Wayne county was created on May 11, 1803 from lands ceded from the Creek Indians and named after the Revolutionary War General Anthony Wayne. The county seat is Jesup. In 1920 Brantley county was created from portions of Wayne county. Some of local communities are: Jesup, Odum, Gardi, Pendarvis, and Screven and prior to 1920 Hortense, Nahunta, Waynesville, and Atkinson were part of Wayne county.
