About Elisabeth Vivier, b2

See See http://www.ballfamilyrecords.co.uk/kfp/I089.html

When her mother, Jacquemine du Pree died, the children were farmed out by their guardians, the Cape Weesmeesters to 'honourable people of good name and repute'. Elisabeth herself went to live with her Uncle and Aunt, Jacques Theron and Maria Jeanne du Pree.

But from the report submitted by Weesmeesters to the Governor of the Cape in Council in November 1716, it seems that not only had Elisabeth been seduced in 1714 at the home of her grandmother, Cecilia Datis, by her cousin's husband, Charles du Plessis who had trapped her on that in the wine cellar, but in her new home with her uncle, in February 1716 she had again been persuaded by the same man, again in the wine cellar, and she had, as a consequence, become pregnant.

Her daughter, Elisabeth du Plessis, was born in November 1716. Charles du Plessis was orderd to pay f.20 for expenses and f.4 per month for the support of the child.

Her children are given here as listed in her inventory of August 1730.

These children shared their deceased mother's portion of the Estate of their uncle, Isack Vivie, in December 1732, and the four van Wijck children are all mentioned again in October 1740 when their step- mother, Maria Provo, married again. - http://www.ballfamilyrecords.co.uk/kfp/I089.html
