About Damaris Page

Parents: William or Samuel Shattuck (1584-1637/1641) and Damaris Shattuck (b. ca.1597-1674)


Damaris Shattuck, born Abt. 1635 in England; died Abt. 1680 in Albemarle Co., VA; married Isaac Page July 30, 1653 in Boston, Suffolk Co., MA. ----Savage

Damaris was probably the sister of Samuel Shattuck of Salem, Massachusetts, who in 1659, along with others including Nicholas Phelps (another of our ancestors) were banished under pain of death. Shattock had a sister, Mary Hamor, who petitioned the general court to be permitted to meet him when he was taken to Boston so she could take him to Rev. Mr. Norton's house for his conversion. The sentence of banishment was pronounced and they were given two weeks (until June 8th) to settle their affairs. Two years later Samuel Shattuck and Nicholas Phelps sailed to England to petition parliament to help the Quakers. They returned to New England, but Mr. Phelps, being weak in body died soon after[4]. 

From Find A Grave Memorial# 140867719

Isaac Page married Damaris Shattuck in Boston, Massachusetts on 30 July 1653 or 30 September 1653. Being a Quaker in Puritan Massachusetts, she suffered for her faith and moved to North Carolina for a more tolerant religious environment.

Known children of Isaac Page and Damaris Shattuck Page:

  • 1) Damaris Page married first to John Moris (Morrison), and second to Henry White.
  • 2) Elizabeth Page married Zacharias Nixon.
  • 3) Mary Page listed as undated headright to North Carolina, but not listed in her father's will in 1680.

Isaac Page only lists daughters Damaris and Elizabeth in his will.

Internet research say from other researchers say that Isaac and Damaris had a son named John, but no further information is known of this son.

A headright is a legal grant of land to settlers. Headrights are most notable for their role in the expansion of the thirteen British colonies in North America. Headrights were issued in North Carolina between 1663 and 1744. (Source: North Carolina Headrights, A List of Names, 1663-1774. Compiled by Caroline B. Whitley and Wikipedia.)
