    • "Lieut. Isaac BUCK, Blacksmith was a brother of John, and was in Scituate before 1647. He purchased the house of Jeremiah BURROUGHS, which had been that of Resolved WHITE at Belle house neck. In 1660, he built a house near the Harbour, on the Buck field, so called even now. The house of Anthony WATERMAN, lately deceased, occupies the spot. He was a very useful man, often engaged in publick business, and the Clerk of the Town for many years. He was a Lieut. in Philip's War, and repulsed the Indians with great bravery from Scituate in March 1676. He died intestate 1695. Commissioners divided his estate as follows: "To Frances the widow the house in which she now lives. To Thomas, the land where his house stands. To the heirs of the second son James, & c. To Joseph - to Jonathan and Benjamin, (sons of Lieut. B.) To Elizabeth, wife of Robert WHITCOMB To Mehitabel, wife of Stephen CHITTENDEN To Ruth, wife of Joseph GARRETT, and Deborah wife of Henry MERRITT."Beside these children there is a son Isaac amongst the baptisms: but he may have died early. A son John is also incidentally mentioned in other records. He left a son Dea. Isaac, who was the last of the name in Scituate. He lived at the northeast of Hoop-pole hill, thirty rods south of late Judge Nathan CUSHINGS's residence. He deceased more than seventy-five years since." - History of Scituate, Massachusetts, From It's First Settlement to 1831
      The colony's soldiers were rewarded with land, as had been promised by the court. On 10 March 1675/76 the court observed that soldiers sent out on the first expedition had been promised money or land, and, there being no money, certain tracts of land valued at £1,000 would be given them. On 21 July 1676 a list of names of twelve men from Scituate was approved by the Council of War to receive lands ranging in value from £21 for William Hatch to £10 for Lt. Isaac Buck." - Plymouth Colony: Its History and People 1620-1691
