Maerten Slabbert
Floris Slabbert 1
farmer (1716) 2
of Contermans Kloof, Tijgersberg 3
born 1656
baptized 7 October 1656, Aagtekerke, Zeeland 4
died circa 1732, (possibly - based on Inventory receipt) 5
will dated 21 October 1716 6
and filed 4 November 1730
The children are given here in the order which seems logical. We lack baptismal
information only for Johanna and Jasper, but Johanna was married on 2nd April
1702 at Stellenbosch, and Jasper's first child was baptised 30th July 1713, so
that placing them second and third seems reasonable.

The Slabbert family travelled out from Vlissingen in Zeeland to the Cape on the
ship the 'Sion' which left Wielingen (the roadstead south of Vlissingen) on route
to Ceylon on 19th May 1699, arriving at Cape Town on 27th October 1699 (notes).

They are noted in the membership register of the church at Stellenbosch, the
date being probably between 1698 and June 1700, and then on the 24th Dec.
1704, Floris presented his 'attestaat' to the church at Cape Town.

On 30th March 1713, in reply to a letter from his brother, Pieter Slabber, Floris
wrote to his brothers still living in Westkapelle, Walcheren, to say that, in the
event of the death of his father-in-law that anything due to him and his wife,
they gave to his brother Jeremias Slabbert.

When he made his will in October 1716 he was described as confined to bed
with a broken leg.

The document I have referred to as the Estate Accounts of Floris Slabbert is a
single page filed among the Estate Inventories of 1727-1731, but it is not an
inventory, rather a receipt of payment signed by the heirs, and no date is
preserved. (MOOC 8/5,64)

people died at the Cape during the smallpox epidemic.
