born 1740, at the Cape
baptized 12 June 1740, Cape Town

Notes: The witnesses at his baptism were Steven Gouts and Anna Gouts. Would these have been his sister and his father, or Stephanus Gous the son of his half-uncle, Andries Gous?
On the 22nd September 1757 he was granted the right to graze stock at the Reeboksfontein on the Gouritz River, vacated by his mother, the Widow Stephen Gous.
He and his wife appear to have had no children, but to have adopted as their son Andries Carel Eduard Alexander Fackelijn Gous. (MOOC 7/1/49, 85 - Will of A.S.Gous, 1804).
