The name Shattuck is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived at Chaddock, a hamlet in the parish in Lancashire. It is from the place-name that the surname is derived.

Shattuck Early Origins



The surname Shattuck was first found in Lancashire at Chaddock, an estate in the township of Tyldesley, in the parish of Leigh. "Chaddock Hall was in possession of a family of that name in the early part of the last century [(18th century)]" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
Listings of the family in various rolls include: Daniel Chaddocke who was listed in the Preston Guild Rolls in 1682; Ann Chaddock, of West Leigh, 1607 and Peter Chaddock, of Prescot, 1613; both listed in the Wills at Chester. The same rolls also listed John Cheydock, of Cheydock. The Lancashire Inquisitions listed John Chadocke, of Chadocke, Lancashire, 1610. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
And many years later, Thomas Chadeck was listed in Yorkshire in 1704. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)

One source claims there may be a relationship with the Chadwick surname as seen by the following entry: John Chadwikke alias Chaddokke who was listed in Nottinghamshire in 1554. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
Yet another source disagrees: "Not to be confounded with Chadwick, as is done in the Index to the Preston Guild Rolls." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)

To add to the confusion, Chadwick is a surname frequented to Lancashire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire name. Chadwick is "a hamlet and manor, in the parish and union of Bromsgrove, Upper division of the hundred of Halfshire, Droitwich and E. divisions of the county of Worcester." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Shattuck Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Shattuck family name include Chadock, Chaddock, Chaddoch, Chadoch, Chaddocke and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Shattuck surname or a spelling variation of the name include :
