Torrey's New England Marriages to 1700 is a source that many of us have leaned on. It's an amazing compilation of information derived from pretty much all of the sources Torrey could find. And he was an insightful genealogist who was careful to cite his sources. However, as with any secondary source, it can't be regarded as Revealed Truth. It's no better than the sources he used, and I've seen suggestions that he was somewhat indiscriminate in accepting sources. I've noticed citations to one source that is now known to have been fraudulent in part, and I've seen data in Torrey that more recent research has found to be wrong.
Since Patience was a daughter of PGM immigrants, I suggest that you consult the Great Migration Directory (or ask someone else for a lookup) to see what sources are listed for her father. That would be one indication of how well regarded the 1906 Topliffe book is.
