# The parents of Jacobus Louw Pietersz:

I have no direct evidence as to who his parents were, only indirect:

He is named as Jacobus Louw Pietersz: in his will dated 6th August 1777.

We know that Jacobus, the son of Pieter Jansz Louw and Elizabeth
Wendels lived into adulthood because he applied to the Council of Policy
on 23rd March 1723 to be granted administration of his own goods even
though, aged 23, he had not yet reached the age of majority (25). On the
recommendation of the Orphan Masters, this was granted to him.
(Cape Archives, C. 65, pp. 45-54, TANAP)

His first child was named Petrus Johannes, after his father, and the
witnesses were his eldest brother, Johannes Louw and Magdalena
Wendels, presumably his late mother's sister.
(Stellenbosch baptisms page 128, 31 October 1728)
