Dna testing links to descendants of George Pace (Christened 1670, Prees, Shropshire, England, died 1738 Shareshill, Staffordshire, England) and his brother, John Pace (Christened 1665, Wrockwardine, Shropshire, England, who is believed to have emigrated to Middlesex, VA, and died there 1720).

So far no Pace-Percy connections have been found, but the timing suggests they would be in England, through George or possibly earlier.
