See: Mary (Lovett) Patch.

There were two men, Thomas Patch, of Essex County, Massachusetts, at the same time. Give or take, they were contemporaries--Thomas Patch, Sr., died at Beverly, 28 September 1711 (Beverly VR 2:523); the other man, Sergeant Thomas Patch, died at Wenham, 9 February 1721 (Wenham VR, 214). One married Mary Lovett (of Salem and Beverly, daughter of John Lovett Sr., one married Mary Scott (of Ipswich, daughter of Thomas Scott).

Mary (Lovett) Patch died, probably Beverly, before 28 March 1707 (deed so dated).[1]

Mary (Scott) Patch, widow of Thomas Patch, died Wenham, Essex County, then "a. above 80 y."[2]

General List of published materials regarding Patch marriage (whether Scott or Lovett):

James Savage (1861) reported Thomas Patch married "Mary Scott of Ipswich, d. Thomas ..."[3] "Thomas, Wenham, s. of Nicholas, b. a. 138, freem. 1670, rep. 189; m. Mary Scott of Ipswich, d. of Thomas ..."
Note: Though it is clearly in John Lovett will, Savage is silent about his daughters' marriages. (3:124).
This association seems followed by Augustus A. Galloupe in his work to annotate the Records of the First Church in Beverly, Massachusetts, 1667-1772 (1905), wherein we find her name Mary edited to add the surname as "[Scott, of Ipswich]. The editors of NEHG Register have found Galloupe's annotations to be "often incorrect," see Errata.[4]
In 1908, Ezra Sterns identified Patch's wife as "Mary A. Lovett ... of Ipswich, the daughter of Thomas Lovett."[5] "Thomas ... son of Nicholas and Elizabeth Patch, was born in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1640. Savage mentions him as Thomas of Wenham, and the year of his birth about 1536. He was made freeman in 170 and representative in 1679. His wife was Mary A. Lovett (Savage says Scott) of Ipswich, daughter of Thomas Lovett, and among their children were Thomas, James, Stephen, Isaac, Ephraim, Timothy, Simeon, Sarah and Marah (Mariah) ..." See the following page for line of descent from son Timothy.
In 1917, and as Mary Scott, this marriage was reported in an overview of the Patch family appearing in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register.[6]
In 1947, Walter Goodwin Davis reported the Patch-Scott marriage, again without providing supporting reference.[7]
In his 2009 sketch of Thomas Scott of Ipswich, Robert Charles Anderson reported his Scott's daughter Mary married Thomas Patch.[8]

Torrey has references for both marriages, but only identifies Thomas as son of Nicholas in the Patch-Scott record.
