The Fannie & Edith was a two masted schooner. It was built in Belfast, but came ashore at Prout's Neck in Scarborough on December 4, 1900. She was returning from Boston, Massachusetts headed for Bangor. On December 4, 1900 the schooner parted cables and was completely at the mercy of the waves and wind. Water had breached the breakwater at Richmond Island and the ship drifted west toward Prout's Neck. It was caught by a wave and landed on the rocks.
