Welcome to
Scott County, Kentucky Genealogy



To give you a brief background of Scott County, according to B. O. Gaines History of Scott County, Vol. 2,: in April of 1775 John McClellan and others built a "fort" near Floyds Spring. Indians attacked on Dec 29, 1776 and the fort was abandoned for a brief time. Until 1780 it was called McClellan's Fort. from 1780-1784 it was called McClellan's Station.  From 1784-1790 it was called Lebanon Station. From 1790-1792 it was called George Town. Then it was named Georgetown. 

In June of 1774 Col. John Floyd and others, came through the country which was then Fincastle, VA, and stopped at the Big Spring, then named it Floyd's Spring. In 1775 it was renamed Royal Spring. It is still the main source of water for the town. 
(preceeding information submitted by:  Doris B. Reed)  Royal Spring flowed into the North Elkhorn Creek and from
there into the Kentucky River.  Due to religious
persecution, Reverand Elijah Craig led his church members
out of  Orange Co, Virginia and they settled in  Royal Spring.  In 1790 Rev. Craig changed the name to 
George Town in honor of President George Washington and in 1792 this town became known
as Georgetown, Kentucky.

At that time Scott County was formed from Woodford County and Kentucky became a state of the union. 
This county was  named for General Charles Scott who was a Revolutionary War hero from Virginia.
You may want to look there as well for the names you are researching.
