Gearhead is almost certainly correct in his posting that it is the brakes that are seized. Besides being the only thing that will potentially rust without immersion in water, they can seize on in a short time. The very limited wheel movement is due to the take-up in the epicyclic reduction unit just inside the hub.
Have you checked that the operating arm/s are free? The adjuster pivot bush in the centre of these arms can seize as well. Remove the adjuster nut/s and remove the arm pivot housing.
If the actuator is seized in the 'on' position you might just be able to get a pry bar onto the metal discs to break the rust.
