About Sara Barendsz Cochet, SM/PROG

Sara Cochet appears to have arrived from Walcheren/ Oost Soutberg in Zeeland on the Oosterland on 25 April 1688 as the widow of Pieter/Pierre le Clercq (with whom Coertzen says she had a son, Abraham le Clercq - who comes with her). Less than a month later - on the 16 May 1688 - she marries Guillaume du Toit? They had three daughters. http://www.mypeoplepuzzle.co.za/cornel_viljoen_research/3918.htm

Sara Cochet went to South Africa as a widow with Guillaume du Toit according to SAG volume 4 page 306

[Guillaume, however, arrives before her in 1686, on the ship Vrijheijt, and comes from Lille (in Flandres) so the 'together with' option seems unlikely - Sharon]

Coertzen tells us that also arriving on the Oosterland in 1688 from Zeeland with her are:

  • 1) her son, Abraham le Clercq (who marries Magdalene Motoun 20 years later), but who is settled in Vogel Vallei (Voel Vallei) near Hermon [and not with her and Guillaume du Toit in AAn't Pad, Stellenbosch? Does that suggest he is older enough to own land when her arrives? If so, it's a bit of a tight squeeze for his mom to go on to produce 3 more daughters after this? - Sharon]
  • 2) and Jeanne (marries Andre Gauch and Peter Becker)
  • 3) and Joost

- brother and sister of Abraham.

[Does this mean Sara came with her 3 small / or not so small children? - Sharon]

  • 4) and Marie Madeleine le Clercq (d 1721) - who comes from Flandres with her husband (Jacques de Savoye, who she married in Zeeland in 1686) and her 3 children [producing 3 children by April 1688 suggests multiple births; or children prior to the marriage; or that perhaps all of the 3 children were incorrectly attributed to her. Maybe the le Clercq children of Sara Cochet? - Sharon]

[Is this Marie, perhaps Sara Cochet's sister-in-law with whom she emigrates as a widow / or finding herself a widow on the trip?]
