St. George's (formally, the Town of St. George, or St. George's Town), located on the island and within the parish of the same names, settled in 1612, is the first permanent English (and later British) settlement on the islands of Bermuda. It is often described as the third successful British settlement in the Americas, after St. John's, Newfoundland, and Jamestown, Virginia and the oldest continuously-inhabited British town in the New World, since the other two settlements were seasonal for a number of years.

Bermudian convention, where a toponym contains the name of a person, is to render the person's name in the possessive form. The place is rarely treated as equivalent to the person.
