Shattuck

"Sometimes it is written nearly in conformity
with the true orthography and pronunciation, as Shatac,
Shattauk, Shathooke, Shathauk, and Shatoc, Shattock, Shattocke.
At other times the pronunciation is varied by substituting
the sounds of d for t, and o for n, and is written Shadduck,
Shadock, Shadoc, and Chaddock, Chadduck, Chadock, Chadoc ...
It is also written Shaddic, Chadwick, Chadwyke, Chadioke,
Chadioc. Shattocke was the spelling in use when our first
American ancestors emigrated to this country..."

Shattuck/Page/Symons/Morris Ancestry & Quaker Ancestry

Much appreciation to Philip Shaddock for his research on the Shattocke/Shattock/Shaddock/Shattuck ancestry.

According to Philip Shaddock (researcher and Shattocke family historian), in his writing regarding the Massachussetts Shattucks, "two Shattocke immigrants to Massachusetts, William Shattock, who settled in Watertown, just outside of Boston, and Samuel Shattock, who settled in Salem, just to the north. His sources were Charles Henry Pope (The Pioneers of Massachusetts, Boston 1900) and Sidney Perley (The History of Salem, Salem 1924-28). (I am using the name "Shattock or Shattocke" as it was originally spelled when Shattockes first came to Massachusetts from England.)"

According to Massachussetts Shattucks - Shattocke Family History, an online article by Philip Shaddock, "the earliest Shattuck immigrants were Puritans, part of a mass exodus of Puritans from England." The Shattuck immigrants were "William and Samuel" according to Charles Edward Banks, an early 20th century researcher. William and Samuel were from an unknown parish in Somerset County. Samuel's birthdate is ca. 1620 and he was likely born in England, not the colony. His death is listed occuring in 1689. One of his daughters was Damaris. This makes one wonder if the "widow Damaris" was Samuel's mother and his daughter's namesake. Yet, that remains inconclusive.

Philip Shaddock mentions the following regarding William Shattuck (1621-1672), a Puritan, and theorized single founder of most Massachussetts Shattucks:

William Shattuck's name appears as Wm. Shattocke in the will of Thomas Olliver of Boston dated 13 March 1652. He apparently owed the estate money.

Lemuel in his Descendants book lists a third Shattuck, William Shattuck of Boston, who does not appear to be the patriarch of any other Shattuck in Lemuel's records. He lived in Boston between 1650 and 1658, before moving on to New Jersey to escape religious persecution.

More on William Shattuck of Boston is below in the tree.

According to research by Philip Shaddock, the Shattucks are descended from the Celtic Shattocke ancestral family with surname variants including Shattock, Shaddock, Shaddick, Shadwick, Shadduck, Chaddock and others with a common ancestor from around A.D. 1275. However, they are probably not descended from the Celt population found in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall. Etymologists consistently classify the surname as Germanic, making the Shattockes Germanic Celts and the most likely scenario is that they came to England, specifically west Somerset, in the first quarter of the 14th century. In his study of the Somerset Shattockes, Philip Shaddock shows they do come from west Somerset, specifically the Taunton Deanne, about 130 square miles west of Taunton, Somerset, England. Kees Recourt has created a map showing where living descendants of Shattocke ancestors originated from (Switzerland) and where they dispersed to. Shattockes belong to the U152 subclade. The genetic evidence is that Shattockes are descended from the La Tène culture. For more information, read the following (and do so in the order listed):

Samuel (or William and sometimes listed as John)
Shattuck (Shattock/Shattocke/errantly written as Shatluck in some more recent genealogies)

b. ca. 1584
d. ca. 1641

I lean towards his name being Samuel after reading the work Philip Shaddock at http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america/samuel-shattuck-of-salem) and http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america as well as The History of the Hunt Family by Roger D. Hunt (2011).

His family may have emigrated to Salem, MA, on the Mary & John from Somerset, England. He either died in England or aboard the ship or shortly after arrival in Massachussetts. However, it is conjecture that he died on a ship sailing from England to New England, America, before 1642. This is mentioned at Gilbert Park Fay Family Genealogy in reference to William's father. It is also mentioned in reference to Samuel or William or John as death on the ship in 1637 being a possible alternative to death in Boston in 1641 at Geni. Yet, it is worth noting that Geni has many errors and must be used judiciously. The death at sea is speculated at the following as well: Genealogy.com Forum Re: Samuel SHATTUCK b 1594 Dorsetshire, England; died Essex Co, MA; RootsWeb, Needham Family Genealogy at KSU and others. These could just be and are likely repeated errors or speculations or actual occurrences not yet proven. And none of them specify an original source. Some of the sites mention writings of Lemuel Shattuck (see above), but Philip Shaddock, family researcher, indicates that Lemuel Shattuck says nothing regarding death at sea and agrees it's just conjecture. However, in spring 2016, Philip did indicate "A 'widow Damaris' is recorded as being admitted to the church in 1641. The colony records do not indicate that any of the original Shattuck settlers had a wife named Damaris. Damaris was apparently married to another unnamed Shattock who died on the trip over." Conjecture: Was she the mother of Samuel mentioned to the right?

"The Mary and John made two trips from Plymouth, England to Massachusetts Bay, one in 1630 and once in 1633-34. According to a book by Ann Natalie Hansen (The English Origins of the 'Mary and John' Passengers, Sign of the Cock, 1985), the passengers came from many towns in Dorset, Devon and Somerset. Charles Edward Banks, in The Planters of The Commonwealth in Massachusetts, 1620-1640, Boston, 1930 (p. 87), wrote: 'Mary and John, Thomas Chubb, Master. She sailed from Plymouth, England, March 20 [1630], with one hundred and forty passengers from the counties of Somerset, Dorset, and Devon.' The town that was established after the first voyage of 1630 was Dorchester, now an historic neighbourhood of Boston. Towns some of the passengers were from were Dorchester (Dorset), Bridgport (Somerset), Crewkerne (Somerset) and Exeter (Devon). According to Banks (The Winthrop Fleet of 1630. Boston, 1930) the settlers in Massachusetts were assembled and sponsored by Reverend John White, Vicar of Dorchester, England, in whose honor Dorchester, Massachusetts was named. It must have been a night before sailing of excitement and chill fear among the strangers who met in the coastal town of Plymouth in the south east of Devon, England" (source: http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america). Note that per that source, no Shattockes are on the passenger list for the Mary and John in 1630 and 1630-34, but the list is incomplete and has not been fully reconstructed. Philip Shaddock indicates that we do not find William and Samuel on the Mary and John passenger lists because they would have been 12 and 14 in 1633-34 and children were not usually listed as passengers.

Given the 1641 date for the widow Demaris (to the right) presenting herself at the church, Erica Isabel Howton, curator for Geni.com, does not favor her arrival as being during 1630-1634, but later. Philip Shaddock writes, "In the end it probably does not matter if the Shattockes who emigrated to the Massachusetts Bay colony were on the Mary and John. The fact is they appear to have been related to the Popes so they must have come from the same parish or nearby parish in England. They would almost certainly be from the 'West Country,' including Dorset, Devon and Somerset because that is where the Mary and John passengers came from. And those from Somerset were from Taunton or towns nearby, or a few miles north in Bridgport and its vicinity" (source: http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america).

Damarius (Damaris/Demaris)
likely "the widow" of Salem

b. 1609 in England
d. 28 November 1674, Essex, Massachusetts

Philip Shaddock indicates "The 'widow' Damaris Shattock is recorded as being admitted to the church in 1641. She was either widowed back in England, on the trip over, or sometime between 1634 and 1641" (source: http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america). He leans to the latter, making Damaris the widow "a possible candidate" to be the mother of William and Samuel, again conjecture.

Others argue against this idea: According to https://www.geni.com/people/William-Shattuck-of-Watertown/6000000002603593786#/tab/overview, "William SHATTUCK - b. about 1622; d. Aug. 14, 1672, Watertown, Middlesex Co., MA. Buried at Arlington Street Cemetery, with gravesite having a memorial tablet [inscription] erected in 1853 by Lemuel SHATTUCK, a descendant. William, a weaver by trade, was at Watertown, Middlesex Co., MA by 1639, but his origins and arrival in America are based on speculation. Attempts to identify his mother as the widow Damaris SHATTUCK and his younger brother as Samuel SHATTUCK of Salem, MA are not supported by available evidence" (emphasis mine). In a discussion with Erica Isabel Howton, curator for Geni.com, she shares that there is no evidence supporting William of Watertown being a son of the widow and indicates it is only conjecture that William of Boston and NJ could be her son. Philip Shaddock writes, "In Lemuel's Descendants he assigns William Shattuck of Boston and Samuel Shattuck of Salem to the appendix because he is not sure how they are related to the other Shattucks. And there has been no documents that support or rule out making William of Watertown, Samuel of Salem and the widow Damaris of Salem a nuclear family. This shows why DNA testing may be the only way such issues will be resolved. I am not particularly married to any of the scenarios I have explored because I know that Y-DNA testing will sort things out in the end. What is really exciting about the DNA research right now is that it is indicating that the Watertown Shattucks and Salem Shaddocks are very, very closely related. The only caveat at this point is that the South Carolina Shaddocks, who are proven by DNA analysis to descend from a common ancestor Massachusetts Shattockes, and are in fact very close relatives with one particular branch, are not proven beyond doubt to be descendants of the Salem Shaddocks. So I cannot be sure we are testing Salem Shaddocks, even though recent research as indicated the probable migration to South Carolina of Shaddocks was from Salem and Boston, not Watertown. We have a number of DNA tests going right now with Shattucks from other branches of Massachusetts Shattockes, so I am hoping clarity will be brought to the situation in the next few months [as of May 2016]" (source: http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america, emphases mine).

At times, this Damarius is listed as "Damarius Hopkins" and appears in genealogies around the Shattucks. However, it is speculated that it is an attempt to connect her to the Mayflower. Lemuel Shattuck's book on page 114 discusses Robert Shattuck's wife Ruhamah Cook (m. in Plymouth, MA, 9 September 1744). She is indicated as probably being a descendant of Francis Cooke who died in Plymouth 17 April 1663, one of the original Mayflower Pilgrims. Francis married a woman from southern Belgium bordering on France -- "a French lady" named Hester. Among their children was Jacob Cooke who is said to have married Demaris Hopkins, daughter of Stephen Hopkins, in 1646. This would indicate that a Damaris with the maiden name Hopkins may not be in this part of my ancestry. Some sources mention that Samuel (or William or John) Shattuck had a wife named Damaris who, after his death, married Thomas Gardner (his 3rd wife). The Demaris here is likely "the widow" of Salem, but there is no evidence supporting that her maiden name was Hopkins. According to page 152 of The History of the Hunt Family by Roger D. Hunt (2011), Damaris Shattuck, a widow, showed up in Salem in 1641 and subsequently married Capt. Thomas Gardner, a tavern owner. It gives Damaris Shattuck Gardner's death date as 28 November 1674.

     

A critical eye on Damaris UNK ( ? - 1674), m1 UNK Shattuck, m2 Thomas Gardner

A Shattuck migration from Salem and Boston through North Carolina to South Carolina over 20 or 30 years to 1702 might be the most plausible theory according to Philip Shaddock.   |

This Damaris "had to be a daughter of widow Damaris as she was too old in 1653 to be a daughter of William or Samuel" - referring not to the above man, but to one of the two immigrants (Samuel and William) who were born in the 1620s (source: http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america). This is supported on page 153 of The History of the Hunt Family by Roger D. Hunt (2011).

Damarius (Demaris) Shattuck They were Quakers. Issac Page
(Isack Page)
Issac Page was from Great Balloon, England. He was a Quaker who left Boston, Massachussetts, with his family for North Carolina between 1663 and 1664 and established residence with his daughters Damarius and Elizabeth. Philip Shaddock indicates "Isaac Page and his wife Damaris, persecuted in Boston, moved to a community of Quakers in North Carolina in a settlement called Little Rivers in Perquimans county. There are other Shattucks or Shattocks or Shaddocks in Pasquotank county 20 miles by road north of Perquimans county" (source: http://www.shaddock.ca/family-tree/somerset-shattockes/shattucks-in-america/south-carolina-shaddocks). Issac and Damaris Page's migration from Massachusetts to North Carolina to flee persecution is mentioned on page 154 in The History of the Hunt Family by Roger D. Hunt (2011).

William Hibbins was the official who married the couple. The month of '7' was not July, but September under the old-style Julian calender (remember Latin 'sept' is seven)."

  Per Gwen Gransberg and her research: William Symons may have first settled in Massachusetts around Lynn, Essex County. William was also one of the first families to settle East Hampton, Suffolk County, New York. Many court records have been found regarding William and his sons, buying land, selling land, and some very intriguing personal records as well. The Symons lived at a very lively and exciting time for America, as they were some of the first settlers of this New World. The Symons family were devout Quakers. However, the Quakers split over slavery. Some went north, such as to Michigan. Others in the family stayed in the south with their slaves, and clung to slavery. The Symons family was part of the Quaker community in Pequimons Co. and Pasquotank Co., North Carolina.

Morris Origins?

↓ (scroll to read all) ↓

Morris Origins? 1 of 3: "Three brothers came from Wales in the early settlings of the country two settle in the Eastern states and the one we descended from settled in eastern North Carolina." (p. 33, Along the way with Benjamin Morris, (1757-1808) and his wife, Sarah, of North Carolina: his forebearers and descendents from before 1680 to 1996 by Lewis Ecroyd Morris)

Note: The Morris ancestry prior to John II (if he was a II), husband of Damarius Page, is speculative as sources are lacking.

Morris Origins? 2 of 3:Another possible Morris origin according to My Friends the Lambs by Billie Lee Smith, speculates the following: "The Morris family is of direct Welsh descent. The name is variously spelled, and is composed of the Welsh words 'Mawy-rwyce,' meaning strong or brave in battle.

The family claims descent from Eliptan Godrydd, a powerful British chieftain, who founded the fourth royal tribe of Wales, born in 933. From him and others of his descendants sprang the noble houses of Gadogan, the Pryces of Newton Barons, as well as families of Morice of Werrington, Morrice of Eetshanger, Morris of the Hurst, and others.

The earliest arrivals in Virginia, of those bearing the name, as yet found, listed in John Camden Hotten's original Lists of those who went from Great Britain to the Virgian Plantations from 1600-1700. Although this is not complete, it is supposed to contain all extant known records. In this we find the following:

'From the muster of the inhabitants of the college lands in Virginia, Elizabeth Cittie, Capt. William Tucker, Master John Morris, age 24, in the ship Bona Nova, November 1619.'

'Living in Elizabeth Cittie, Va. 16 February 1623, John Morris'"

Morris Origins? 3 of 3: What we do know from The History of the Hunt Family by Roger D. Hunt (2011), p. 332, is that John Morris - who did marry Damaris Page - has uncertain origins. Some speculate that he may have been a Morrison. Others suppose he arrived at Jamestown, VA, in 1619 aboard the Bona Neuva. Still others presume he was from Massachussetts. However, Hunt (mentioned previously) mentions a researcher who "leans to the conclusion that a 26-year-old John Morris, who sailed from London to Virginia on the ship David in 1635 is more likely to have been the family progenitor.... All we can state with confidence is that the name was common among early immigrants to America, and we simply do not know John Morris' ancestry or origins.

The Migration
of
William and Mary Symons

↓ (scroll to read all) ↓

William and Mary Symons, thought to live in Lynn, Massachusetts, prior to moving by 1651 to East Hampton in New York Colony, were the parents of Thomas and Jeremiah Symons, members of the Pasquotank monthly meeting in North Carolina. East Hampton's town records indicate that Goodwife Simons was a witness in the 1657 case of Joshua Garlick's wife who was accused of witchcraft. Testimony given sugggests that "Goody" Simons was guilty of using home remedies provided by "Goody" Garlick, not only for herself but to cure the afflictions of others.

A power-of-attorney was executed by William Symons and his son, Thomas, in 1664 in Isle of Wight in New York Colony (now Gardiner's Island, Suffolk County, L.I. New York), to Jeremiah Conkling of Easthampton to sell his 12 acres of land. It was probably about this time that William Symons removed with his family to Carteret Precinct, Albemarle County (now Pasquotank County), NC. In a letter dated Oct. 1684, to David Gardner, Isle of Wight in New York Colony, signed by Thomas Symons of Little River in Albermarle Co, NC "ye son of William Symons, deceased", Thomas requested that his land at East Hampton be sold (the two six-acre plots which his father had authorized Jeremiah Conkling to sell in 1664). In a postscript he asked to be remembered "to my Uncle Fifthian and other kindred". Again in August or October 1685, Thomas Symons writes to David Gardner authorizing the sale of his land at East Hampton, and reports "my father and mother are both dead". A deed recorded in February, 1685 shows that David Gardiner of Isle of Wight sold for the sume of 14 current money of Boston, the above named property to Jeremiah Conkling, Jr. It is probable that Jeremiah Conkling was related to the Symons family (perhaps the father or brother of Thomas Symons' mother, Mary although this cannot be confirmed).

Mary [surname possibly Fithian or Gardiner]

Amy Hedrick (9th great granddaughter of William and Mary Symons → Thomas Symons → Peter Symons → Jehosaphat Symons → Jesse Symons → Nathan Symons → Sarah Symons (1813-1872) who married William Allen, Sr. → William Allen, Jr., → Florence (Allen) Hedrick → Amy Hedrick's father → Amy Hedrick; she is my 10th cousin) indicates that "Goody" is not a nickname for Mary, that Quakers used Goody like we use Mrs.; e.g., Goody Symons instead of Mrs. Mary Symons. This is substantiated on page 2070 of North Carolina Genealogy, Volumes 13-14 by William Perry Johnson (1967). Some sources have Rebecca White, Mary Conkling, Alice Robbins, Mary Alice Robbins Conkling, but I have put the most conclusive entry based on the research of Gwen Gransberg (9th great granddaughter of William and Mary "Goody" Symons → Jeremiah Symons → Tamar Symons Bundy → Jeremiah Bundy → Moses Bundy → Miriam Bundy Brown (wife of John Brown) → Sarah Brown Monroe (Gwen's great-great-great grandmother) → Gwen's great-great grandparent → Gwen's great grandparent → Gwen's grandparent → Gwen's parent → Gwen Gransberg; she is my 10th cousin).
