About Christine Madeleine du Pont, SM

Although Christine du Pont did not arrive in South Africa, she married a SV/PROG and mothered his children, so she is not a PROG, only SM. Her daughters, as the most senior SA Savoye female members, become potential PROGs in the absence of their mother. [Sharon 2017]
