Our organization was begun informally in the 1960's. The Georgia #1 Company
of the Jamestowne Society was officially organized on 16 January 1982 with Mr.
Varney Graves, Sr. as the organizing Governor. The Charter is dated 1 March 1982.
Mr. Graves death occurred during his term and Mr. C.P. Crosby took over as Governor.
Upon the recommendation of Mrs. Caroline Breeding, the name was changed to First
Georgia Company as it remains today. After Mr. Crosby's term as Governor, Mr.
Jack Bledsoe became the Company Governor followed by Mrs. Lillian Livingston,
Mrs. Caroline Breeding, Mrs. Gaynelle Richardson, Dr. Hardwick Johnson, Jr., Mr.
Alvis Weatherly, Jr., Mr. George Parson, Esq, Mrs. Martha Wright, Mrs. Grace Sanders and Robert S. Evans.
Our present Governor is W. Charles Hampton.
In 2007 we not only had the joy of celebrating the 400th anniversary of Jamestowne,
but First Georgia Company celebrated their 25th anniversary.

We are located in Atlanta, Georgia, heart of the South. Members are close enough to Virginia to travel frequently to the fall
meeting of the Jamestowne Society in Richmond, and to the spring meeting in Williamsburg/Jamestowne,
Virginia. Many of Jamestowne's early settlers have descendants who today live in the Atlanta area.
The First Georgia Company has a spring luncheon in June and a general business meeting luncheon
on the Saturday before Thanksgiving in November. Our agenda is composed
of a business meeting, program, and lunch.
