Anthony Johnson was an Angolan 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. Notably, he was the first to hold a black African servant as a slave in the mainland American colonies. Upon his death in 1670 a court ruled that he was "a negro and by consequence, an alien", and the colony seized his land.
