Private User, says "It seems pretty clear that Jacques senior stayed in France, so to suggest that he died in SA is not supported. All that can be said from the letter was that he was alive in 1719, and considered himself old.
Where has a birth year of 1724 come from - this would make him ancient, not old - a very unlikely age for then."
Given that I asked for sources in 2013, and none have surfaced, I'm going to delete that info and lock those fields. If you have sources to prove this death place / date - please yell! :-)
not surre if this proves anything
will have to try find a death certificate.
Eileen, that's for his son: also called Jacques Therond, SV/PROG. He definitely did die in the Cape
Eileen, none of those links have any useful info. This is an English translation of the 1719 letter written by Jacques snr from France to his son in the Cape.
