Members are lineal descendants of Britons who, from the Interregnum up until the Restoration of the Monarchy, resided in the New World and remained loyal to their Royal Majesties King Charles I and his son and successor, King Charles II, and who held claims during the "Cavalier" ancestor's lifetime to not less than 1,000 acres of land. Rebuttable presumptions are that those living in Virginia, Barbados and other British Sugar Islands in the Caribbean were Cavaliers, and hence, loyal, and that those living in New England were not. The ancestor must have held claim to not less than 1,000 acres of land. Membership is by invitation only.
