Farm "Calais" Daljosafat. -------------------- of Calais, by the Ronden Berg in Daljosaphat. Born 1696, Cape of Good Hope. baptized 14 October 1696, Drakenstein.

Their joint will of 1744 was made and signed on the farm of Andries du Toit situated in the Wagenmakersvallei and in it she stated that neither of her parents was then living.

In her will of 1768 she left her farm on which she dwelt to her son-in-law David de Villiers at a valuation of 12 000 guilders Indian valuation.

It would seem from her will that he already lived there with her and ran the farm and she therefore wished him to continue there after her death as the full owner.

Her children and grandchildren are given as listed in her will of 1768
