Princess Pocahontas (c.1596-1617) was a Native American, associated with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. She married tobacco planter, Jon Rolfe. They visited England, where she became a celebrity, but died at Gravesend on the return journey. This bronze statue, cast from the original by William Ordways Partridge of 1922 in Jamestown, was presented to the British people by the Governor of Virginia and unveiled in 1958. It is listed Grade II.
