About Sophia Schalksdochter Roberts (van der Merwe, formerly Pasman), b1 SM/PROG

There seem to have been no children born in his [Peter Robbertsz'] marriage to Sophia van der Merwe. In the opgaaf returns for 1705, 1709 and 1712 only four daughters (no sons) are listed for them, the four daughters being, of course, the children of her first marriage.

For more arguments see my article published in Familia, no 3, 2006, page 75. C.C. de Villiers, in his Geslacht Register of the 1890s, allocated them a son, Jan Robberts. The article also suggests who his parents might in fact have been.

Sy was ook bekend as "Fytjie Schalck" en was die weduwee van Rudolph Pasmann.Sy was die oudste van 13 kinders. Sophia en Peter het net een seun Jan gehad. She married (1) RUDOLPH PASMANN, married 12 Nov 1684. She married (2) PETER ROBBERTSZ, married 25 Jan 1696, * 1655, † C1741.
According to the Van der Merwe Stamouers page http://www.stamouers.com/stamouers/surnames-v-z/523-van-der-merwe-willem-schalk
"According to an article in the SA Medical Magazine, it appears that the disease Huntington's Chorea, common among some Afrikaans-speaking families, comes from Sophia van der Merwe. The ancestors of more than 200 people currently suffering from this condition have been researched and everyone can being brought back to Sophia's children from her two marriages."


bekend as Fytjie Schalk en Fytie Willem Schalks (dogter van Willem Schalk); 1980.02.11 artikel in die S.A. Mediese Tydskrif beweer dat die siektetoestand Huntingtons Chorea, wat algemeen voorkom onder sommige Afrikaanssprekende families, van haar afkomstig is. Die voorouers van meer as 200 persone wat tans aan hierdie toestand ly, (Over 200 affected individuals in more than 50 supposedly unrelated families have been found to be ancestrally related through a common progenitor in the 17th century) is nagevors en almal kan teruggevoer word tot kinders van Sophia uit haar twee huwelike. Haar broers en susters is egter glad nie betrokke nie wat kan beteken dat die siekte deur nuwe mutasie ontstaan het of dat sy 'n onegte kind was. Feit is egter dat hierdie siektetoestand vir meer as 14 generasies aan nasate van Sophia oorgedra is. Sophia kon nie haar testament teken nie terwyl haar broers en susters almal kon skryf. Dit kan moontlik toegeskryf word aan die feit dat sy Huntingtons Chorea gehad het. Sy het as weduwee van Pieter Robbertz kontrakte gesluit met die volgende persone om vir haar te werk: die seeman Jans Wolf van Tonder, die soldaat Jan Barend Schulter van Olsen, die seeman Cornelis Jacobsz Jonker van Graveland
