Josceline (or Joceline) Percy, 11th Earl of Northumberland, 5th Baron Percy (4 July 1644–Turin, 31 May 1670) was an English peer.[1]

Percy was the eldest son of Algernon Percy, 10th Earl of Northumberland and his second wife, Elizabeth Howard, daughter of Theophilus Howard, 2nd Earl of Suffolk. He served as a Page of Honour at the coronation of Charles II of England on 23 April 1661 and became a member of the Inner Temple on 4 November of that same year.[1]

On 23 December 1662, he married Lady Elizabeth Wriothesley (the third daughter and co-heiress of Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton)[1] and they had two children:

In 1668, Henry inherited his father's titles and estate.[1] Upon Henry's death in 1670 without a male heir, the Earl's titles became extinct and his estate passed to his only daughter, Elizabeth.
