About Henry Buck

Henry BUCK was born in 1626 in (Bromland,Somersetshire,England.) He died on 7 July 1712 at the age of 86 in Wethersfield , Hartford, Connecticut.

Elizabeth Churchill married Henry Buck, of Wethersfield, Oct 31, 1660. Mr. Buck was the youngest of two brothers who came to Wethersfield in 1647. He was born in England in 1626, as we learn from the record of his death, July 7, 1712, at the age of eighty-six years. He was granted lands in Wethersfield in 1658, and aquired quite an estate later on, and became a citizen of influence and ability, filling the town offices, and being elected deputy to the General Assembly in 1667.

children were: Mehitable BUCK, Henry BUCK, Samuel BUCK, Martha BUCK, Elizabeth BUCK, Mary BUCK, Sarah BUCK, Ruth BUCK


To my knowledge the parents of Henry BUCK (abt 1626 to 7 Jul 1712) who married Elizabeth CHURCHILL (1642-aft 1730) remain known. Unfortunately there are places such as the LDS Ancestral File and some of the online databases that give highly unreliable information and tend to lead well-meaning people astray.

It is known that Emmanuel/Enoch BUCK and Henry BUCK had a sister Grace BUCK (abt 1623/4-1703) who married John RYLEY or RILEY (d. 1679) abt 1645 and had 8 Ryley children -- John, Joseph, Jonathan, Mary, Grace, Sarah, Jacob and Isaac. The two spellings of the name seem to be used qinterchangeably.

Hopefully, some day, a good researcher will be able to do onsite research in England and find the roots of this interesting family. As I mentioned in another posting this afternoon, Cornelius Harvey writes that he believes this branch may be from County Norfolk in England.
