    Default noted the use of boiling

    This "noted" is translated as "write down, take note of", but I only know two usages of "note" as a verb" : "pay attention to" and "mention". What do you think?

    ex)By the 16th and 17th centuries, firearms were being used more frequently throughout Europe, causing a major change in warfare and the medicine needed to treat injuries...Vigo was one of the first surgeons to write about how to handle gunpowder wounds, and he noted the use of boiling oil to neutralize the poison of the gunpowder.

    "Note" can certainly mean to write something down.

    Note | Define Note at Dictionary.com

    The context here clearly says he was one of the first to write things down on this subject.
