Wyatt, SIR FRANCIS, governor ; born in England, presumably in 1575; made governor of Virginia in 1621; brought with him a new constitution which allowed trial by jury, annual meetings of the Assembly subject to the call of the governor, and all former franchises and immunities. This constitution became the model for all later forms of government in the American colonies. He returned to England in 1642, and died in Bexley in 1644.
