Notes

Isaac was born in the Ensign house in Scituate. [7]

Dr. Isaac, the first regular bred physician who settled in Scituate, and to whom the Town 'Voted a settlement of £100 to encourage him to remain in the Town,' in 1719. “He is remembered by some of our aged people as a gentleman of uncommon accomplishments of person and of mind.” [6]

He purchased first a property on what is now called Old Oaken Bucket Road, near Greenbush Village, known as the ‘widow Nichols property,’ near George Moore’s bridge. He lived there until 1723, when he bought of Joseph Nash the house near Stony Cove Brook, built by him in 1700. There was an exchange of properties at this time, Joseph Nash taking title to the larger estate, and Dr. Otis, the smaller, which was more desirable situated for a doctor, being located on the main highway leading to the ‘up river settlement.’ [7]
