Colquitt County split from Lowndes and Thomas counties in 1856 and later gave up part of its land to Irwin County. It is the namesake of Reverend Walter T. Colquitt who served as a U.S. senator and a local judge as well as a Methodist minister. Moultrie, the county seat, is named for General William Moultrie, a Revolutionary War figure.
