Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to help you track your ancestors through time and place by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

Bryan County was created on 19 December 1793. It
was the 16th county formed in Georgia, from parts of Chatham county. It was named for Jonathan Bryan, a member of the King's Council who accompanied Oglethorpe and was an early critic of oppressive English rule.


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 county seat is now Pembroke
