The 112 Passengers of the Ann


The 112 individuals listed below made up the first forty families to arrive in Georgia with General James Oglethorpe.

In attempts to be historically accurate, the following is the timeline of arrivals in different ports in the Southern Colonies. This ship did not dock in Georgia so the date of Arrival, January 20, 1733, is the date that the Ann arrived at it's last port before the passengers disembarked. The main source for this sailing is the A List of the Early Settlers of Georgia book which states an arrival date of February 1, 1733. That date is NOT the date that the Ann docked for passengers to disembark.

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.

The Ann arrived in Port Royal on January 20, 1733. The passengers disembarked on January 21, 1733, still in South Carolina. They stepped for the first time onto Georgia soil. (This was on a barrier island, they stepped ashore in Savannah, in February, 1733). - Per Georgia Historical Society Meeting Notes.

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 descendants 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.
