Because there is sufficient information suppplementing some BIBLE records of Newberry County, South Carolina, the results of additional research follows.

There were several land transactions between the Horseys and Hoggs in the fork of Broad River near Second Creek, and area later to become known as Dutch Forks, a Quaker settlement. Daniel Horsey was granted land there in 1756 and Isaac wasn't far behind him. The Hogg family was from the Dutch Quaker settlement near Wincester, Virginia.

The Proprietors of South Carolina appointed Samuel Horsey to be Governor in 1726, not knowing that the handwriting was on the wall for their removal before Samuel could ever take charge of his appointment.(SOURCE: Calendar of State Papers - America and the West Indies, 1726-1727 as published in London, England in 1936 under the direction of one Cecil Headlam, M.A.)

Samuel became a Colonel, then a Lt. General and was appointed by H.M. to be Governor of South Carolina. Acting Governor William Bull read his appointment to the South Carolina House of Commons Assembly on September 18, 1738, not knowing that Governor Horsey had died on or before August 19, 1738. (Sources: Cal. of State Papers as above (except 1738) and The Colonial Records of South Carolina, Journal of the Commons House of Assembly 1736-1739.) But prior to his death, four Royal "precepts" were issued totaling 48,000 acres (75 square miles) on the Savannah River for the Horsey Barony. All four were handled by William Stephens, the Elder, Attorney of the Isle of Wight, South Hampton County, Virginia, before he became director of the Trustees of Colony of Georgia.

Does this tie Samuel to Stephen Horsey of Somerset County, Maryland ? Other documents stated that Samuel died with a family, including a grown son. (In America, books have been published from the Journals of William Stephens, which I hope others will obtain and continue the enlightenment process.)(Obviously, Samuel Horsey was "connected" in H. M. Court and now that a time frame has been established, hopefully, both sides of the Atlantic can find more reason for shared commonality.)
