|Jacobus Hendrik Smit 1
born 1 March 1785 2
baptized 3 April 1785, Swartland 3
died 27 April 1829 4
| His son Jacobus Hendrik, aged 9, is mentioned as the sole surviving child|
of the late Helena Antonia Louw and her husband Jacobus Hendrik Smit,
in the Estate accounts of her parents in 1818.
The other children come from the death notice of his mother, 1843. The
name of their mother is not stated there.
The two children, Jacobus and Maria are stated to be of age, the others
minors, in the Distribution accounts of the Estate Margaretha Wilhelmina
Louw, Weduwee van wylen Jacobus Hendrik Smit (Alewyn’s zoon), 1844.
I have followed the order of the children as given in the Distribution
accounts (1844) above, whereas the death notice of Maria Elisabeth Louw
(1861) has a different order.
The dates of his marriages given do not always tally between the church
registers (transcripts provided to me) and 'Dit Boekje hoort Jacobus
Hendrik Smit'. In each case I have chosen the date that fell on a Sunday
since this was the usual (but not invariable) day for weddings.
