Bronteor Bronti

Bronte, or Bronti, a market-town in the province of Catania, Sicily, at the foot of Mount Etna. The territory, with the title of duke, was conferred on Lord Nelson by the Neapolitan king in 1799 in return for his services against the French. These descended through Nelson's niece to Lord Bridport, and still are attached to that title. The estates are famous for an excellent growth of wine and for the manufacture of woollen goods and paper.
