n English law. A colony; an original settlement in a new country. See 1 Bl. Comm. 107. In American law. A farm; a large cultivated estate. Used chiefly in the southern states. In North Carolina, “plantation” signifies the land a man owns which he is cultivating more or less in annual crops. Strictly, it designates the place planted; but in wills it is generally used to denote more than the inclosed and cultivated fields, and to take in the necessary woodland, and, indeed, commonly all the land forming the parcel or parcels under culture as one farm, or even what is worked by one set of hands. Stowe v. Davis, 32 N. C. 431.
