Abraham Piersey

In 1639 the accumulated wealth was comparatively small. Sir John Harvey stated that Virginia at this time consisted of very poor men. The largest estate belonged to Abraham Piersey whose occupation as a Cape Merchant had provided considerable advantage, although most of his wealth had probably been gotten in England.
