Sodomy, race and respectability in Stellenbosch and Drakenstein, 1689 – 1762: the story of a family, loosely defined

https://www.wikitree.com/photo.php/7/7c/Jurgen-9.pdf

This is an intriguing story about the fate of Gerrit Coetsé who was exectued on 22 September 1733. He was the grandson of Lijsbeth through her daughter Elisabeth Louisz by freed slave Louis van Bengal. It provides a good look at the strained lives of Lijsbeth and her family as they struggled to fit into Cape Huguenot/European society. Lijsbeth's own story begins on page 18.
