History

Georgia voters passed a state constitutional amendment on November 2, 1920, to form Brantley County from pieces of Charlton, Pierce, and Wayne counties. Although the precise origin of the county name is unknown, it is believed that it honors either prominent landowner Benjamin Daniel Brantley or his son and U.S. congressman William Gordon Brantley.
