George Percy and Jamestown Virginia



George Percy (1580-1632) son of Henry Percy, 8th Earl of Northumberland and Lady Catherine Neville. He married Ann Floyd.

George Percy was one of the wealthy “gentlemen” among the 144 men who settled Jamestown in 1607. He served as president of the colony during the “starving time” of 1609-1610 when more than 400 colonists died, leaving only sixty survivors. He penned "A True

Relation" in 1624, partly to justify his leadership during this period.
