Jealousy is estate 17 in St. Croix’s Prince’s Quarter. Based on appearances on historic maps, the windmill was likely built in the 1750s. The windmill was blocked to store water after decommissioning. The inscription stone over the juice trough opening says Amen Angel 1876. The windmill tower is partly collapsed.
Sugar cultivation came relatively early to estate Jealousy, with the 1750 map indicating sugar cultivation and an animal mill. By the second Beck printing, sails added to the animal mill indicate a windmill.
The 1799 Oxholm map shows a windmill. The 1856 Parsons map depicts a windmill along with a tower without sails. The 20th century topographic maps all show ruins identifiable as a windmill.
The 1750 map attributed ownership to Soren Reigg, which may be a spelling variation for the ownership noted on the Beck variants from 1766-1791, Sören Bagge. By 1790 ownership transitioned to MacDonough.
McGuire geographic dictionary of the Virgin Islands (p.100) notes the connection of estates 16 and 17 into Jealousy. Later, combined with estates Mt. Pleasant (not specifying which one) and Glynn becoming part of the larger Lucas sugar plantation.
