Gie, Jan Casper / Hans Casper born Zurich 1742, brother of Johan Coenraad Gie, arrived 15.5.1764 on Schoongezicht as sailor, died 1.1.1801 at 15 Bree Street. [1] On arrival was loaned as farmhand to his brother [2] until 1777 when Jan Casper became a burgher. [3]

Married 12.12.1784 Johanna Elisabeth Krause, daughter of Johann Gottlieb Krause and Johanna Elizabeth Kuylets of the Cape, widow of George Guerint of Richelieu, France.

They had three children baptised:

  • 1. Casparus Andreas 13.7.1788.
  • 2. Johan Coenraad 31.10.1790, died 1797?
  • 3. Magdalena Dorothea 30.9.1796, died 1839.

No marriages of these were recorded, but two adult baptisms 3.12.1840 might relate to their descendant Johan Coenraad, born 1820 and Casper Coenraad born 1822, married Regina (of the Cape?).
