On December 22, 1857, the General assembly of the State of Georgia passed an act to layout and form a new county out of the counties of Marion and Sumter, to be named Schley, for William Schley, governor of Georgia from 1835 to 1839. The new county seat was laid off in the early spring of 1858. As a compliment to Miss Ella Burton, eldest daughter of Robert Burton, a leading citizen of this section, the town was named Ellaville.
