Hey nice name!
I am also Darren Shutt, I was surprised to find someone with my name. Our family has traced the Shutt, formerly spelled Schutte, line back about 200 years to Germany. My grandfather was Claude Burton Porter Shutt and his father was William Lyman Shutt. My grandfather was born in Peabody Kansas. If you think there is a connection, please contact me and I will be happy to help you out.
