Biographical/Historical Note

Richmond County, Georgia was established in 1777, replacing St. Pauls Parish. The county originally encompassed land that later became Richmond, Columbia, and McDuffie Counties, as well as parts of Warren, Glascock, and Jefferson Counties. Augusta became the county seat.

The Richmond County Courthouse was established by a January 23, 1780 act of the Georgia Legislature for a courthouse jail, and seminary in Augusta.

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of records from the Richmond County Courthouse. Only a few of the papers are of the 1796 period; the remainder cover 1804-1864. They include a variety of legal documents; e.g., libels for divorce, mortgages, deeds, fi fas, leases, judgments, summonses, warrants, bonds, complains, testimonies, affidavits, etc. they also cover a variety of cases, such as equity, estates, debt, felonies, misdemeanors, inquests. No records of trials are in the collection. A large portion of the papers involve litigation with the Fashion Steamboat Line. These have been placed at the end of the collection. The other papers are arranged alphabetically by name of plaintiff (occasionally by defendant) rather than type of record or chronology.
