George Percy, one of the original Jamestown settlers and the author of several firsthand accounts of the colony, sits for an oil portrait in this nineteenth-century reproduction of an earlier work dated 1615. Percy served as president of the Council in Virginia from the autumn of 1609 until the spring of 1610, and briefly as deputy governor in 1611.
