Anna Retief 1
died circa April 1710, (assumed from date of inventory) 2

Pierre Rousseau
circa 1666-circa 1719
of De Boog van Orleans, by the Bergrivier, Drakenstein 3





1696 -




1703 -



children of Anna Retief and Pierre Rousseau

Anna Rousseau born 1691
born 1691 4
baptized 8 July 1691, Stellenbosch 5

Maria Rousseau

Notes: I have not, so far, found her baptism, nor any
document listing her age, but this seems a likely area for
her birth, since she married in 1711.

Magdalena Rousseau

Notes: De Villiers / Pama gives her a marriage date
of 5.5.1714 but I cannot find this in the extant marriage
registers of the time.

Generaale Opneemrolle 31 April, 1 & 2 Mei 1716
VC 49, p. 328, Drakensteijn
Jan Louis du Plesis en Magdalena Rosseau

Aletta Rousseau

Notes: I have not, so far found a baptism or age for her, but she
appears as one of the four children of Pieter Rousseau in the inventory,
dated 3 March 1719, who had not yet received their inheritance portion
from their mother's estate. There she is listed ahead of her three brothers
Gabriel, Pieter and Daniel, probably implying that she was the eldest of the
four. Since we have no idea of when she was born she could have been
any age at this date. This allows a wide latitude for guesswork and it would
be a good idea to examine the opgaaf returns for statistics on the children.
Meanwhile I have located her in the largest space available amongst her
