Bryan County was created on 19 December 1793, named after Jonathan Bryan (1708-1788), an American Revolutionary War partisan. South Bryan County is home to the earthen Civil War installation Ft. McAllister (now Fort McAllister Historic Park) which Gen. William Sherman captured on his March to the Sea. The first county seat was in Hardwick. In 1860 the seat was moved to Eden, Georgia. By 1901 it was in Clyde, Georgia, which may have been the same location formerly known as Eden. Clyde served as the seat to 1935; in 1937 Pembroke took on that role. The move from Clyde to Pembroke was necessitated by the establishment of Camp Stewart (now Fort Stewart) on the site of Clyde. The only remaining sign of Clyde is a cemetery on the military reservation.

The information in this volume is collected and abstracted from Deed Books A-D. Hundreds of very early records found and recorded from 1796 until 1828. Included are the lists of the first Jurors selected as found in loose papers.
