One of the features of Maryland property patents is that they were given names. (One of my favorites is "Pig's Misery"). Since it's human nature to be homesick, often names in the 'New World' were names from 'home'. It turns out that William Mills of Maryland named his major pieces of property -- Trenant, Dunbar, and Haddington, for places not just in Scotland generally, but in East Lothian, Scotland, specifically. Why would someone who grew up in Sussex, England, name his property -- consistently -- for places in East Lothian, Scotland?.
