Biographical history

John Puttenham (1859-1930) was born in Gravesend, County Kent, England and came to Canada in 1888. After a period spent working with the Y.M.C.A. and other evangelical work, he was ordained to the ministry in connection with the Baptist Church, and served in the following charges: Keady, Westport, Delta, Kemptville, Stayner, Decewsville and Teeterville. From there he went to West Shelby, in New York State, where he served one year under the Methodist Episcopal Church. He returned to Canada, and in 1911, was received into full connection with the Montreal Conference of The Methodist Church, later to be transferred to the Bay of Quinte Conference. He served on the following charges: Eganville (1911-1914), Finch (1915-1917), Escott (1918-1920), Elginburg (1921-1924), Perth Road (1925-1929). Puttenham was married to Miss Annie Hilts.
