Kay, could it be Richard Scotton? I have seen that name in Queen Anne's County deeds, but don't remember now the dates. Look at this link: http://tinyurl.com/ch2ufenhttp://tinyurl.com/ch2ufen
That is a MD Archives website for the Patent Index. Click on S, then click on the .pdf with the name Scrotton in it. There are several entries for Richard Scotten. This may not be the same man as Richard Scott, but I thought it worth a mention.
I am still searching for my William Scott QA County MD > Anson Co.NC > Burke Co.GA.
