About Martha Rossouw, b3c4 SM

  • Pieter Rossouw
  • born circa August 1727
  • baptized October 1727, Drakenstein
  • died circa 1738

Notes: According to the inventory drawn up on 15th November 1727, after the death of Sophia van der Merwe, she left one small son aged three months, named Pieter Russou. That this child died in early 1738 is attested by the statment in the inventory drawn up 10 May 1738 after the death of his step mother, Maria Retief, which states her five children had inherited from their late half brother, Pieter Russouw, according to an act of the Weeskamer dated 21 April 1738, the sum of f808-6-9, as recorded by the act of 21 November 1727.

Both De Viliers/Pama's Geslagregister and the current edition of South African Genealogies, have this child as being the Pieter Rossouw who married Martha Nortje in 1751. Mariana Olivier, by her research into the original baptismal and estate records, has demonstrated that the Pieter Rossouw who married Martha Nortje was the son of Gabriel Rossouw the uncle of this child.


He is also not mentioned in Anne Prevost's (his grandmother) inventory dated 10 October 1740. - JS
