- THE WIFE OF SAMUEL2 TOPLIFFE OF DORCHESTER, MASS. BY J. GARDNER BARLETT.
- ' The following record in the files of the Middlesex County Court October term, 1678, show the maiden name of Patience the wife of Samuel2 Topliffe of Dorchester, a point searched for by the writer for several years, and believed to be hitherto unknown:
- ' These are to Certify all Persons whom it may Concerne that Samuell Toplife of Dorchester and Patience Soms of Boston have been plublished three severall times according to Order without any Opposition as is attested per mee Rich: Taylor
- Boston, October 5th, 1671.
- ' Patience2 Somes was the daughter of Morris1 and Elizabeth (Kendall) Somes of Gloucester, where she was born in 1652. Her elder brother John2 Somes settled in Boston in 1670, and doubtless his sister Patience lived with him, as she is said to be of Boston at the time of publishment.
- ' How it happened that this record of publishment of parties living in Boston and Dorchester in Suffolk County was deposited in the court files of Middlesex County seven years after the marriage took place, is indeed a puzzle. No marriage record is known to exist.
- ' In the Topliffe genealogy in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register for April, 1904, it was erroneously suggested that the wife of Samuel2 Topliffe was probably Patience Trescott of Dorchester, she being the only girl of suitable age to be found in the records of Dorchester bearing the name "Patience."

- ' TOPLIFF.-- Since my article on "The Descendants of Clement Topliff" appeared in the REGISTER (ante, vol. 58, pp. 117-121), Mr. Joseph Gardner Bartlett had made the discovery that the wife of Samuel2 Topliff (Clement1) was not Patience Trescott but Patience Somes, the daughter of Morris and Elizabeth (Kendall) Somes of Gloucester, Mass. Savage says she died 8 Sept. 1728, in her 76th year or aged 76, and consequently was born 1652-3.
