About Rikstje Egberts

Variants first name: Ricx / Rixt / Rikstje

Birth:

About 1631 - see baptism information below. On her marriage certificate it is stated that she is from Weidum, which at the time was located in the Baarderadeel municipal area. Nowadays it is in the Littenseradiel municipal area.

Note: this information is probably not applicable to Rikstje. See explanation below.

Baptism:

In Friesland at the time, a child had the first name of the father as patronym (used in the place of a surname). This was the case most of the time, but not always.

Sometimes the patronym of the father also became the patronym of the child. If this was the case for Rikstje, then the following information could be of her, but it is not certain at this stage:

Leeuwarden, dopen, doopjaar 1632

Dopeling: Ricx

Gedoopt op 1 januari 1632 in Leeuwarden

Dochter van Jense Egberts en niet genoemde moeder

Gestandaardiseerde namen (voornaam en patroniem):

Dopeling : RIKSTJE

Vader : IENSE EGBERTS

Wijzigingsdatum: 19-12-2006

If the customary use of patronym was used for Rikstje, she would have been known as Rikstje Jenses and then the above information would not be applicable to her.

More research needs to be done.

Leeuwarden, huwelijken 1657

Vermelding: Ondertrouw in 1657

Children:

Most probably they had two sons together - Age Douwes and Gerben Douwes.

Death:

She did not emigrate to South Africa with Douwe, reason unknown. Most probably Douwe left for South Africa after she died. Her death date is estimated to be before Douwe Gerbens left for South Africa since she is never mentioned in any official document written by Douwe Gerbrandt STEYN in South Africa.
