Pierre Mouy sailed on the Donkervliet in 1699. With him in the settlement were Jeanne and Marie Mouy, presumably his daughters.204 Marie, born on May 15, 1685, became the wife of Francois Retif in 1700 and their youngest child, Madeleine, baptized on December 22, 1720, lived to be almost ninety-seven years of age, dying on April 10, 1817.205 C.C. de Villiers spoke of a portrait of her still in existence at Paarl in the later nineteenth century.206 The Mouys were said to have come from Saint-Amant and it has been assumed that this is Saint-Amand on the Scheldt. There are, however, other alternatives in the region: Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, near Valenciennes, Saint-Amand, in the vicinity of Arras, and on the Belgian side of the modern border, Saint-Amand, north-east of Charleroi. The family has not yet been identified in Europe, although the surname has been encountered in Dauphine.207 There are moreover many towns and villages in France named Saint-Amand, Saint-Amant or Saint-Amans, and it is possible that the Mouys came from one of them. Their inclusion in this chapter is therefore somewhat arbitrary. * Boucher.M (1981). French speakers at the Cape: The European Background. Pretoria, UNISA.
