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.

The reason they are in the APPENDIX of the book by Lemuel Shattuck is because there is no proof that Damaris is the mother of William of Watertown.
See the sad story of the different William Shattuck, the shoemaker, who went to New Jersey starting on page 366 of the link above.
See headstone of Damaris's son, Samuel (1620-1689) at http://tinyurl.com/SamuellShattockStone1620-1689
In 1678 Samuel Shattuck was Administrator of Estate of Edward Wharton and stated that he was about 58 years old (backing up the death age of 69 in 1689). He's the one who went to see the King.. He is not the witch trial accuser. That was his son.

We don't know her husband's first name.
The Damaris who was the mother of Damaris Shattuck died 28 Nov 1674. She married 2nd Thomas Gardner.
See page 361 for story of Damaris and her son Samuel (1620-1689) and other known children. Her husband's name still unknown after all this time. No records for their marriage found in England; no baptism records for any of the known children found so far. http://tinyurl.com/ShattuckBook
