Anthony Johnson (colonist) Biography »
Anthony Johnson was an Angolan African held as an indentured servant by a merchant in the Colony of Virginia in 1620, but later freed to become a successful tobacco farmer and owner of an African slave of his own. However on his death in 1670 a court ruled that he was: "a negro and by consequence, an alien", and the colony seized his land.
