JONES PITTAWAY SMITHSON FAMILY TREE


This was a really interesting bit of my search…
took me back quite far… and took me all night, it was great fun and hope I got the right branch of the family here !?

Most of the informations I came across came from these sites :
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com
www.familysearch.org
ancestry.com

amongst other… who's links can be found in the text.

Once again, if you have other
or more exact informations please send them to me
so that I may keep my family tree growing slowly. Thanks ;-) DJ

ID: I327
Name: Jacobus STEIJN
Given Name: Jacobus
Surname: Steijn
Title: (*Patroniem)*
Sex: M
Birth: 1683 in Stellenbosch, Cape, South Africa 1 2 3
Christening: 29 Aug 1683 Cape Town, Cape, South Africa 4 5 3 6
Death: Y
Note:

Jacobus was the actual progenitor (stamvader) of the Steyn family in South Africa. He was adopted by Douwe Steyn and was given the ancestral number b1 by Pama II.
No-one is exactly sure who his father was. He was adopted by Douwe Gerbrandts Steyn when he married his mother, Maria Lozee. He then took on the surname Steijn. He was baptised in 1683 (according to De Villiers) or 1685 (according to Heese). If he was indeed baptised in 1685, there is a possibility that Douwe was his father and that it was a forced marriage.
There has also been some speculation that his father might have been the father of Alexandrina (Sandrina) Maxwell, whose husband bought Maria as slave.
He was a free burgher and later a butcher.
De la Fontaine describes him as a poor man. 4 7 3 6
