(7961)(7962) Hobart Genealogy (528) says he died 15 Jan 1785. He was a Farmer in Pepperell, Middlesex, MA. (7963) Parents: Samuel SHATTUCK and Elizabeth BLOOD.

He married to Lydia HOBART on 28 Dec 1757 in Groton, Middlesex, MA.(7964) (7965)(7966) John settled on the road leading north of the Pepperell meeting house where he later died. Rev Mr. EMERSON, ordained in 1747, described the house as, "a frontier place." IN one of his pastoral visits to John's house, Rev. EMERSON urged John to set up family worship. EMERSON also noted that the house was one of house used as a weapons garrison (108).

Sarah died 6 April 1755 at the age of 37, 27 days after the birth of her seventh child. John married second her cousin, Lydia HOBART (108).

bullet Sergeant John SHATTUCK was born on 11 Feb 1647 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (7969)(7970) (7971)(7972) He Granted land in Groton on 27 Nov 1664 in Groton, Middlesex, MA. (7973)(7974) Although there is no evidence that John ever lived there, after his accidental death, his widow remarried Enosh LAWRENCE and they and his children moved to Groton and probably settled on this property. He served as a Survived attack killing 20 in 36-man company. Drowned in ferry accident on mission in 1675 in King Philip's War (1675-1676). (7975)(7976) In 1675, the King Philip's War broke out in Southern New England and John SHATTUCK was appointed Sergeant under Captain Richard Beers of Watertown. He and 35 other men had proceeded to relieve Hadley in western Massachusetts, but were diverted to Squawkeague (now Northfield) on 4 Sep 1675 upon hearing that it had been attacked. On their way, they were ambushed and overpowered by a large force of Indians and narrowly escaped annihilation. Twenty of the 36 men were murdered, including Captain Beers. John SHATTUCK was among the 16 survivors. As the ranking solider, he endeavored on a perilous journey to Boston to inform the Governor of the encounter. He never made it. Ten days later, on 14 Sep, John at arrived at Charlestown where the Charles River ferry took passengers and cargo to the Bunker hill area of Boston. The ferry, overloaded with horses, men, and freight, sank in the high wind and waves and John drowned. He was 28 years old and the only man killed in the accident. A witness reported that only 15 minutes earlier, John SHATTUCK spoke words to this effect:
"I hear the Marlboro Indians, in Boston in prison, and upon trial for their lives, are likely to be cleared by the court. For my part, I have been lately aboard in the country's service, and have ventured my life for them, and have escaped very narrowly. But if they clear these Indians, they shall hang me up by the neck before I serve them again."
At the time, there was a suspicion by some, such as John SHATTUCK, that the Christianized Indians were conspiring to aid King Phillip, however, SHATTUCK may not have actually spoken these words. This history was recorded by a Mr. Gookin, who not only did not share this suspicion but considered John SHATTUCK's death divine Providence executed upon him. On the other hand, such words are understandable coming from a young man, who had witnessed 20 of his companions killed only 10 days ago (108). He died on 14 Sep 1675 in Boston, Suffolk, MA. (7977)(7978) (7979) Drowned in ferryboat accident 10 days after having survived an attack on his company. He was a Carpenter and, after 1669, Watertown town mill operator (hired by town) in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (7980)(7981) The mill was located just south of town on the road to Newton Corner (aka Newton Center) just past the bridge over the river. He resided middle district of Watertown (called center village in 1907) in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (7982) He owned land in Groton but was not known to have ever lived there (403). Parents: William SHATTUCK and Susanna.

He married to Ruth WHITNEY on 20 Jun 1664 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA.(7983) (7984) (7985)(7986) (7987) In 1664, John inherited lands in Groton, but probably never lived there. John resided in Middle District - what today is the City of Watertown. On June 20 of the same year, John married Ruth Whitney in Watertown, who was the daughter of John Whitney (108).

John's father, William SHATTUCK, one of the first SHATTUCKs in America, died in 1672 a wealthy man. His will is outlined in the Shattuck Memorials. His entire estate was valued at over 434 £. William willed his farm to his sons Philip and William and his house to his sons Benjamin and Samuel. He willed John, however, his first born male child, only 20 £, and that was to be paid to him after his mother's death over four years by his brothers Benjamin and Samuel, who were 10 and 19 years younger than John. Doesn't this seem odd? Was John shortchanged? Was there a reason? Unfortunately, John never collected the money as he was killed in a ferry accident only three years later in 1675.

In 1853, Lemuel SHATTUCK, author of the Shattuck Memorials (108), erected the following memorial to William SHATTUCK outside Watertown on the road to Cambridge just west of Mount Auburn:
"To perpetuate the memory of WILLIAM SHATTUCK, who died in Watertown, Aug 14 1672, aged 50; the progenitor of the families that has borne his name in America.

bullet William SHATTUCK was born in 1621 in England.(8032) (8033) (8034)(8035) The Shattuck Memorials (108) suggests that he may have been born in Lancastershire, Somersetshire, or Berkshire. His father may have died on the voyage or soon after arrival. William may have been the son of widow Damaris SHATTUCK, who was admitted to the Church of Salem in 1641. He may have been the brothe rof Samuel SHATTUCK, born in England in 1620. He emigrated before 1642 to Massachusetts. (7948) Butler (634) says he was in Watertown by about 1640. He Granted a three acres of upland and a one acre home lot at Common Hill near "King's Common" in 1642 in Watertown, Middlesex, MA. (8036)(7948) Watertown is one of the oldest settlements in North America. Watertown and Boston were both colonized in 1630, ten years after Plymouth. In 1642, twelve years after Watertown was settled, William SHATTUCK, then only 20 years old, was granted lands making him one of the original proprietors of Watertown. He He later purchased a house, garden, 30 acres near his estate, a 2nd house, and 2 more farms after 1642 in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony.(8037) He moved in 1652 to Boston, Suffolk, MA.

He later bought 25 acres of upland, 3 acres of swamp, and one-third part of 12 acres meadowland. He bought a farm at Stony Point. He bought dwelling house and farm from Edward Sanderson. A question arose to the title to some parts to it, and the town voted on 27 Dec 1664 that "William SHATTUCK shall enjoy the land he bought from Sanders provided he pay to Sanders twenty bushels of good merchantable Indian corn to spend in his house." On his property were clay pits which were reserved by the town for brick making. The land stayed in the SHATTUCK family for 100 years.
