This is just a thought as I really don't know for sure. But my Guise ancestress, Ruth, born 1802 married a Dutchman, Rev. Joseph Kuykendall born 1804 in Buncombe Co. NC.
I had wondered if Joseph still spoke the Dutch language and still had Dutch traits. I wondered why he would marry a woman of a different nationality, thinking (perhaps hoping) that she descended from the Claude de Guise of Alsace France. But perhaps after all she was dutch, Guis, de Guiche from Sud (South) Holland as you mentioned. What would you think. In my family, the name is pronouced "like guyse". While in England, a tour guide said that it was pronouced "like geese". Comments please from anyone. Betty
