Although the pose is the same, the picture of Sir John Pettus in Pocahontas Stacy's book is apparently an engraved copy of the original portrait displayed in St. Andrew's Hall in Norwich. In the engraving, Sir John has a rather benign expression, but the portrait portrays him with a rather stern expression.
By the way, you can find a picture of Sir William Berkeley, governor of Virginia when Thomas Pettus was on the Council of State in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, 109: 18. The portrait was painted in 1661-1662, when Thomas was at the end of his tenure on the council, but Thomas may have dressed in a similar style.
