Calvin predated the Puritans. Their theology was influenced by him - not the other way around.
Puritanism was a movement, not a denomination.
Early Congregationalists were Calvinists . . . as were Presbyterians . . . as were some Anglicans.
There was a small denomination that used the term Puritan in the 1600's but as you said for the most part is was consider more of a movement.
