    hold your noise

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    “Come I have my tea, mother?” “Thou have more than that” shouted Morel. “Hold your noise, man,” said Mrs. Morel, “and don’t look so ridiculous.”

    hold your noise = shut up, hold your jaw

    Thanks for your efforts.
