Thomas lost seven of his children during childbirth, a loss that he and his wife felt deeply. He also is just plain greedy. He covets other people's land and this whole witch hunt works well for his schemes. Putnam hopes to pick up the land of accused witches for next to nothing. Consequently he is not a well liked man in the community.
