The children appear in the order given in the the inventory
drawn up in 1769 after the death of their father - all six
childeren were still alive in 1831 when they were listed in
the estate accounts of their deceased mother.

In 1750 he petitioned the Council of Policy, asking to be allowed
'to open a school in which to teach reading, writing and arithmetic
as well as the elements of the Reformed Religion which he pro-
(Leibbrandt, H.C.V. - Requesten (Memorials) 1715-1806, page 82n)

At the time of his death they would seem to have been farming in
a very small way in the Roggevelt, judging from the Inventory of
his goods dated 19 February 1769.

# The parents of Stephanus Buys

I have assumed that he was the Stephanus Buys born to Barend
Buys and Alida van den Berg and baptised 13th July 1727 in the
Cape Town church. Although his mother did not die until 1762 she
did not stand as witness at the baptism of any of his children, but
his sister Catharina Buys and her husband Sirke Janse, did, as
also did his sister Lacija.
