Pierre Jourdan de Cabrières and the other man - How history confused two different men

by Harry Booyens at http://members.shaw.ca /cliffwoodfogge/Pierre.htm:

On 20 March 1688 the Dutch East India Ship China set sail from Goeree for the distant Cape of Good Hope with two men on board who happened to have identical names. Both were Pierre Jourdan; both came not only from Provence, but from the same tiny district of Provence - the Luberon. In fact, they came from two villages within walking distance of each other, namely Cabrières d'Aigues and the hamlet of Belle Etoile some 500 yards outside St. Martin de la Brasque. The two men were wholly unrelated going back at least four generations.

Once at the Cape, Suzanne, daughter of Pierre de Cabrières, married Jean, son of the brother of Pierre Jourdan de Belle Etoile. However, the histories at the Cape managed to confuse the two immigrants and merged their children under the name of only one man. In reality Pierre de Cabrières lived in the very French Drakenstein district and was a strong Protestant churchman. Pierre de Belle Etoile lived in Cape Town, where his daughter married Mochamat Dayan, the son of the Rajah of Tambora and his wife, the daughter of Sheik Yussuf. Mochamat had converted to Christianty soon before and had been baptised David Sultania. …

In this regard. please see the Discussion and the Jourdan Project about the confusion between the two Pierre Jourdaan SV/PROGs, and hence, whose brother the SV/PROG Jean Jourdaan is. I’ve locked down the fields on all of them to keep them safe from accidental mash ups. Everyone just yell if you want to add new info -the idea is to keep safe not prevent other research work.
