Francois du Toit 1
of Kleinbosch, Drakenstein 2
born Rijssel, Flanders 3
died before December 1731, (based on will filing date) 4
He came from Flanders and arrived at the Cape in 1686, on board
the Dutch East India Ship 'De Vrijheid' which, in that year, left
Wielengen on the 9th March 1686 bound for Batavia, calling at the
Cape between 23rd June 1686 and 3rd July 1686.

dienaren in Kaap der Goede Hoop. 1725.

Where I have been unable to find other evidence, I have listed the
children in the order established by Juna Malherbe (see 1. below).

Both in their will of 1715 and that of 1730, Francois and Susanne make
special provision for their youngest son, Steven or Stephanus.

In the 1715 will he is left 800 gulden over and above what would be his
share. In 1723 he is left the same plus the farmhouse called 'de Lemite
Rivier', the reason for this is his disablitiy (gebrekkelijkheijt).

In 1730 they issued a codicil changing their executors with no mention
of the son Stephanus.
