   Plantation owners and Presidents of the United States of America : Thomas Jefferson  

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was the son of a prominent landowner Colonel Peter Jefferson (1708-1757), who accumulated 7'000 acres in Albemarle County, Virginia. Jefferson's mother was Jane Randolph (1720-1776), daughter of Isham Randolph of Dungeness plantation, making Thomas Jefferson a member of the prominent Randolph family of Virginia. From these origins, Thomas Jefferson started in life with the clear advantage of a Southern aristocrat, which left him essentially free of material concerns and enabled him to dedicate his energies to higher objectives
