Which game used guardian (from previous comment)? Or it was used in problem?

I opened up Pritchard's Encyclopedia of Chess Variants at random this morning, and I discovered that someone else had invented the Guardian piece over a hundred years before I did. Regarding Decimal Chess by Lt Obert, Pritchard writes 'The guardian moves as a fers (one square diagonally) and captures as a wazir (one square orthogonally).' This is the same name and the same movement as the piece I created for this game.
