Barend Pieterz Blom
Circa 1666-1720

Catharina "de Beer"

Geertruida Blom

Born Circa 1701, Drakenstein 1
Died Circa 18 July 1730, Cape Province, South Africa 2


Geertruida's baptism appears to be one of those in the missing pages of the Drakenstein Baptism book. The Muster Roll of 1702 [#1] shows "Barend Pieterse Blom & Catrijn deBeer 3 k". So, she has to have been the third child, as the baptisms of the other two are documented. Since Pierre was baptised in April 1699, we add a typical two years for the next child, Geertruida. In this way we arrive at 1701 as her approximated year of birth. The 1702 Muster Roll was taken on 23 January 1702. So, we know her date of birth is before that.
