Jasper County Genealogy




Jasper County was formed in 1912 from Beaufort County and Hampton County. The County was named for a Revolutionary War Sergeant William Jasper. Ridgeland is the county seat. Before colonization, the Coosaw and Yemassee Indians made this area home. Purrysburgh was settled here in 1732 by German Swiss immigrants led by John Pierre Purry. This settlement on the Savannah River did not survive. There were rice plantations in this county which later have been converted into a nature preserve, the Savannah Natural Wildlife Refuge. The Civil War saw a confederate victory here in 1864 in the battle of Honey Hill. A signer of the Declaration of Independence was from this area, Thomas Heyward, Jr.
