Jean Roux may have died as early as 1683:

"Marie Jourdanne, was formerly the wife of Jean Roux, a farm worker of La Motte-d’Aigues and the son of Pierre Roux and Perrine Despine. In 1677 he had inherited a third share of his parents’ estate, the other portions going equally to his brothers Daniel and Etienne. The inheritance included buildings, vines, orchards and livestock. Jean Roux died before the close of 1683. In his will of October 14 of that year he left his house, goods and farm animals to Marie, “sa tres bien aymee fame (sic)”.151 In subsequent family settlements we learn that Marie Jourdanne had a brother-in-law Daniel Cavallier,152 a name which appears in the Lourmarin records, where there were clear links between the Roux, Cavallier and Furet families.153 Claire Cavallier (Cavalliere), who died at Lourmarin in January 1705, was refused Christian burial, “estant morte de mort subite, et nayant donne auparavant le devoir chatolique (sic)” (Source: Boucher, M. French Speakers at the Cape. Pretoria. UNISA, 1981 p 187)
