The ancestors of the Planter family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Planter is for a gardener as the name was originally derived from the Old English word plant meaning plant, or young tree.

Early Origins of the Planter family


The surname Planter was first found in London where they held a family seat being descended from Fulk, the Count of Anjou, whose descendants were exemplified by the Emperor, Henry V of Germany, and Henry who ascended the English throne and planted the Plantagenet dynasty. He bore the three royal lines which continued until the time of Edward III who added a crest of another lion. The eventual heiress of this house was the Princess Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV, and Queen of Henry VII. Many junior lines abounded.
