de SAINT-PRIEST (де-СЕН-ПРИ) - France
The Guignard de Saint-Priest family has been know since at least the 14th century. The domain of Saint-Priest near Lyon was erected into a viscounty by LP of Anne of Austria, Regent of France, Nov. 1646; confirmed by the parliament of Grenoble, 23 May 1647. François Emmanuel de Guignard, comte de Saint-Priest, and his sons emigrated to Russia at the time of the Revolution. He was later created a peer of France, 17 Aug. 1815. Kingdom of France: 31 Aug. 1817 (mpr.) for the same as a Count-Peer (comte-pair) de Saint-Priest. His son, Count Armand Charles Emmanuel was in Russian service for a time an married Princess Sofia Alekseevna Golitsyna. According to RoRK, their children, Alexis, Emmanuel, and Olga were admitted to the Russian nobility by an IU, 10 Mar. 1825, citing the Senatskiia viedomosti 1825. No mention is made of the title of count in this connection and none of the official lists of the titled families of the Empire mention the Saint-Priests. The reason could be the fact that they returned to France at the time of the Restoration, yet they are listed by Dolgorukov in RoRK along with the other foreign counts who had their titles recognised in the Russian Empire.
