About Catharina Zaayman, b1

.Her husband was the Commander of Mauritius between 13 august 1692 and 26 July 1703. She married Roelof at the age of 31 and died when she was 36. I have found two other children from a different source from their two sons so I am hoping more info can be found on them. One source names the two boys and the other two girls?


I don't think she had any daughters, or they died young, without leaving descendants. Cf Daniel Zaaijman's inventory dated 1 Dec 1713:

Staet en inventaris van alle de goederen naergelaten en met er doot ontruijmt bij wijlen Daniel Zaeijman, ten voordeele van desselfs ondertenoemen erfgenaemen, als

Pieter Zaeijman, Daniel Zaeijman, Christiaen Zaeijman,

Johannes Diodaetij en Samuel Diodaeti als representeerende haer overleedene moeder, Catharina Zaeijman


Aldus geinventarizeert aen Caap de Goede Hoop den 1:en December 1714.
