Charlie Noble?

An old timer pointing to a house roof one day said to my wife, "See that? That is called a Charlie Noble."
I know there is a nautical term but has anyone heard of a part of a house design that is called a Charlie Noble?
Any pictures?
Thanks.

Likely he may have just been talking about the chimney?

Most likely the copper flashing around the chimney or other parts. Just a wag.

Why not ask the man that said it?
