The First English Settlers of Georgia

The list below includes all 114 of the first English settlers who embarked on the ship Anne for Oglethorpe's new colony of Georgia.  Families are grouped together, with indented entries for wives, children, and servants after the head of household.  It should be remembered that not all these people survived long in the new colony, and some relocated or returned.  The list was extracted from a 1947 article by E. Merton Coulter in the Georgia Historical Quarterly.
