[[ First Bio placed here - Daughter of Richard and Mary Gould. Wife of John Putnam. Mother of Thomas Putnam, Elizbaeth Putnam, John Putnam, Nathaniel Putnam, Sara Putnam, Phoebe Putnam and John Putnam.

According to the Putnam ancestry in England was published in New England Families, Third Series, Vol II, William Richard Cutter, ed. (Lewis: New York, 1915, pp. 1075-76). John Putnam (1579-1662), 12th Putnam (Puttenham) in this line, son of Nicholas and Margaret Putnam, was the immigrant Putnam ancestor.]]

John lived on his inherited estates at Ashton Abbots until he immigrated to Massachusetts by 1640/41, when he received a grant of land and where his wife Priscilla Deacon (?-?) [Priscilla Gould?]was enrolled in the church in Salem, MA. John was enrolled on April 4, 1647. John and Priscilla were the parents of Elizabeth, Thomas II (1614-1686), John, Nathaniel, Phoebe, and John.

Thomas Putnam II was the father of Joseph (1669-1724) and grandfather of the famous Israel Putnam (1717/18-1790) (See ALL OF THE ABOVE I, p. 297.) Three generations of Putnams (John, Thomas, Joseph) were among the few prominent, wealthy families in tiny Salem Villege, MA in the 17th century. [. . .]

This biographical material (after 1st 2 paragraphs) has been excerpted from volume one of the two volume ALL OF THE ABOVE, I & II, by Richard Baldwin Cook. See the contributor's page for more information.
