It seems that Isabeau had an illetigimate relationship before 1707 with Guillaume Loret. He then married her daughter Elisabeth. At the wedding ceremony Ds.Beck refused to read the necessary marriage documents, and Pierre Joubert and a schoolmaster on his farm, David Du Buisson, wrote a petition against Ds Beck.. but it never came to that.

Isabeau Richard

  • Migrated on Berg China which left Rotterdam 20 Mar 1688 and arrived Table Bay 4 Aug 1688.
  • On the Ships list she is named Isabeau Richard Malan Joubert.
  • Married to Pierre Joubert
  • Daughter Louisa Joubert born 1699

Die name van Isabeau Richard en haar vorige eggenoot, Pierre Malan, verskyn op die skeepslys van die "Berg China", opgestel 23 November 1687. Die Berg China Rotterdam op 30 Maart 1688 verlaat en op 4 Augustus 1688 Tafelbaai bereik.

Die waarskynlikheid is dat Susanne Reyne (Pierre Joubert se 1ste vrou) en Pierre Malan (Isabeau se 1ste man) oorlede is voordat die Berg China in Tafelbaai aangekom het.

Isabeau Richarde in Booyens 'China'

There are three Mallans living in and around Saint Martin de la Brasque:

  • i. Pierre Mallan is married to Isabeau Richarde.
  • ii. Anthoine Mallan is married to Isabeau Verdette and they have a little daughter.
  • iii. The third is Jacques Mallan, cousin of Pierre and Anthoine. He is as yet unmarried.

Pierre Mallan, wife Isabeau Richarde from St. Martin de la Brasque; Church records for arrival in Genève 12.09.1687; Schaffhausen 30.09.1687; Frankfurt 31.10.1687 (In South Africa she is known as Richard(e), and it is given that way also by the VOC, but at Frankfurt, the only church where Mallan's wife is identified by name, it is Tricharde. This was likely an error as the surname Richard was reasonably common in the Luberon.) VOC records in Rotterdam Dec 1687 for proposed China ship list: Pierre Malan (23) and his wife Isabeau Richarde (20)

...When Isabeau Richarde steps off the China, she is by all accounts already married to Pierre Joubert although there is no emphatic record of that. We therefore conclude that Pierre Joubert, though in a slightly different category, also sailed on the China and, likely, was married to Isabeau by the ship's unknown chaplain ...Isabeau Richarde -Boarded and survived - married to P. Mallan then P. Joubert ...Given that his wife, Isabeau Richarde, has been concluded to be on the ship, it is most likely that Pierre Mallan boards the ship with her, but perishes on board. Isabeau then marries Pierre Joubert, after he loses his own young wife, Suzanne Reyne on board.

Pierre Joubert and Isabeau Richard will give us the huge Joubert family of South Africa, including Kommandant-General Piet Joubert, leader of the Boer forces in two wars against Britain. In this he will gain the reputation of being the only military leader in the world to formally defeat Britain in a war in the Victorian era – the First Anglo-Boer War of 1881. He will also be leader in the second war and gain thereby the admiration of all of Continental Europe.

Pierre Jaubert, Suzanne Reyne & Isabeau Richarde in Boucher

The name Pierre Jaubert (Joubert) does not appear in the December 1687 list of refugees on the Berg China; that of Susanne Reyne (Resne), however, “jonge dochter out 20 jaren”, is included. There was clearly a last-minute marriage here, as the register of the Walloon church at Brielle in the United Provinces indicates. The ceremony took place on February 1, 1688 and was conducted by Godefroi Lambiron after the publication of the required banns in a single day, with special permission of the town-council. The wording of the marriage entry has perpetuated an error: the bride is described as “Susanne Reyne de la Roque, native d’Antheron en provence”. It should read: “Susanne Reyne, native de La Roque-d’Antheron en Provence”.171 La Roque, closely linked until 1663 with the Lourmarin church, lies south of the Durance. Pierre Jaubert’s place of birth is correctly given as La Motte- d'Aigues. At the time of his marriage he would be about twenty-four years of age.

Also in the embarkation list for the Berg China are Pierre Malian (Malan), a young man of twenty-three, and his wife of twenty, Isabeau Richarde. Herein lies an apparent mystery, since we hear no more of Pierre Malian and Susanne Reyne and find that at the Cape Pierre Jaubert is the husband of Isabeau (Elisabeth) Richarde. It is perhaps no mystery at all. Death doubtless claimed two of these refugees and the survivors remarried.172 The place where this second ceremony took place remains uncertain.

I WAS NAMED AFTER HER!!! My mother (ANNA MARIA JOUBERT) always told me my names were very important and the ancestral name for the Jouberts.... ISABEAU ELIZABETH. I battled with the name for years, but eventually came to love it and be proud of it.
