The term "'Ancient planter'" is applied to anyone who migrated to the Plantation of Virginia, before the "going away" of Sir Thomas Dale [May 1616], paid their passage (which included working off indentures) and remained in virginia for at least three years. They received the first land grants in Virginia.

In genealogy, prestige is accorded the descendants of first immigrants. The following is a list of those recognised by the Order of the Descendants of the Ancient Planters, as of 2004.
