From Burke's: "George; b 4 Sept 1580; soldier Low Countries; sailed in first settlement of Virginia of JAMES I's reign Dec 1600, an incorporator of Second Co of Virginia 1609 and Dep Govr following John Smith's recall to England 1609-10 and later March-May 1611, memb Cncl of Virginia 1610, returned to Europe 1612 and soldiered in Low Countries against Spaniards 1625-27; d 1632."1

; per Hoskins email: [quote] "George Percy, after the Earl the ablest of the seven brothers, was born in 1580. He saw some service in the Low Countries (probably in the company of Northumberland and Raleigh), and in December 1606 sailed for Virginia with the first American expedition of James I's reign. On May 23, 1609, his name occurs in the list of incorporators of the second company of Virginian adventurers. His first intention was to have settled down in the Dominion, for he obtained considerable grants of lands (subsequently alienated) and married Anne Floyd, daughter of one of the colonists at Jameston [sic]. In August 1609 Gabriel Aucher describes him as one of 'the respected gentlemen of Virginia.' In the quarrel between the adventurers and Captain John Smith, Percy sided with the former; and after Smith's recall in 1609 to answer the charges made against him, Percy was made Deputy-Governor. On June 12, 1610, he became a member of the Council under the new Governor, Delawarr, and in 1611 again was Deputy-Governor. Acting in this capacity he exchanged gifts with 'the great sachem Powhatan,' father of Pocahontas. His expenditure at this time proved larger than his income, for on August 17, 1611, he wrote a letter to his eldest brother, the Earl, apologizing for having overdrawn his allowance to the extent of L 432. 1s. 6d. It was necessary, he explained, to 'keep a good table' at Jamestown, where foods and wines were very costly. Northumberland paid the debt, but apparently advised his brother to return to England; and on April 12, 1612, Percy resigned his office, disposed of whatever goods he owned, and left Virginia. In London, he acted for some time as agent for the Virginia adventurers opposed to John Smith. When Smith published his 'General History,' Percy wrote in reply, 'A True Relation of the Proceedings and Occurrents of Moment which happened in Virginia from...1609 until ...1612.' In this he accuses Smith of being a braggart and a slanderer, and sets forth at length the various grievances of the settlers. A second work followed of more permanent value, entitled 'A Discourse of the Plantation of the Southern Colony of Virginia.' This tract was republished by both Hakluyt and Purchas. Percy's restless nature forbade that he should remain long inactive, and about 1625 he entered the service of the United Provinces as a volunteer. He had a finger shot off in one engagement (1627), and for some time commanded a company with distinction. His death occurred in 1632, a few months after that of Northumberland; and he does not appear to have left any children by his wife, Anne Floyd [footnote # 1: This, however, is not absolutely certain. Ann Floyd remained behind in America after her husband's return to England.]" [Brenan, _The House of Percy_ (London, 1902), 2:208-9]. [end quote]6

;
From Wikipedia: George Percy
     "The Honorable George Percy (4 September 1580 – in or after 1627) was an English explorer, author, and early Colonial Governor of Virginia.
Early life
     "George Percy was born in England, the youngest son of Henry Percy, 8th Earl of Northumberland and Lady Catherine Neville. He was sickly for much of his life, possibly suffering from epilepsy or severe asthma. He graduated from Oxford University in 1597. While at university, he gained admission to Gloucester Hall and the Middle Temple.
     "Percy's vocation was the military. His first service came in the Dutch struggle for independence from Spain in the early 1600s. He also served in Ireland.
Life in Virginia
     "Percy was part of the first group of 105 English colonists to settle the Jamestown Colony. He departed England in December 1606 and kept a journal of his voyage. He arrived in Virginia in April 1607 and recorded the struggles of the colonists to cope with the American environment, disease, and the Powhatan Native Americans. "Thus we lived for the space of five months in this miserable distress," he wrote in his journal, "not having five able men to man our bulwarks upon any occasion."[1]
     "Although Percy had a higher social rank than all of the other first colonists, he was initially denied a seat on the Virginia Council. Nevertheless, he took the lead in the early life of the colony, taking part in the expedition to the James River falls in May and June 1607. In autumn 1607, he sided with the President of the colony, Edward Maria Wingfield, who was subsequently deposed by John Ratcliffe, Gabriel Archer, and John Smith. From late 1607 until autumn 1609, Percy had little power in Jamestown but served as Smith's subordinate.
     "When Smith left the colony in September 1609, Percy assumed the presidency of the colony. However, his persistent illness kept him from executing his office, leaving the duties of the presidency to Ratcliffe, Archer, and John Martin. It was during Percy's tenure that the colony suffered through the "Starving Time" in the winter of 1609–10. "Now all of us at James Town beginning to feel that sharp prick of hunger, which no man truly describe but he which hath tasted the bitterness thereof," he recounted later.[2] Percy accomplished little while President, other than to order to construction of Fort Algernon at Old Point Comfort. When Sir Thomas Gates arrived in May 1610, Percy happily surrendered control of the colony to him.
     "In June 1610, Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr arrived in Jamestown and with a commission to serve as the colony's governor. De la Warr appointed Percy to the council and named him captain of the Jamestown fort. In August 1610, De la Warre sent Percy and seventy men to attack the Paspahegh and Chickahominy Indians. The force ravaged the Indians' settlements, burning their buildings, decimating their crops, and indiscriminately killing men, women, and children. Percy also led the successful defence of the Jamestown fort against an Indian attack and earned the praise of De La Warr. When the Governor returned to England in March 1611, he appointed Percy to lead the colony in his absence. "But the winds not favoring them, they were enforced to shape their course directly for England—my lord having left and appointed me deputy governor in his absence, to execute martial law or any other power and authority as absolute as himself."[3] Percy's term as Governor lasted until April 22, 1612, when he departed for England.
After Virginia
     "After his service as Virginia colony governor, Percy returned to England but remained interested in colonization schemes. In 1615, he proposed an expedition to Guiana but found no supporters. In 1620, he sold his four shares in the Virginia Company and returned to military service. Percy returned to the Netherlands in 1621 when war between Spain and the Dutch resumed. He was the commander of a company in the Low Countries in 1627.
Marriage
George Pe     "rcy married Anne Floyd.[4]. The couple had one daughter, Anne Percy, who married Governor John West.

Burke's shows Barbara's parents to be Watler (1st Viscount Hereford) and Lady Mary (Grey) DEVEREUX. However, Genealogics makes her the dau. of Sir William and Jane (Scudamore) DEVEREUX. I have chosen to follow the Genealogics ancestry.1
