About Marie Grillion, SM/PROG

Boucher's French Speakers at the Cape pp110-111

"After his arrival at the Cape Malherbe married Marie Grillon. Although she did not sail on the Voorschooten she was evidently from the same part of France as the settlers aboard that vessel and it is more than likely that she accompanied the Rétifs and Pierre Rousseau from the United provinces. Marie and Jacques Grillon were among those who returned to the reformed faith at delft on October 19, 1687 and the refugee Jérémie Grillon who married at The Hague had family connections in the nearby Dutch town and links with the Rousseaus through his wife Anne Bottereau. Church registers for Mer and Lorges in the Blésois reveal further connections between these families and also between the Grillons and the Baschés. Jérémie Grillon is known to have have come from the Orléanais and it is therefore reasonable to suppose that Marie Grillon's home was originally at Mer or a village in its vicinity. The baptism of Marie Grillon is recorded at Lorges on September 28, 1659, the daughter of Isaac Grillon and Anne Champion. A Marie Grillon of Mer died in 1674".

Also according to Pieter Coertzen, The Huguenots of South Africa 1688-1988 (28 Wale Street, Cape Town: Tafelberg Publishers Limited, 1988), p. 161. Marie Grillion was born in 1670 in Mer, Orléanais, France.
