In answer to your question, based only on the information on Andersons' Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, Volume 1, A-B, p448-50. americanancestors.org. This is what I have learned:
William Buck migrated 1635 on the "Increase," first residence was Cambridge. Occupation: Plowwright in England.
Skipping over the Estate details to his administrator: "The inventory of the estate of William Buck, taken 27 January 1657/8 and presented by the administrator, "'Roger Buck, son of ...William Buck,'" [MPR 1:146-47]. (Massachusetts Probate Records)
Anderson, citing Hotten 65, places his birth about 1585 (aged 50 1635)
Death: Cambridge 24 January 1657/8
Marriage: By about 1617 ______ _______. She apparently died by 1635.
CHILD: ROGER, b. about 1617 (aged 18 in 1635 [Hotten 65]); m. by 1642 Susan ______ (eldest known child, Samuel, b. Cambridge 6 February 1642/3 [NEHGR 3:248 (surname incorrectly read as "Burt")]).
COMMENTS: William Buck, aged 50, plowwright, was enrolled at London on 15 April 1635 as a passenger for New England on the Increase, along with Roger Buck, aged 18 [Hotten 65]
Anderson continues, "William Buck was not fully integrated into the communal life of his town or colony. All of his land was on the periphery of the town. There is no evidence that he was a church member or a freeman, or ever held office. He apparently was a widower when he arrived, and does not seem to have married during his twenty years and more in New England."
Keeping the William Buck of Cambridge separate from William and Ruth (Strickland) Buck of Glastonbury, Connecticut, and Berlin, Vermont, I will address the NEHGS editorial and biographic sketch in the next message.
