Glynn County Georgia is one of the original counties. It was created in 1777 from St David and St. Patrick Parishes. Glynn county acquired the Sea Islands from Liberty County in 1789. Wayne County was created from Glynn in 1805. Glynn traded land with Wayne County in 1805, 1820, 1822, 1858, 1860 and took land from Camden County in 1858.
Crown land grants from the Colonial era still exist. Records for the county begin in 1787. The county has deeds, dating from 1787, probate records from 1790 and court records from 1810. Marriage records start in 1810. Birth and death records were not kept on a state wide basis before the 1919 Georgia State Law required the tracking of births and deaths. Actual birth records begin 1928 and death records begin in 1922.
