    Mercy Ruscoe, born probably about 1610, daughter of Roger Ruscoe of Sawbridgeworth, the testator of 1618, an abstract of whose will has been given above, by his wife Sarah, and probably granddaughter of the Widow Hannah Ruscoe who was buried there 5 Aug. 1634, aged about 80 years. Mercy (Ruscoe) Seamer came with her husband to New England about 1638-9, survived him, and married secondly, 25 Nov. 1655, as his second wife, John Steele of Farmington, Conn., formerly of Hartford, who was secretary of the Colony of Connecticut 1636-1639, and deputy many times between 1639 and 1657, and who died in 1665.
