Will of John Perrey/Perry
PROB 11/155/437
Held at The National ARchives, Kew. Note: John Perry was probably not an "immigrant" to Virginia. He came there in about 1626 or 1627 after James Carter, business partner of John Perry and his brother Richard died. John came to Virginia to oversee their business interests and then died there himself in probably late 1628 or 1629.

His brother was Richard Perry 1580-1650, merchant of London who is mentioned in this will. Richard was married to Dewnes/Duance/Dunes Hicks.
