Did this bean cross the Atlantic?

Found recently on a Dorset shore, a rather delightful 
specimen of the tropical bean, Mucuma urens.  Can anyone 
tell me anything about the plant this came from, where it 
might have started its journey, how long it might have been 
at sea and is it worth planting?
