    Notes 
    • Joseph and his brother Gabriel and two sisters were orphaned at an early age. They were raised by their grandparents, Gabriel Manigault and Ann Ashby. Joseph went to Europe in 1781 to finish his education, studying law at Middle Temple in London. It was at this time that Gilbert Stuart painted his portrait. He later went to Geneva to further his education, and returned to England in 1783. There he started to continue his law studies, but he encountered health problems.

      In 1785 he returned to South Carolina and became a planter. "He inherited more than 22,000 acres and hundreds of slaves from his father and paternal grandfather.... Manigault represented Christ Church Parish in several General Assemblies. He was also active in local institutions, serving as commissioner of the Charleston Orphan House, vice president of the South Carolina Association, and trustee of the College of Charleston."
