What Proves Henry Puttenham is not the Father of John Puttenham

0 votes
I know this is almost the same question. However I did have some links wrong. I am trying to understand the evidence we have.

Does anybody know what what evidence suggests Henry Puttenham is not the father of John Puttenham?

As it stands I cannot see any evidence for parentage on the profile at all, Henry or John. Try taking it up with the PM.

Thank you I wasn't shure if I was missing something. The PM didn't know anything.  Norman Graham makes Henry his father and Margaret Vincent said in her book that he was a brother or cousin to William and Nicholas Puttenham that some genealogist believe Henry to be his father and others believe he is a decendant of Richard Puttenham making them cousins. Im trying to find out if we have any more information or not that could confirm the lineage one way or the other
I agree with MacKinnon.

First the question should be: what proves Henry is the father vs anybody else?

The references in the profile go to a blank free space page, it appears the author intended to add more information but hasn't done so yet.
So apparently Henry is the father proven by the fact he was in the will of his brother.  This really frustrates me because the College of Arms and some other people want to base my right to arms off research that isn't proven. When they had accepted my family's rights before.
