from family bibles but, unfortunately, 'augmented' so
one cannot tell what comes from the bibles and what
from elsewhere.

# The parents of Matthys Michiel Basson

When he made his joint will with his wife in 1780, he stated
that both his parents were already dead.

At this period baptismal witnesses were almost always very
close relatives of the child, such as grandparents and uncles
and aunts.

At the baptism of their first child, Mattheijs Michjel, in 1767
the witnesses were Hendrik Feijt en Barbara Krugel, the
parents of Maria Feijt.

At the baptism of their second child, Barbara, in 1769 the
witnesses were Mattheijs Michielse Basson senior and
Martha Meijburgh. I have therefore assumed that these
were his parents. Their son, Matthijs Michiel, is listed as
one of the heirs of his father in 1775. Several other of the
baptisms of their children are all consistent with Matthijs
being a child of these parents.
