1741--June 4 The election poll to elect burgesses from Orange County to the Virginia House of Burgesses resulted in charges against John Rucker and others being for "great Misdemeanours and Breaches of the Privileges of this House."
--November 20 Mr. Conway reported to the House of Burgesses: "That as soon as the Poll was opened, John MacCoy, Honorious Powell, John Snow, and Timothy Terrill and several others, throng'd into the Court house in a riotous Manner, and made such a Disturbance, that the Sheriff and Candidates were obliged to go out of the Court-house 'til the House was clear'd, and the People appeas'd; and that the Said Mr. Chew, whist he was on the Bench, called for a Bowl of Punch and had it brought to him, upon which, the Sheriff stay'd the Poll, and said he would not have any Punch drank on the bench, but wou'd have a fair Election; in which Mr. Chew replied, he would have Punch and drink it, and that the Sheriff should not hinder him. That as soon as the Tumults were appeas'd, the Candidates and Sheriff return'd into the Court-house and proceeded in taking the Poll; Mr. Jonathan Gibson and John Newport, the Under-Sheriff, at their Desire and Permission, standing at each of the Court-house Doors, with drawn Swords across the Doors, in order to let the Voters Pass in and out quietly and regularly in their polling. That after the Under Sheriff was placed at the Door, one Mr. John Rucker came to the Door and demanded Entrance; which he had; and then the said Rucker threw the Under-Sheriff and another Person headlong out of the Doors; and when the Under sheriff recovered his Post, the said Rucker insisted to clear the Doors, so that everyone might have free Entrance and seized the Under-Sheriff's Sword with both his Hands endeavouring to break it, which the Under-Sheriff prevented by drawing it through his Hands. That then one John Burk came to the said Ruckers Assistance and laid violent Hold on the Under-Sheriff, who was rescued by the Bystanders. It also appeared to the Committee, that the said John Rucker, before and during the Time of the Election, give several large Bowls of Punch among the People, crying out for those Persons who intended to vote for Mr. Slaughter to come and drink of his Punch and that after the Election was over, Rucker confessed he had won several Pistoles, upon Mr. Slaughter's being elected the first Burgess."
--June 2 House of Burgesses set aside the election of Mr. Slaughter of Orange County. They found "Mr. Richard Winflow, Sheriff of the County of Orange, John Rucker, John Burk, John MacCoy, Honorius Powell, John Snow and timothy Terrill are guilty of great Misdemeanours and Breaches of the Privileges of this House. Ordered that the said Richard Winflow, John Rucker, John Burk, John MacCoy, Honorius Powell, John snow and timothy Terrill be sent for, in Custody of the Serjeant at Arms" and ordered a new election in Orange County.
--June 19 John Rucker, John MacCoy, Honorius Powell and Timothy Terrell gave a petition to the house stating they had surrendered themselves to the Sergeant at Arms and were sorry for their offenses, and that their future behavior would not cause offense to the House. The House then Ordered that the mem be brought to the Bar of the House where the Mr. Speaker said: "John Rucker, John MacCoy, Honorius Powell, and Timothy Terrill, This House have Resolved That you have been guilty of great Misdemeanours and Breeches of the Privileges of this House in obstruction the Orange Election. But in Consideration of your Confession and Submission, they have been favourable to you, as to command me only to reprimand you; and I do reprimand you accordingly. And I am further to acquaint you That it is their Pleasure that you be discharged out of Custody, paying fees." (Source: Journals of the House of Burgesses of Virginia 1742-1747)
