While some say she was a Sibley (which appears to come from a 1928, unsourced genealogy), there is no documentation for her maiden name. Nor is there any documented proof of the first name of her Shattuck husband.
The Sibley parents she's been linked to (without proof) include:
Also sometimes said to be daughter of Henry Siblie: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:1:MCCQ-4HQ
Because there is no proof of her ancestry, she is shown here without parents.
"Nothing was found by Lemuel Shattuck to show a proved connection between the main family of his Memorials and the Salem family, nor was he able to state the name of the male progenitor of the Salem family, and it is probably that he never came to America and that his widow Damaris crossed the Atlantic with her children. The name Shattuck has been found in the marriage register of the church at Dorchester, Dorset, and the Pope family probably also came from that county.
Shortly later, Damaris married Captain Thomas Gardner as his second wife.
Damaris is mentioned in the 1668 will of her 2nd husband (Thomas Gardner), but she predeceased him.
Damaris Gardner died at Salem on 28 Nov 1674.
Her husband died in 1677.
The following is a tentative list, order unknown, of the Shattuck children of Damaris the elder:"
Note that two of her Shattuck daughters married their Gardiner step-brothers.
