Overview of Family History / Progenitor Details

On 31 Dec 1687 Jean & Gabriel le Roux, Philippe Foucher & Anne Souchay, with Estienne Bruere embarked together on the VOC ship Voorschoten to settle at the Cape of Good Hope.

  • The le Roux brothers & Philippe Foucher were 2nd cousins.
  • Philippe Foucher & Estienne Bruere were second cousins.
  • Anne Souchay was the sister of the le Roux brother's sister in law.

They all became progenitors of SA lines

As far as I can see, Jean le Roux, SV/PROG 3 (born circa 1670 in Normandy, France), is not related to them.
