About Jacques Roi

Not assigned SV/PROG status (alongside his brother) unless he had children. CJB.


A mere handful of miles west of Cabrières d'Aigues is Lourmarin. Here we find André Rey and his wife Jeanne Mille, with their two sons, Jean and Jacques.

André Rey, wife Jeanne Mille & their sons, Jean & Jacques Rey, of Lourmarin in Church Records: Genève 15.09.1687 Schaffhausen 30.09.1687 Frankfurt 31.10.1687.

Neither appear in the VOC list of proposed passengers on the China in Rotterdam Dec 1687, but Jeanne Mille arrives in the Cape, & is married Arniel before April 1690 - ship uncertain

We have 18 individuals who may have boarded the China and died on it. The names of all but two are on the VOC list of 23 December 1687 for the China. They are André Rey and his son Jacques Rey. As already seen, Jacques' mother Jeanne Mille and his brother Jean do eventually arrive at the Cape, but the ship is unclear.

Jeanne Mille, her two sons, Jean and Jacques, and her husband, André Rey, do not board the China. Jeanne Mille and son Jean do indeed eventually arrive at the Cape, but possibly on another ship. We know that Jeanne Mille and Jean “Roy” receive help at the Cape from the Batavian fund. The assumption is that André Rey and his son Jacques are destined to die on the voyage to the Cape on another ship; likely the Wapen van Alkmaar.
