The website lists the colonies in the same order as their founding, starting with the colony of Jamestown (later, Virginia).

About.com provides a chart naming the colonies in order of founding, their founders, and the year they became official royal colonies. Not all of the 13 were royal colonies. Royal colonies were ruled by royally appointed governors; other colonies had other systems of government in place.
