Clarence Almon Torrey’s New England Marriages Prior to 1700 is the most complete index of its kind, naming almost 99% of the married couples in New England before 1700. Over a period of forty years Torrey extracted every available reference to marriages of early New England settlers from thousands of books and journals in the library of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, creating the most frequently consulted finding-aid in all of early New England genealogy. When he died in 1962, his manuscript had achieved almost legendary fame.  In 1991 Melinde Sanborn produced the first supplement to Torrey, a work that was developed largely from additions, corrections, and deletions that had appeared in the major genealogical journals in the nearly thirty years since Torrey’s death.
