----------------------

­PIENAAR Jacques Pinard* 1665, afkomstig van La Beauce of Pays Chartrain, in Frankryk, † voor 1714, timmerman. As Franse vlugteling in 1688 op die "Voorschoten" uitgekom. x Delft (Franse Kerk St. Aechten) 10.12.1687 Hester Fouché, * 1667, † 1697; xx Martha le Fèbre.

Jacques PINARD, born 1665 arrived on the same ship in 1688 together with his wife Esther FOUCHE who he married on 10 Desember 1687 in the Waalsekerk in Delft. She was then 21 years old so born in 1667.

------------

Pieter Coertzen, in 'Die Huguenote van Suid-Afrika 1688-1988' points to the likelihood that this Esther is Philippe Foucher/Fouche's SISTER - hence them all coming out on the same boat - together with Philippe's 5 year old daughter, Esther Fouche. (Perhaps this is the reason the elder Esther - who was definitely married to Jacques Pinard/Pienaar - who was also on the same boat - became known as Hester.) Coertzen also has Philippe's eldest daughter, Anne - 7 years' old on the boat - as going to live with this Esther - her aunt - and Jacques Pinard on their farm Lustig-Aan, rather than on her parents' farm de Wilde Paardenjacht. The French boat lists don't confirm this, but it seems a strong possibility if the then newly married, 21 yr old Esther had no children yet. Especially as, of Philippe and Anne Souchay's 5 sons and 3 daughters - two had already died in Europe before they left, and two of the three that were on the boat with them never married- possibly because they died young too. ...
