Alewijn Smit Jacobuszoon 1
farmer 2
burger of Stellenbosch 3
born 1734 4
baptized 4 July 1734, Cape Town 5
died 25 January 1787 6
will dated 9 April 1774
and filed 12 February 1788
There is no mention in the marriage register entry as to whether
he or his wife had been previously married or not, nor is there
any patronymic to indicate who his father was.

At the baptism of his daughter, Aletta Catharina, in 1769, his name
is entered as Alewijn Smit (Jacobus zoon); on the death notice of
his son, Jacobus Hendrik, he is entered as 'Alewyn Smit, Jacobus
Zoon'; in the joint will made by him and his wife in 1774 he is named
as Alewijn Smit Jacobz. and in the estate distribution file produced
by the Weeskamer on the death of his widow, Engela Helena van
Niekerk, made in July 1820, her late husband is stated to have been
Alewyn Smith Jacobuszoon.

For this and other reasons (see Alewyn Smit de oude) I have not
followed De Villiers/Pama for the parentage of this man but take
him to be b2c12, page 893.

His baptism was witnessed by Alewijn Smit and Helena Gous.

For more details on the descendants of this couple see also the
