  Camden County, Georgia was created in 1777 from  St. Mary's and St. Thomas parishes.  It was   originally set up in 1765 into three parish districts of St. Mary's, St. Patrick and St. Thomas. Camden was named for Charles Pratt, the Earl of Camden.   The county seat is Woodbine, Georgia

  The Camden County area had settlements as early as the 1500's, when the Spanish tried to colonize the area, but retreated back to St. Augustine due to Indian raids.  There was conflict between the Spanish and English over this area of land, as both had laid claim to it.

In 1742 during the battle of "Bloody Marsh" on St. Simon's Island the English won its claim to this area.
