Perhaps the person who wrote or rewrote this tag, confused "Scotia" with "Scotland". Scotia and the rest of the Canadian Maritimes were considered the down-side of New England, and there was a lot of immigration from the Maritimes in the 1800's. A lot of those Canadian immigrants, were from Revolutionary-War refugee families, that originally lived in New England, (lol)

This tag is obviously mistaken but perhaps there is a thread of truth. Did Edward sail to Scotland during his sailing days? If so then he most surely sailed back aboard the same ship. Maybe he told his young sons of his trip to Scotland, that story was re-told in presenting the model to the society and the result is a little bit of fractured history.
