b2 Hilletje Gerrits bap. 20.5.1703. No evidence of her actual death has been found but it took place before April 1730 for her father’s will made in that month mentions among his heirs “zyn overledene dogter’s dogter, Sophia Brits genaamt en sulx by plaatsvatting ofte representasie . . .” Hilletje was unmarried and the joint will of this daughter of hers, Sophia Brits and her second husband, Carel Joseph Kock in 1770 supplies the identity of Sophia’s father in these words: “so verklaarde de testatrice (Sophia) dat ingevalle sy sonder kinderen nalaten mogh te overlijden sy alsdan aan haaren vader den burger Comelis Brits se oude .. .”. Cornelis was the eldest surviving son of the founder of the family Hans Jacob Brits of Koornhoop so conveniently near the Gerrits farm on the other side of the Liesbeek. No baptism of this illegitimate daughter Sophia has come to light and all documents concerning her are silent as to her age. Brits apparently did not deny paternity for she bore his name.
