Samuel Rusco had a warrant for five hundred acres of land in Berkley County South Carolina August 17, 1710 ("Warrants for Land in South Carolina 1672-1711 by Sally and Olsberg, University of S.C. Press 1973, page 659).
Samuel Ruscoe was granted five hundred and fifty eight acres in Berkley County S.C. July 23, 1711 ("Royal Grants Vol. 39, pp 127, 386, 387. S.C. State Archives).
Samuel Ruscoe's will (Charleston Wills, Inventories, and Misc. Records 1714-1717 pp 8-11).
Mortage of Slaves by Samuel Ruscoe 1726 (Charleston Wills, Inventories, and Misc. Records 1726-1727, Book A pp 262-263)
Samuel Rusko is listed on the petit Jury in 1720 and as Samuel Rusco on the St. Paul Prish Petit Jury in 1731 ( South Carolina Jury Lists 1718-1783 by Mary Bandurant Warren, Heritage Papers Press, Danielville, Ga. 1977, page 104).
Samuel Rescue is names in a suit where John Kineard vs Mathew Beard over land in Goose Creek Parish, Berkler County in October of 1715. Also Samuel Ruscoe vs Alexander Trench (South Carolina Chancery Court Records 1671-1779 pp 122, 323, 324).

Who was this Samuel Ruscoe. Is he the same Samuel Ruscoe that was earlier in New England or did he come to S.C. directly from England or elsewhere?

Need additional information on this parents, his wife, and any children he may have had.
