Friday's Faces From the Past - Sir John Pettus

Having posted a portrait of Sir John Pettus on Wednesday, I thought it might be fun to see this copper engraving of him as well.

Sir John PETTUS was born 1550 in Norfolk, England to Thomas PETTUS [who served as both sheriff and mayor of Norwich] and Christian DETHICK. He married Bridget CURTIS [daughter of Augustine CURTIS].
The couple had at least two sons: Sir Augustine PETTUS and Thomas PETTUS.
Sir John PETTUS was knighted by Queen Elizabeth I.
He is Texican's 11th great-grandfather.
