Georgia: A Royal Colony Government Land Ownership Slavery 1752-1776 Conclusion As a Royal Colony, Georgia's colonists and its Governors were able to better adapt to changing conditions to make the colony more economically successful than ever before. As a Proprietary Colony:
Women could not inherit land
No one could own more than 500 acres
Borrowing $$$ against the land colonists owned was forbidden. (like a mortgage) One of the biggest differences between Georgia as a Proprietary colony and as a Royal colony was the structure of Government in the colony. c.

Many colonial Georgians (the malcontents) simply wanted slavery so they could compete with farmers in South Carolina that used slaves...just in order to stay in business. Proprietary Colony:
Trustees in charge
Colonists had NO voice in Government Royal Colony:
Governor (appointed by King) was in charge)
