vocabulary problem

Classification: Query
In an 1842 will, James Anderson states "I bequeth to my beloved wife the plantation in which we now live"

Is the word "plantation" an Irish term or an PA/VA term?

I thought I had seen the term in Irish books???

I had thought my James Anderson Irish like his wife. However, my brother swears he has roots in Virgina.

Thank you for any suggestions.
