On May 4, 1782, the Georgia legislature passed the Confiscation and Banishment Act. This act declared 277 loyalists guilty of treason and allowed for the confiscation of their property. Loyalists who left the state had their property seized. The statement of Georgia loyalists and accompanying list of persons whose property was confiscated was transcribed and published from a handwritten document in the GHS collection. The transcription can be found starting on page 17 of Collections of the Georgia Historical Society, Volume XX: Selected Eighteenth Century Manuscripts.
