About Sophia Schalksz van der Merwe, b1 SM

There seem to have been no children born in his [Peter Robbertsz'] marriage to Sophia van der Merwe. In the opgaaf returns for 1705, 1709 and 1712 only four daughters (no sons) are listed for them, the four daughters being, of course, the children of her first marriage.

For more arguments see my article published in Familia, no 3, 2006, page 75. C.C. de Villiers, in his Geslacht Register of the 1890s, allocated them a son, Jan Robberts. The article also suggests who his parents might in fact have been.
