The Putnam & Putman Families



There were several Putnam and Putman lines that came to America well before the Revolution. Two were English, one Dutch and one German. The two English lines had a common line back from the mid 1300s. Then one of the lines led to the John Putnam who came to Salem, Massachusetts in 1642, and the other led to the Thomas Putnam who came to Gloucester, Virginia in 1647. The latter is my line, and much of the text information pertains to this ‘Southern’ Putnam/Putman line.
