Pieter Rossouw 7 circa 1727-circa 1738
born circa August 1727
baptized 4 October 1727, Drakenstein 8
died circa 1738 9

Notes: According to the inventory drawn up on 15th November 1727,
after the death of Sophia van der Merwe, she left one small son aged
three months, named Pieter Russou. That this child died in early 1738
is attested by the statment in the inventory drawn up 10 May 1738 after
the death of his step mother, Maria Retief, which states her five children
had inherited from their late half brother, Pieter Russouw, according
to an act of the Weeskamer dated 21 April 1738, the sum of f808-6-9, as
recorded by the act of 21 November 1727.

Both De Viliers/Pama's Geslagregister and the current edition of South
African Genealogies, have this child as being the Pieter Rossouw who
married Martha Nortje in 1751. Mariana Olivier, by her research into the
original baptismal and estate records, has demonstrated that the Pieter
Rossouw who married Martha Nortje was the son of Gabriel Rossouw
the uncle of this child.
