Hill, Ct. They were admitted to full communion in the first church
at Fairfield, Sept. 30, 1705. Mr. Sanford left a large landed estate.
He was an engineer and built the first stockade fort at Saybrook
at the mouth of the Connecticut River for protection against the
Indians. His will dated Jan. 29, 1729.

The widow was still living in 1764, as is shown by a settlement
under his will, probated March 28, 1729, between her and the first
five children. His stone of blue slate is still standing (1908) in the
Old Fairfield Cemetery and bears this inscription:

"Here lies ye body of Mr. Ezekiel Sanford aged 62 years dec'd
March ye 2nd 1728/9." (History of Fairfield, Conn., p. 318.)
Lieut. Ezekiel Sanford renewed the Covenant May 27, 1705

The author has a copy of the covenant dated Fairfield, Jan. 7,
1764, whereby the brothers Joseph, Lemuel, Zachariah, Ezekiel and
Samuel bound themselves in the sum of one hundred pounds to
support their Mother, Rebecca.

They had nine children, all born and baptized in Fairfield, Ct.:

From its genealogical significance, the will of Sarah Shelley of
Boston is reproduced verbatim et literatim :

"I Sarah Shelley of Boston in New England, Spinster, being Sick in body,
but through mercy of sound disposing minde Knowing the uncertainty of this
present Life do hereby revoke all former and make and declare this my last will
and Testament, etc.

It. I release unto my Brother William Chamberlain a debt of Six pounds
which he oweth me and I give and bequeath unto my Sister his wife and unto her
three daughters Twenty Shillings apeice in money: etc."

From the will of Sarah Shelley it is apparent that Rebecca, the
wife of William Chamberlain, was her "sister."

Rebecca Chamberlain was marriageable in 1648, and became the
mother of thirteen children between Aug. 13, 1649, and Sept. 27,
1671. She was, therefore, probably born between the years of 1625
and 1634. She and her sister Sarah Shelley were of the same gener-
ation as Capt. Isaac Addington and his wife Anne (Leverett)
Addington and since they were not sisters of the latter, they were

^ikely to have been either own sisters or half sisters to Capt. Isaac
Addington, who appeared in Boston in New England as a "single-
man" before June 6, 1640, and lived here until his death in 1652

The Ancient surname of Shattuck is spelled in various ways —
Shatac, Shattauk, Shathooke, Shadoc, Chaddock, Chadwyke and
Chadioc. It is probably a name of Anglo-Saxon origin. As early
as 1525, we find the names of Samuel and Alice Shattocke on the
Parhament Subsidy Rolls of Assessments in Tolland, Somerset-
shire, England. As Chaddock and Chadwick, the name appears in
Lancashire and Worcestershire. Chadwick is a name of great
antiquity in England. The first William de Chadwyke was of the
fourteenth century. Among his contemporaries were others of
that same name. Uniting with different patrician families, they
gave to England, as well as to America, a long line of noble descend-
ants. Going back further in the records, we find Sir John de Chyd-
eoke (Chideoke or Chadeoke) who was one of the Barons of Somer-
setshire as early as the thirteenth century. When William Shattuck
came to America, his name was spelled Shattocke. The names
Chaddock and Chadwick and Shaddock were also used inter-
changeably in New England with Shattuck. The family here in
America has produced a people of great value to the communities
in which they have lived. Many of them have been graduated
from the New England Colleges and have taken their places in
important walks of life.

Surnames," p. 167; "Colonial Families," by American Hist. Soc,
Inc., pp. 199-200.)

1. William Shattuck was born about 1621 or 1622, in England.
He evidently came from England to America in his minority, but
no record of his arrival in America has been found. His father may
have died on the voyage over, and his mother may have been the
widow, Damaris Shattuck (Shattuck, L.: "Memorials of the De-
scendants of Wilham Shattuck," p. 361), who was admitted to the
church at Salem, in 1641. This, however, is not proven, as there
is no full record of her children. Samuel Shattuck, the first son
recorded, was born in England, in 1620. William Shattuck may
have been his brother or more probably, was a near relative. Dam-
aris Shattuck married (second) Captain Thomas Gardner, of Salem,
Mass. As early as 1642, William Shattuck's name is listed in
Watertown, Massachusetts, when land was granted to "William
Chattuck," By grants and purchases he added to his possessions
until by 1664, he was a man of considerable property. William
Shattuck was a weaver, but it is evident that he was also a farmer.
He died, Aug. 14, 1672, in Watertown, Mass. He married, about
1642, Susanna. She married (second) Nov. 18, 1673, Richard

1. William Shattuck was the remote ancestor with whom we
have been enabled to connect ourselves, in our history, upon
satisfactory evidence; and we begin with his, in our classification,
as the first, or earliest known generation. From him, as their pro-
genitor, have descended nearly all, if not every one, of those who
now bear his name in America. He was born in England in 1621 or
2, and died in Watertown, Mass., Aug. 14, 1672, aged 50 years.

Massachusetts was first colonized by the English Puritan emi-
grants in Boston and its vicinity, in 1630. Watertown was settled
in the same year — ten years later than the founding of Plymouth.
This town is in Middlesex County, from four to seven miles westerly
of Boston, and has Cambridge, easterly, intervening between the
two places. It originally included the present town of Waltham,
incorporated separately in 1737. It is thus one of the most ancient,
and it was early one of the most important towns in the Province.
The General Court and the Provincial Congress held several sessions
in this town. Mr. Shattuck's name appears in an old list of the
proprietors of Watertown, made about 1642, twelve years after
its first settlement, although he was then only twenty years of age.

Mr. Shattuck is sometimes denominated a weaver. He resided
in Watertown about thirty years; and by his sagacity, industry
and economy, though dying in the full vigor of manhood, he acquired
for the times in which he hved, a large property. He held a respect-
able position among his fellow townsmen; and his family and the
families to whom they were allied by marriage were highly respected,
and among the most wealthy and influential in Watertown.

He was interred in the ancient burying-ground situated on the
old road leading from Cambridge to Watertown, a short distance

282 Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service

westerly of Mount Auburn. A simple but substantial marble
tablet, resting in a granite base, has recently been erected near the
northwesterly corner of this ground, at the turn of the road to
Brighton, bearing the following inscription: "To perpetuate the
memory of William Shattuck, who died in Watertown, Aug. 14,

1672, aged 50; The Progenitor of the families that have borne his
name in America."

William Shattuck was married about 1642, when he was twenty
years of age. The christian name of his wife was Susanna; but
neither her surname, nor her parentage, nor the exact date or
place of her birth or marriage, have been ascertained. She remained
a widow about fifteen months after his death, and married Nov. 18,

1673, Mr. Richard Norcross, who survived her. She died in Water-
town, Dec. 11, 1686, fourteen years after the death of her first

In his will Mr. Shattuck mentions "his ten younger children,"
as if he had others, but it does not appear that he had more than
that number. The births of the second, third and tenth only are
entered upon the Watertown records. The remainder are ascer-
tained from other authentic evidence.

Children of William and Susanna Shattuck, all of whom were
born in Watertown, Mass. :

Dr. Philip Shattuck, s. of William (p. 61), was b. in Watertown
and d. within the present limits of Waltham, June 26, 1722, ae. 73.
His place of residence was in the vicinity of the Waverley Station
on the Fitchburg Railroad, easterly of Beaver Brook; and his
estate extended northerly into Cambridge. He was a physician
of eminence, and for a long period a leading man in the public
affairs of the town. He was often chosen moderator of town meet-
ings, and held the offices of assessor, town treasurer, chairman of
the selectmen, and very many other important stations of public
trust and responsibility.

The gravestone was standing in the Waltham burying-ground, in 1852, bear-
ing the following inscription: (The Genealogy of the Lawrence Family and Bond's
Family contain further information concerning these families), "Here lyes Buried
ye Body of Doctb Philip Shattuck, who deced June ye 26th, 1722, in ye 74th
year of his Age. Blessed are the Dead that Die in the Lord."

A new marble tablet has recently been erected, to which the above inscription
was transferred, with the following appended: "The above record was transferred
from a moss-grown crumbling head-stone of slate, to one of more enduring marble,
by a descendant of the 5th generation, A. D. 1853."

A petition dated June 19, 1683, purporting to be from Philip Shattuck, is
on the court files of Middlesex County.

His will, dated Jan. 29th, and proved Aug. 30th, 1722, is recorded in the
Middlesex Records, Vol. XVI, p. 436.

He m. 2, Feb. 11, 1680, Rebecca Chamberlain, who survived him, and d.
in 1728. She also left a will, dated Dec. 13, 1727; proved Nov. 19, 1728, (Mid.
Rec, Vol. XVIII, p. 522) in which Amos and Philip were appointed her executors.
She bequeathed to her sons Benjamin and Joseph, 20s each; to Isaac, one feather
bed; to Sarah Parkhurst, "half my wearing apparell, and half my wearing and
housell linnen, my biggest iron pot, one pewter platter, a brass mortar and pestle";
to granddaughter Rebecca Gale, "half my wearing apparell, half my wearing and
housel linnen, and one pewter platter;" to dau. Ann Sanderson "my wainscot
cobbart that stands in the dwelling room;" to sons Amos and Philip, "all the rest
and residue of the estate," to be equally divided between them. He had 10 chil-
dren by his 2nd wife, Rebecca Chamberlain, all born in Watertown, the 4th child,
Joseph, b. March 6, 1687; m. Mary Ladd.

In some early legal instruments, Phillip Shattuck is designated
"Weaver." He had two sons named Phillip, living at the same time,
one by each wife. April 6, 1671, Michael Bairstow, of Wat., for
love and affection to kinswoman Deborah, wife of Phillip Shattuck,
of Wat., gives to Philhp and Deborah 6 acres, bounded E. by Richard
Sawtel; S. by wid. Kemball and John Mix; W. by John Eddy;
N. by Camb. hne. It is not unlikely that Deborah lived with her
uncle Michael, as he had no children and her father was dead, and
that this was a marriage portion, bestowed a few months after her

Dr. Joseph Shattuck, son of Philip (p. 73), was born in Water-
town, March 6, 1687. He was a physician and resided in Boston,
from 1708 to 1715. He afterwards removed to Watertown and

284 Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service

assumed the medical practice of his father, where he died in the
fuU vigor of hfe, May 19, 1729, aged 42 years, 2 months, 13 days.

He married in Boston, Oct. 12, 1708, Mary Ladd of that town.
His first 3 or 4 children were born in Boston and were baptized in
the Brattle Street Church, of which the parents were members.
They had nine children, the 5th, Samuel, b. May 29, 1716; married
Sarah Clesson.

Children of Dr. Joseph and Mary (Ladd) Shattuck, born in

9. William, b. 1725; Samuel, his brother, was his guardian in 1737.

51. Samuel Shattuck, son of Dr. Joseph (p. 86), was born in
Watertown, May 29, 1716; and died in Montague, Dec. 29, 1760,
aged 44 years, 7 months. He probably was the Samuel Shattuck
who was a proprietor of Petersham at its first incorporation.
(Wilson's Address, pp. 15, 88.) He afterwards settled in Deerfield.
His eldest son served a campaign in the French war; and on his
return brought home the small pox, and gave it to both his parents.
The mother and son recovered, but the father died. So far as the
information contained in this volume shows, the name of Shattuck
among the Descendants of Dr. Philip, his grandfather, has been
preserved only in the line of this Samuel. In the other branches it
appears to have become extinct.

He married Dec. 4, 1740, Sarah Clesson, born Jan. 10, 1722,
daughter of Joseph Clesson and Hannah Arms of Northampton,
and granddaughter of Matthew Clesson and Mary Phelps, who
were married in 1670. Her will, dated Sept. 14, 1785, appoints her
kinsman, Eliakim Arms, her executor and leaves legacies to 10
children or their representatives.
