Scope and Content Note

The Peter Manigault Letter Book Collection consists of microfiche copies of bound volume of letters written by Manigault from October 1763 through May 1773 most while served in the South Carolina House of Commons. Peter Manigault (1731-1773) was a Charleston, SC Lawyer, legislator, and planter born to the wealthy merchant Gabriel Manigault (1704-1781) and Anne Ashby Manigault (1705-1782). Peter Manigault studied law at London’s Inner Temple, and was called to the British bar in 1752. Manigault served in the South Carolina House of Commons in 1755, and again from 1766 to 1773. Late in 1773 he left South Carolina for England for health reasons, resigning the speakership of the South Carolina House of Commons and died later that year on November 12, 1773.
