  • Description
This list of settlers in Georgia up to 1741 is taken from a manuscript volume of the Earl of Egmont, purchased with twenty other volumes of manuscripts on early Georgia history by the University of Georgia in 1947. The 2,979 settlers are listed in alphabetical order, followed by their age, occupation, date of embarcation, date of arrival, lot in Savannah or in Frederica, and (where applicable) "Dead, Quitted, or Run Away." Footnotes give additional information concerning many of the people listed. This volume was published in 1949 to help scholarly research in the history of colonial of Georgia.
