I just spoke with Donald "Hardy" Nelthropp who said that he knew your branch well hat they left St Croix for Puerto Rico in the 1940s. The Cattle herd described further down this page was founded by your ancestors and bought out by his. Bromley was the founder he had several children one of whom Louis went to Puerto Rico with his children which included Ray. There was another son who moved to St Thomas and some are still there. This is an interesting example of chain migration. The von Bithorns moved first in the last century remaining in touch with the family then Louis who was followed by his cousin Hardys brother ___ who went in the late 1950s and lived at Aguadilla for many years before moving back.

Their father Albert Nelthropp who worked at Cruzan Rum and then bought it was rancher Bromley Nelthropps brother.
Their branch now owns the cattle operation and some members still work for the distillery which now belongs to Todhunter.

Bromley Nelthropp was the brother of my grandfather Albert Victor Nelthropp. Albert V. Nelthropp had seven children, Albert Meyer, Helen, Cedric, Willing(my father), Alice Beatrice, Henry, Douglas Bromley, and Donald. Therefore Bromley was Donald and Cedric's uncle.
Bromley and Albert were two of thirteen children. Their father was Henry Christian Nelthropp, planter, proprietor of Estate Canegarden. Henry Christian's wife was Maria Angelique Bithorn of German ancestry. Henry Christian was born in Denmark.

I am interested in the Nelthropp/Meyer connection. I note that Meyer is listed as the middle name of Albert Nelthropp in your posting.

I am told that my grandmother, Vivienne Eagan BROWN Frederiksen aka "Miss Vivy", always said we were related to the Nelthropps, but never said how.

Miss Vivy's great-grandmother was Elizabeth MEYER b. ca. 1787. Elizabeth was a slave owned by John and Jane MEYER and was given (not sold) her freedom in 1804; she was also apparently related by blood to the MEYERs. Several of her known children were given family names of the MEYERs and Jane MEYER was listed as sponsor (godmother) to all of Elizabeth's children for whom baptism records were found.

We are also related to the WESCOTTS (Rachel aka 'Rachie' and Mary) who also have a connection to the MEYERs.

My lineage from Elizabeth MEYER is as follows:

Elizabeth MEYER
I b. ca. 1787
I d. after 1870
Abraham Christian MEYER [CHITTENDON]
I b. ca. 1815
I d. 1881
Mary MEYER Brown
I b. 12JAN1852
I d. 08DEC1906
Vivienne Eagan BROWN Frederiksen
I b. 22FEB1879
I d. 05OCT1955
I Still living

Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thank you.
