The correct answer is "accusingly". Moreover, I have never heard anyone using the word "accusedly". Does it really exist?? A native speaker can perhaps clarify that... Thanks in advance! ;))

I checked at http://www.dictionary.com and learned that "accusedly" is not a word in English, as you suspected.

According to an American thesaurus accursedly is an adverb but it𠏋 not a word that I know and it𠏋 not in either my Oxford or Cambridge dictionaries.

As far as i m aware in modern day English accusedly doesn t exist. Moreover, i doubt it ever did, so the answer is quite clear, accusingly is correct. I have checked my Websters to find this word, and it isn t in there. This means it never was.
