Bryan County, GA
Jury List


Bryan County, formed in 1793, was at one time the home of many wealthy planters. In it was the Town of Hardwick, which was chosen by Governor Reynolds for the Seat of Government, but never used as such. Clyde, the county Seat, is so inconvenient to get to, the Clerk and Ordinary are allowed to have their offices at home.

All the records of the Ordinary's office were destroyed by fire in 1866, and now the land records are in a small wooden building, in which is a safe that will not hold one fifth of the books, so the clerk naturally keeps the latest in the safe and the old ones are in constant danger from the fires of adjoining woods and turpentine farms. All the deeds are indexed, but several of the oldest Volumes are in bad condition and should be copied. There are also nearly a dozen old books of Minutes of the Inferior Court that ought to be preserved.
