Reading and Plumb pens appear to have been inherited by his nephews. Milborough Scott, born 1772, married George Fletcher Coward in 1800. By 1834, a Walter Scott Coward was co-owner of Reading and Plumb - probably Milborough's son, although no baptism record has been found for him. The other co-owner was Rodolphus Walter Buchanan, son of Walter's other sister Ann (who was born the year after Milbrough and who married Rodoplus Buchanan in St James in 1798.
