Cru’soe (A).
 
A solitary man; the only inhabitant of a place. The tale of Defoe is well known, which describes Robinson Crusoe as cast on a desert island, where he employs the most admirable ingenuity in providing for his daily wants.   1
       
“Whence creeping forth, to Duty’s call he yields,
And strolls the Crusoe of the lonely fields.”
       
Bloomfield: Farmer’s Boy.
