"Lieut. Isaac BUCK, Blacksmith.". "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."

Buck, Isaac:
"Isaac Buck was in Scituate no later than 1643. In 1650 he accused John Hewes of stealing four hoes from him (PCR 2:160). On 4 October 1655 the General Court noted that the members of the train band at Scituate had carried themselves unworthily "in that they voted for divers unmeet persons" to be sergeants, and demoted to a sergeant the ensign earlier assigned by the court, and therefore the court ordered them to choose fit sergeants and warned them against any such other "contempt of the govment." Isaac Buck, the clerk of the band, was charged with unworthily demeaning himself and was required to make a public announcement of the fact at the head of the company; on the same day he was fined twenty shillings for refusing to shoe horses to be used by a United Colonies commissioner from New Haven, but the following year the fine was remitted (PCR 3:89-90, 106). Buck was made a freeman in 1658, and in the same year he was a constable for Scituate (PCR 3:136-37). In 1659 the Court of Assistants noted complaints against him by Constant Southworth and Nathaniel Morton for not paying charges due for the "majestrates table" (that is, their meals), and for Morton's wages, and now he was ordered to pay these charges (PCR 3:161). On 1 March 1669/70 Sgt. Isaac Buck was approved by the court as the lieutenant of the Scituate military company (PCR 5:33). In Scituate he was often elected a deputy to the court, a selectman, and town clerk (PCR 4, 5, and 6, passim; MD 1:233, 19:62), holding the latter office until he died in 1695, when he must have been quite old."

"His wife was Frances _____, who along with their son Isaac, Jr. was among the heirs in 1672 of Esther Woodfield, widow of John Woodfield (MD 17:156, 19:62). Isaac Buck died intestate in 1695, leaving his wife Frances and nine children: Isaac, Joseph, Jonathan, Thomas, Benjamin, James, Elizabeth Whitcomb, Ruth Garrett, and Deborah Merritt (TAG 24:104). The TAG article, by Mrs. John E. Barclay, also shows that Abigail, the wife of Nathaniel Harlow, and Mary, the wife of Allerton Cushman, were daughters of Thomas Buck, the son of Isaac and Frances Buck."

Part One: Chronological Histories; Chapter 6: King Philip's War (1675-1676):

"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 £2/1 for William Hatch to £10 for Lt. Isaac Buck. Capt. Roger Goulding of Rhode Island, who had proved to be a constant and real friend in the late war, on 1 November 1676 was awarded 100 acres of land, and on the same day David Lake and Thomas Lake, who had been very useful and of much service to the colony, were given 100 acres, with David, who "hath bine most healpfull," getting sixty, and Thomas the rest. Captain Benjamin Church was commissioned as a magistrate. In the race among the colonies to take over Indian lands, Plymouth won the Mount Hope peninsula, which became known as Bristol, and Captain Church became the new town's deputy. In 1682 the court was still giving out awards, such as £4/4 to Capt. John Williams for his services in the late war, and Mr. William Clarke, who lost his wife and child at Eel River, was given the contract to supply food and lodging for the magistrates at £40 yearly."
