This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Thomas Toppe of Bridmore in Berwick St, Jonh, Wiltshire (d before 29.05.1598)

i. Sir Francis Toppe or Topp, 1st Bart of Tormarton, Gloucestershire (d 1676)
  TCB (vol IV p 44) identifies Sir Francis as "presumably son of" John Topp of Salisbury & Stockton (d 13.08.1632) by Mary, dau of John Hooper (see below). This appears to be wrong. BEB1841 mentions the Topps of Stockton and then describes Sir Francis as "Deriving from the same source as the Topps of Stockton" but does not connect them. BLG1952 (Combe formerly of Oaklands Park) identifies Rebecca as elder daughter of Francis of Combe Bissett and sister of Sir Francis.
