Excerpt from The Putnam Lineage

During the. Past ten years, through the activity of various historical commissions and departments of the British Govern ment, there has been published a vast amount of historical information. Many series of the rollsforming the National Archives of England have been calendared, and by means of excellent indexes the originals have been made easily acces sible to historical and genealogical students. During all these years careful watch has been kept for references to members of the Putnam family prior to the migration. And especial search has been made from time to time in such places as promised reasonable results. The Introductory part of the History of the Putnam Family* was devoted entirely to the history of the family in England, the results of research in the British archives by the author in and prior to 1894. In 1898 the late Dr. Marshall of the Heralds' College, told the author at a con ference when the question of the soundness of the deductions as set forth in the Introductory part was discussed, that in his opinion no claims were advanced in the pedigree there printed which did not appear to be reasonable, and he added that he himself was convinced as to the general. Correctness of the descent there given. During the past few years the esti mate of Dr. Marshall has been shown to be well founded. Some slight changes have been necessitated by the discovery of new material, but these changes strengthen the pedigree as a whole. For instance, from an ancient lawsuit we learn that Roger Puttenham was the son of Roger. From other documents we learn that the elder Roger had a wife Alina, who is undoubtedly the lady of Puttenham (domina de Puttenham) who is men.
