How Colonials

Colonial Dress
By Jeannette Holland Austin

Shoe buckles were worn manufactured of brass, steel or silver. The periwig was worn during the latter part of the 17th century. In 1689, William Byrd sent one of his wigs to his London merchant with instructions to have it altered. The covering of heads of men consisted of the monmouth cap, the felt, the beaver or caster and the sraw hat. The neck-cloth was of blue linen, calico dowlas, muslan or the finest holland. The band or falling collar was made either of linen or lace. The material of the coat ranged from broadcloth, camlet, fustian drugget and serve to cotton, kersey, frieze, canvas and buckskin. In 1638 a pair of boots in Accomac were valued at forty pounds of tobacco.

A Transatlantic Steamer in Savannah #history #genealogy #georgiapioneers

The Savannah; Transatlantic Steamer
By Jeannette Holland Austin

The SavannahA French report on American steam vessels published in 1823 as well as Russian newspaper accounts contemporary with the steamship Savannah upon its historic voyage  in 1819, described a rigged scale model purported to be of the pioneer transatlantic steamer Savannah. For many years this model was generally accepted as being a reasonably accurate representation and was the basis for countless illustrations but it does not agree with the published catalog description as to the side paddle wheels nor does it agree with the material in the Marestier report, which is accepted as the only source for a contemporary picture of the Savannah. Consequently, the National Museum undertook the research necessary to correct or replace the existing model with the help of Frank O. Braynard of the American Merchant Marine Institute, Eugene S. Ferguson, curator of mechanical and civil engineering at the Museum, and others. The Savannah crossed from Savannah, Georgia to Liverpool, England from May 22 to June 20, 1819; and proceeded to the Baltic, where she entered at St. Petersburg (now Leningrad), Stockholm, and a few other ports. Upon her return she reached Savannah, Georgia on November 30, and then on December 3 she sailed for Washington, D.C., arriving on December 16. Her original logbook on exhibition in the Museum covers the period between March 28, 1819, when she first left New York for Savannah, to December 1819 when she was at Washington. The United States National Museum's new model of the Savannah (pictured) was built by Arthur Henning, Inc., of New York City, from the ship's plans as reconstructed by staff members of the Museum's division of transportation.

River Street in Savannah

Factor's Walk

Factor's Walk, Savannah
If you were a planted during the 17th and 18th centuries, you needed someone to manage your imports and exports.  A factoring agent bargained for the best prices and shipped plantation goods abroad.  The Savannah River served as a busy port town. The planters in Savannah did well after 1752, when the Trustees surrendered the Charter to King George and they could bring slaves into the colony.  The industry and prosperity of the plantations is reflected in the first several books of wills and estates in the probate court where wills and inventories averaged 50 pages or more!  All of the old Chatham County Wills and Estates are available to members of Georgia Pioneers
