Gettin it on!

The Site of Savannah was established and drawn out by General James Oglethorpe. This is the seat of the first English settlement in Georgia. 114 persons came with Oglethorpe on his first voyage and erected huts with saw-palm roofs. Within a year, over one hundred wooden homes were constructed, while vessels transported more settlers. Several parishes governed the area, viz: Christ Church, St. Andrews, and St. Marys. After the Revolutionary War, the parishes were dispensed with as boundaries and counties established. Chatham was named for William Lord Pitt, Earl of Chatham. Many prominent citizens emerged from the first settlers into the settled gentry and poltical figures. During the American Revolution, Loyalists marked as traitors escaped into Florida and to Bermuda where they established plantations. If you have lost someone from this period, that is where to search!

Earliest Settlers: Charles Alexander, Michael Bottomley, Jonathan Clark, Raymond Demere, Thomas Dawson, William Gilbert, John Houstoun, William Jordan, Alexander Lesley, David Montaigut, William Mortimer, John Mackay, Charles Ogilvie, Daniel Pendleton, Augustus Rogers, Richard Seymore, Nicholas Witzen, and Nathaniel Zettler.

  • Public Relief
    During the years of 1741 to 1751 there were many persons who went on "public relief".  Of course, that meant that another burden was placed upon Savannah residents to support the sufferers.  However, everyone did not have a legitimate case. Such was the instance of John Brown, an indigent who applied for relief. The comment entered was "inasmuch as the said Browne is not to be trusted with money to purchase the necessaries of life; but squanders away what he gets in debauchery; it is thought expedient by this Board that an allowance of a two pound loaf of bread…
  • The Malcontents
    The years of 1740 to about 1743 were hardship years to those residing in Savannah.  They were suffering from drought and poverty. The indentured servants were unable to maintain good health in the climate and were a steady stream of run-aways.  Too, there existed a group of persons called "malcontents" in Savannah who complained about everything and refused to work. The following colonists ran away from the colony, usually due to poverty, debts, or laziness. Some of them returned, but most of the run-aways went to Charleston, South Carolina. Thus, if you did not find them in Georgia, Charleston…
  • Observations of William Bartram
    William Bartram, explorerThe mulberry trees was grown by ancient civilizations and used for their delicious berry fruits and the green leaves which were eaten by livestock. In the Orient, the leaves were used to fatten silkworms, a prosperous trade. During 1733 General Oglethorpe imported 500 white mulberry trees to Fort Frederica in Georgia to encourage silk production.  Later on, when William Bartram, the famous explorer and botanist, came to America, he noted in his book Travels, page XC, that “Every landowner was required by law to grow silkworms and produce silk, but only a colony of Germans at Ebenezer, (Georgia),…
  • The Planting of the Mulberry Tree
    The leaves of the mulberry tree was needed to feed the silk worms being nurtured in the trustee's garden in Savannah. All of the first land grants given were conditioned upon the settler planting 500 trees.  The leaves from these trees were then used to feed the worms.in the filature house. The silk worm's diet of mulberry leaves causes them to secrete a protein like substance from their heads which produces a cocoon around their bodies. The cocoons are then unwound and the silk thread, or filatures, can be woven into fabric.  In 1735 Queen of England wore a gown…
  • Silk-Worms
    The Trustee's Garden was operated by Italians and Swiss who knew the art of producing silk from a silk-worm which resembled the appearance of a moth.  It was a long process which included nurturing the worms in clay ovens over the winter and then in the spring feeding them on a bed of mulberry leaves spread across a long table. Ultimately the cocoons produce a single thread about 914 meters long. (It takes about 3000 cocoons to make a pound of silk). The process of removing the silk involved boiling the cocoons in hot water then gently removing the strands…
