Hello Lorraine, I've been able to follow the line back to Anachitil Born around 1040 in Normandy. Also Uta De Puttenham born approx 1054. Many were lost during the Crusades fighting the Muslims. You might find some interesting information at this link:

George Puttenham 1529 to 1590

The Early Putnam Lineage in England



The following section gives a very rough outline of the early English ancestral line of Puttenham. This line descends from the keepers or tenants of the estate of Puttenham in the 900s.Prior to about 1400 there were no last names unless you were of royal bloodlines. People simply had given names attached to where they were from.

As surnames came into existence, these people took the name Puttenham and as time went on, the name was spelled as pronounced, Putnam. The name is still found in England today, and where it is found it is now spelled Putman as well as Putnam. The Puttenham variation is now extremely rare.


Please keep in mind that early records, if found at all, are tenuous at best. Certain lines are accepted by genealogists, but may or may not be exact. Early ancestors are listed as they are the only known folks holding titles to certain lands, but we must assume that they were not the only folks living on the lands. Just like many American blacks took the surnames of their masters, many tenants were associated with the names of their lords. A great many relationships prior to about 1300 are circumspect.

For what it is worth, the following section on the early Putnam history is included in this genealogical history. This is an important part of my Putman history and to all others descending from the two English immigrants, John Putnam and Thomas Putnam.

My great-great-great-great grandmother was Eliza Ann Putnam, married to Edward Waite. Eliza's line is: Eliza --> Ephron and Phoebe (Wilmarth) Putnam --> Jonas and Rhoda (Unknown) Putnam --> Asaph and Sarah (Park) Putnam --> Isaac and Anna (Fuller) Putnam --> Edward and Mary (Hale) Putnam --> Thomas and Ann (Holyoke) Putnam --> John and Priscilla (Gould) Putnam
