The baptismal entry for this child in in the register of the Cape Town
church, but it is noted to have been performed at Stellenbosch. The
mother's name is left blank. Presumably the minister was unable to
read his notes when making up the register back in Cape Town, as
the names of Christoffel's children are perfectly consistent with his
being a child of Jan Smit and Adriana Tol.

From 1708 to 1719 Christoffel Smit is listed in the muster rolls alone,
but from 1722 onwards as living with Catharina Le Febre.

The marriage entry in the Stellenbosh register does not record their
places of birth, nor whether either or both had been married before.

Neither Christoffel nor his wife were able to write, each signing their
renunciation of the estate of their daughter Lijsbet in 1759 with a mark.
