To answer your question, yes, those surnames are all interchangeable.
The confusion about the surname is owed to the fact that LANTHROP and
LANTHROPE are pronounced "LAN-TRIP" in England.
My PHILLIPS family was in Prince George County in the early 1700s, and
they were neighbors of the LANTHROPE/LANTRIP/LANTHROP family there.
Among the families living on Second Swamp in Prince George Couty were:
PHILLIPS, LANTHROP and LEDBETTER. All of them go back to the early 1700s in
Prince George and on Second Swamp.
Thanks for posting that message.
