South Carolina SC History SC Governors Governor John Peter Richardson, III
John P. RichardsonOur 83rd governor was the third in a line of John Peter Richardsons. He was preceded by his grandfather, John Peter Richardson, Esq, and his father – also a governor – John Peter Richardson. Neither son nor father used a suffix during their lifetimes, nor is a suffix recorded on either of their headstones. Suffixes are, in fact, not mandatory, though they are often used for the purpose of genealogical clarity. In that vein, we also will refer to South Carolina's second "Governor John Peter Richardson" as John Peter Richardson, III.
