|Neeltje Slabbert 1
born 1685, Meliskerke 2
baptized 29 April 1685, Meliskerke, Walcheren, Zeeland 3
| She and her husband are both described as deceased in the|
Floris Slabbert Inheritance Receipt (MOOC 8/4, 67).
In this same document, bound in a folder apparently containing
documents of circa 1727-31, she is said to have left five children
who represent their deceased mother.
The children are listed as given in the inventory drawn up in
September 1764 after the death of Pieter Slabbert, and from
the baptismal registers of the Cape Town Groote Kerk.

|Elsje Sophia Brand 18 born 1715|

Notes: It seems that on 22nd December 1721, as an orphan,
she was place by the Weeskamer with Jan Arend Rodewalt, as he
was asked on the 22nd February 1722 about his promise on that
dated to take her. Her replied that his wife had not allowed it and
told him to get rid of the child. He had therefore taken her to her
grandfather, Floris Slabbert.

|Huijbregie Brand 22 born 1717|

baptized 13 May 1717, Cape Town 24
Notes: Her name appears with that of her husband on the
reverse side of the Inventory receipt with a note of what they
received out of the estate of Floris Slabbert. I have assumed
that she was one of the five children of Neeltje Slabbert.
The inventory dated September 1764, drawn up after the death
of Pieter Slabbert, her uncle, gives her then hubsband as Adolf
Brits (Huijbregtje Brand vr van Adolf Brits).
