Anthony Stokes (1736-1799) came to Georgia in 1769 from England where he studied law at the Inns of Court (Gray's Inn and the Inner Temple). He assumed the position as chief justice of the general court, which he held until 1776. After the final collapse of British authority in 1782, Stokes returned to England never to regain his former significance and station in life.
