Ship Ann (Georgia)


The 112 individuals listed below made up the first forty families to arrive in Georgia with General James Oglethorpe. These settlers left England, sailing from Gravesend on the ship Ann, on November 17, 1732. They arrived in Charleston, South Carolina on January 13, 1733 and set sail for Georgia one week later. January 31, 1733, they stepped for the first time onto Georgia soil. (This was on a barrier island, they stepped ashore in Savannah, 12 February, 1733).

Georgia was a frontier and living conditions were difficult. The majority of the first 40 families were towns people from England without knowledge of farming or other subsistence living crafts. With their lack of basic survival skills combined with a wilderness setting, probable salt poisoning from their water, diseases borne by insects and created by lack of sanitary measures, it's no wonder that the death rate was alarmingly high. Many of the descendents of these first 112 settlers still live in Georgia. Some of the families were located south of Savannah to present day Camden County and Glynn County to colonize and to man the fortifications established by Oglethorpe.

This list gives the name of each colonist, age upon embarking on the ship Ann, occupation and/or family connection, official position in Georgia, and status 21 years later.
