1756 16 Junij Is getrouwt: Stephanus Gous, van Cabo de Goede Hoop, burger aan Swellendam, jongman. - met Catharina Hepnar, van Cabo voornt. jonge dogter. NGK Kaapstad.

The children and grandchildren of André Gauch and Johanna de Clercq:

b3 Pieter Gous, born circa 1692-1693 at the Cape, died circa 1730 farmer of De Doorn Rivier, over 't Roode Sand x Anna Oosthuisen 4 May 1721 Stellenbosch ( born at the Cape, died circa December 1745 (date of inventory) she married secondly Gerrit van Emmenes, 1 April 1731, Drakenstein. De Villiers / Pama and SAG both list what appears to be a spurious daughter named Anna for this couple, but I have been unable to find any evidence of her existence. So far as I can establish there were only the following four children:

b3.c1 Johanna Gous, baptised 25 April 1723 Drakenstein, died circa July 1794 xMatthijs Strijdom 11 October 1739 Drakenstein farmer, died before 1758 xx Ockert Brits 16 April 1758 Drakenstein .She had children with both husbands.

b3.c2 Dorothea Gous, baptised 26 November 1724 Stellenbosch according to SAG she married Willem Botha (Tulbagh, VC 664, marriages, page 18, 23 May 1762) and they had four children.

b3.c3 Pieter Gous, baptised 6 July 1727 Drakenstein of De Voorbaad, situated at the Swarteberg x Magdalena Brits 5 November 1752 Tulbagh I found no evidence from wills or other documents that the Pieter Gous baptised 1727 was the husband of Magdalena Brits, so I checked out the baptisms of their all their children for the clues provided by baptismal witnesses. The witnesses at the baptism of their first child were Johanna Gous and Matthijs Strijdom, the sister and brother-in-law of the Pieter Gous who was born 1727 to Pieter Gous and Anna Oosthuijsen; those of the second child were Johannes Oosthuijsen and Anna Botha, brother of Anna Oosthuijsen and his wife, uncle and Aunt of the Pieter Gous born 1727; those of the third child were Dorothea Gous and Ockert Brits, she the sister of the Pieter Gous born 1727 and the second husband of Johanna Gous, sister of Pieter Gous born 1727. It seems pretty certain to me, therefore, that this is a correct identification. Beyond their baptisms, I have not investigated their children.

b3.c4 Sara Gous, baptised 21 August 1729 Cape Town according to the SAG, vol 2, page 494, she married Willem Goosen (Cape Town marriage register, VC 621, page 59, 31st August 1749) and they had eight children.

b4 Sara Gous, born circa 1694 or 1695, died circa December 1722 x Christiaan Gobrecht, SV/PROG [Christiaan Gobrechts], farmer, died circa 1731 (date of inventory) they had just the one child, Andries Gobrechts, born circa September 1722

b5 Johanna Gous, baptised 25 September 1695 Drakenstein, died before June 1698

b6 Andries Gous, born circa May 1698, died circa June 1735 farmer of De Melkhouteboom, on the Duijvenhoks River x Johanna Conterman 14 May 1719 Drakenstein she married secondly Jan La Grange, circa 1735 or 1736 (there are no entries for this period in the Drakenstein marriage registers).

b6.c1 Pieter Gous, born circa 1719, died 18 January 1790 Waveren x Aletta Vorster 25 November 1742 Drakenstein born circa 1722 at the Cape, and died 20 July 1798 Waveren Please see the article mentioned earlier in the introduction to this family tree for my reasoning in allocating this family to this point of the tree, which I consider their correct location. Their children, so far as I can see, are exactly as laid out in SAG and De Villiers / Pama.

b6.c2 Andries Gous, baptised 5 January 1721 Drakenstein x Anna Magdalena Vosloo 9 September 1742 Drakenstein

b6.c2d1 Andries Gous, baptised 16 December 1744 Tulbagh

b6.c2d2 Johannes Stephanus Gous, baptised 31 March 1748 Stellenbosch The NAAIRS online index suggests (but I have not seen the documents concerned) that he died circa 1792 and that his wife, Anna Magdalena Vosloo died circa 1810 (MOOC 7/1/37, 24 and MOOC 7/1/59, 62). The Cape Death Notifications (MOOC 6, volume2, page 49) lists her death under the district of Swellendam during the year 1794, no date attached.

b6.c3 Barend Gous, baptised 25 April 1723 Drakenstein, died circa January 1741

b6.c4 Johanna Gous, baptised 8 July 1725 Cape Town x Wessel Pretorius, farmer of Hollebak, over the Duijvenhoxrivier died circa 1752 (date of inventory) xx Jan Vosloo 26 November 1752 Stellenbosch died circa 1756 (date of inventory) xxx Jan Lasch 15 October 1769 Tulbagh. She appears to have had children by all three husbands.

b6.c5 Sara Gous, born circa 1727 at the Cape, died circa 1797 x Claas de Bruijn 9 March 1745 Tulbagh born at the Cape, died before 1797 They appear to have had no children.

b6.c6 Stephanus Gous, baptised 25 September 1729 Cape Town of De Elands Valleij, at the Swarte Berg x Catharina Huppenaar 16 June 1756 Cape Town (see ****** below) baptised 2 September 1736 at Drakenstein, Father: Frederik Huppenaar Mother: Catharina Hofman .We have seen earlier that it could not have been Stephanus Gous, the son of Steven Gous (b1c1), who married Catharina Huppenaar, as averred by SAG and De Villiers / Pama, since he did not survive (or leave surviving heirs) to be named as an heir in his mother’s will of 1759, having most probably died as an infant. We have also seen that Steven Gous (b1) died around 1758 and was survived by his wife, Catharina Bok, so that he could not have been Catharina Huppenaar’s husband. This leaves as the only other candidate Stephanus Gous (b6.c6). I have, in addition, checked the baptismal witnesses for his first two children (I have not been able to examine details of the baptisms of his later children as I do not currently have access for the appropriate dates to the registers where they were presumably recorded, possibly Cape Town or Drakenstein). The witnesses recorded were; for the first child, Andries, baptised 7 November 1756 at Tulbagh, Johanna Conterman and Jan le Grange, the child's paternal grandmother with her second husband; for the second child, Catharina, baptised 17 December 1758 at Tulbagh, Catharina Hofman and Willem Landman, maternal grandmother of the child with her second husband. Again, this is slim evidence, but I believe that mine is the correct interpretation. SAG lists a good number of other children as well but I have not investigated them.
