Charles Izard Manigault (1789-1874) was born in Charleston, but grew up in Philadelphia, graduating from the University of Pennsylvania. Some planter and merchant families, like the Izards and Manigaults, spent the hot summer months in the more northern climate, and branches of the family established permanent residences there. After making his fortune as a merchant in the Far East between 1817 and 1823, he settled as a rice planter in South Carolina. Portrait in 1817 by Thomas Sully (1783-1872).
