Re: do the spellings all mean the same?
My ancestor John Crew wrote a will in 1712 in Sussex County Delaware. It was witnessed by Robert Bocher.
I believe the name was Boucher, later it changed to Butcher.
1695 Worcester County Maryland John Rust willed to William and Robert Boucher his property called Westchester.
His name is also called John Ruske. I believe these are the same or sons of the William and Robert Boucher/Butchers in Delaware. Linda
