county information

Charlton County was created on Feb. 18, 1854 by the Georgia General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1853-54, p. 290). The new county was created entirely from Camden County, with portions of Ware County added in 1855 (Ga. Laws 1855-56, p. 135). In 1856, the boundary between Charlton and Camden counties was readjusted, with each county gaining and losing land (Ga. Laws 1855-56, p. 131). Portons of Charlton County were used to create Brantley County in 1920 (Ga. Laws 1920, p. 34). Georgia's 111th county was named for former U.S. Senator Robert M. Charlton, who died in January 1854.
