About Antie Steyn, b2

Her first name as spelt in early documents: Antie, Antje. She was most probably named after her grandmother, Antje/Antye Huigs

Antie's surname variants: STEYN / STEIJN. In the birth document of her son she is listed as Antje DOUWE.

On Geni we tend to use the maiden surnames / birth name of all ladies, especially if they were born before the 1800's. This helps to avoid confusion especially if the lady in question was married two or three times. We add the tag after the maiden/birth surname e.g. Anna Steyn b2. If her married name is Prins, as is the case here, the b2 should not be put after Prins, because that would make people think she was b2 in the Prins family. So then one would indicate like this Anna Prins (Steyn b2). It would be very helpful if everybody kept to this guideline. Thanks.

Oudste register van die kerk.

"Die peettante van Maria Lozee se dogter Anna was niemand anders as die eggenote van die bekende eerw. J. Overney, predikant van Kaapstad en stigter van die gemeente Stellenbosch, wat in 1687 oorlede is. Dit is byna seker dat hy Jacobus gedoop het en die huwelike tussen Douwe Gerbrants en sy vrou volstrek het. As mens terug reken vanaf die doop van Jacobus in 1683, dan is die datum van die geboorte van Maria Lozee aan die Kaap ongeveer 1660-5."Alt Marriage: Maria LOZEE(LOOSEE) v.d.K. vdK Date: 9 Aug 1685 Location: South Africa
