About Stephanus Gous
- Stephanus Gous
- born 1720
- baptized 1 September 1720, Cape Town
- died between 1720 and 1721, most probably
Notes: In the opgaaf returns Steven Gous and Catharina Bok have no children in 1721, 3 daughters in 1725, 4 daughters in 1731, 5 daughters in 1735, the same in 1738, and in 1751 they have 1 son and 5 daughters. It would seem, therefore, that their first child, Stephanus, had died before 1725. (Univ of the Western Cape computerisation). Certainly this son, Stephanus, was not listed amongst his mother's heirs in her will of 1758, so must have died before that date without leaving any heirs.
