I noticed someone deleted the information on the Parents of John Puttenham. Here is my two cents. Here is a link to the works or some of the works that have been done on the Puttenham/Putnam family Here is a link to one of the articles that proves John Puttenham was a decendant of Sir Roger de Puttenham through his son Robert Puttenham makeing the Putnam line of Salem Massachusetts Armigerous Despite the College of Arms going off Moriarty's work and the New England Historical society being unsure of the line at this time. I believe this work proves the linage correctly. I have not yet to give this information to the College or Historical society.
