born 1678, at the Cape 12
baptized 22 May 1678, Cape Town 13
died circa 1713 14

Notes: baptised as Jacoba, she first appears in the muster
rolls dated 23 January 1702 with her husband Jan Schopping,
and they continue to be listed until 1706. From this last date
she is listed as Jacominjtje and that is how she is known until
her death in 1713.

The inventory drawn up on 12th September 1713, after her
death names her heirs as her husband and her father, which
means that she left no children.

 married (1) circa 1702 (muster rolls of that year) 15

Jan Schupping died circa 1707
heemraad and farmer 16
died circa October 1707 17
will dated 6 October 1707

Notes: He is described as sick and weak of body
and confined to bed in his will dated 6th October 1707
but is stil listed in the muster roll dated 31 December of
that year. Since he and may, therefore, have died soon after that date.

 married (2) circa 1709 (assumed from muster rolls) 19

Joost Heinrich Frisch 18 born circa 1679
of de Paarl Diamant 20
born circa 1679, Munden, Hanover 21

Notes: He married again, circa 1713, Francina Bastiaansz.

Jacob van der Merwe born 1680
baptized 11 February 1680, Cape Town 22

Pieternella van der Merwe 1682-1717
born 1682
baptized 1 March 1682, Cape Town 23
died between 1717 and 1718 24

Notes: Two children of Johannes Cloeten and Petronella
Schalk were baptised at Stellenbosch on 25th September 1717.
They were named Gerrit and Petronella and the baptismal
witnesses were Hendrik van der Merwe and his wife Catharina
Cloeten, Schalk van der Merwe and Sophia van der Merwe, the
sons and daughters of Willem Schalk van der Merwe and Elsje
Jacobsz. I assume, therefore that the mother of the children
was another of their children, having her brothers and sisters
as baptismal witnesses.

I am not sure, however, that she was the Petronella who was
baptised to that couple in 1682. I thinks she may have been a
later child, since she was not admitted a member of the
Stellenbosch congregation until 1714 and did not apparently
marry until around 1716 (when that child would have been 34).
In 1710 her sister Jacomina listed her sisters thus 'Feijtie, Lena,
Magtelt, Elsie, Neeltie, Eula', which would suggest that Neeljte
was younger than Elsie. On the other hand, if 'Eula' represents
Aeltie, then Neeltie and Aaltie could have been afterthoughts,
added out of order(?)!
