Gerrit Knoetsen 12 born 1706
born 1706 13
baptized 11 July 1706, Drakenstein 14

Notes: This child is clearly recorded in the Drakenstein
baptismal register as 'Geertruij' but it to me it seems most
likely that this was a mistake of the scribe and that the child
baptised was, in fact, Gerrit Knoetsen. In the list of the
Knoetsen wards of the Weeskamer, 1727, he is listed, with
his brothers and sisters, and comes between Catarijn and
Maria Coressen. (Cape Archives: MOOC 18/4).

He is listed in the muster roll of 1733 as a single man.
VC 50, page 21.
