The present generation of the Putech family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the village of Puttock in the county of Sussex. This habitation surname was originally derived from the Old English word puttoc which means kite, denoting a bird belonging to the hawk family.

Putech Early Origins



The surname Putech was first found in Sussex where one of the first records of the family was Aelfricus (Aefric) Puttoc (died 1051) Archbishop of York (1023-1041) and Bishop of Worcester. He may have been the bishop who crowned Harold Harefoot king of England in 1036. However, when Harthacnut became king, he and others were charged to disinter Harold's body and throw it away. By the Battle of Hastings they had branched westward to Somerset where Aluried Puttoch held estates at that time.

Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules.

The recorded variations of Putech include Puttoch, Puttock, Puttoc, Puttick, Puttoche, Puttocke, Putticke, Putteck, Puttex, Putton, Putten, Potton, Puttone, Pottone, Pottock, Pottocke, Pottoch and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Putech were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: David Putten who landed in America in 1753; William Puttex (Puttecks) settled in Barbados in 1634.
