An Ancient Planter was a colonist in Virginia who migrated before 1616, remained for at least three years and paid their passage. They received the first land grants in Virginia. Although there is no "complete list" of Ancient Planters, the list of "Approved Planters" by The Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters, a lineage society, is probably the most complete list. Those who can prove descent from one of the Approved Planters qualify for membership in The Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters.
