This Day in Georgia History

June 09, 1732

Royal Charter Witnessed

Georgia’s royal charter was witnessed at Westminster “by Writ of Privy Seal,” suggesting that this is the date the charter was officially issued. Actually, the charter was approved by the Privy Council in January 1732, signed by King George II on April 21, 1732. It was not until June 20, 1732, that the charter received all the approvals from boards, committees, and offices required for official promulgation.
