The primary information sources for the SHATTUCK family are Genealogies of the Families and Descendants of the Early Settlers of Watertown, Massachusetts, by Dr. Henry Bond (1860), and Memorial of the Descendants of William Shattuck, by Lemuel Shattuck (1855). Additional details have been added from a variety of other sources.

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. William held several public offices in Watertown between 1652 and 1665. His will was dated Aug. 3, 1672 and proved Aug. 29, 1672, with his estate appraised on Aug. 23, 1672 at over 434, including over 103 in cash, 180 for his house and land, and 20 for a farm at Stoney Brook. Married about 1642.
