Planters and Business Men: The Guignard Family of South Carolina, 1795-1930
"The Guignard family of South Carolina was established by Gabriel Guignard who came to the province from France before 1737. ... The Guignard Collection begins with the papers of John Gabriel Guignard, son of the emigrant, who was born in Charleston in 1751 and died in Columbia in 1822. ... Before his marriage in 1779, Guignard had moved from Charleston to High Hills of Santee near what is now Stateburg in Sumter. ... In 1779 Guignard was married to Elizabeth Sanders, daughter of James and Sarah Slann Sanders. ... In 1795 Guignard completed what was to be the family pattern of planting, business, and public office, and established the future family home when he became Treasurer of the Upper Division of South Carolina with his office in Columbia. He continued as Treasurer until 1798 when he was elected Surveyor General of South Carolina, a post in which he served until 1802. ... John G. and Elizabeth Sanders Guignard had only one child, James Sanders Guignard, born in 1780. With this son the bulk of the collection begins."--P. 3-4. Descendants and relatives lived in South Carolina, North Carolina and elsewhere.
