From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  NOTING. The name of the minute made by a notary on a bill of exchange, after 
  it has been presented for acceptance or payment, consisting of the initials 
  of his name, the date of the day, month and year when such presentment was 
  made, and the reason, if any has been assigned, for non-acceptance or non-
  payment, together with his charge. The noting is not indispensable, it being 
  only a part of the protest; it will not supply the protest. 4 T. R. 175 
  Chit. on Bills, 280, 398. See Protest.
