They played various roles in the early years of the colony, including leadership positions and contributing to the survival and development of the settlement. Chief Powhatan, on the other hand, was the leader of the Powhatan Native American tribe and interacted with the Jamestown settlers but was not one of the gentlemen mentioned in the list.
