Descendants of

Isaac PAGE and Damaris Shattuck

 

 First Generation

      1. Isaac PAGE was born about 1620 probably in England. He died[1] on 4 Jul 1680 in Pasquotank County, North Carolina. Isaac married[2] Damaris SHATTUCK, daughter of Daniel SHATTUCK and Damaris, on 30 Sep 1653 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Damaris was born about 1630. Isaac and Damaris were married by William Hibbins. Isaac "died at a good old age".  His tombstone reads: "Bearing a faithful testimony for the truth till his death".

            Isaac had a daughter Elizabeth who married Zachariah Nixon. I read one place that in Isaac's will he states that unless Elizabeth marries a Quaker she will not inherit. However, In the introduction of Pasquotank Monthly Meeting it says that he provides for Elizabeth if she marries Samuel Hill. It also mentions, daughter, Damaris Moris (sic) and her children. Isaac's will was dated 30 Jun 1680, the executors were Charles Prous and Henry White. Wit: Dorothy Prouse, Demaris Moris and Elizabeth Page.[3]

          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]. 

Isaac and Damaris had the following children:

+          2 F  i.   Damaris PAGE was born about 1659 and died on 12 Nov 1722.

+          3 F ii.   Elizabeth PAGE was born about 1663 and died on 4 Dec 1726.

Will of Henry White, dated 19 Sep 1706 no probate mentions sons: Henry, Arnold, Isack, Robert and John, daughters: Content, Mary and Naomy, wife name not given[8].

John and Damaris had the following children:

             4 F            i.   Elisabeth MORRISON was born about 1679.

Granddaughter Elisabeth Overman. This is a combination of two abstracts, one in Hathaway's Register Vol. 1, No. 2; 186. The original will really needs to be checked because the differences in the abstracts.

                                 Samuel Charles was a justice at court Apr 8 1701. A Samuel Charles appears on the 1720 colonial census in Perquimans County, North Carolina.  There were many men by the name of Samuel Charles in Perquimans County at that time, so it is easy to confuse them.[13]
