Commonly spoken of by his kinsmen as "William the surveyor." Spent most of his life in Plymouth where he held substantial offices of honor, as well as of labor and trust. He was a selectman for many years, delegate to the Provincial Assembly in 1694, and town treasurer from 1695 to 1704. On June 4, 1707, a portion of the town of Plymouth was set off and incorporated by the name of Plympton, and William Shurtleff was chosen for their first town clerk. He was the first captain of their military company at Plympton. Tradition says he was a wealthy man for the time, built the first wharf in Plymouth, erected the first warehouse, and settled the dispute between Sandwich and Plymouth.
