Children

Married 18 November 1743, Drakenstein8

Johannes

Christened 4 August 1709, Cape Town9
Died January 177910
Originally thought to be the youngest child.
Born between 1710 - 1711, Cape of Good Hope (date assumed) died January 1779 will dated 4 January 1779 and filed 28 January 1779
Notes: In their joint will of 1779, the couple is described as: den b˙rger Johannes Smith Jacobusz: en desselfs huisvrouw Catharina Magdalena Mares.
Their property is left to the children of their brothers and sisters (met versoek van 't ˙ijtterste ben[e]ficirie der neefkens) with a specific bequest of 200 Rixdollars to Floris Johannes Slabbert, soontje van Johannes Slabert Gideonsz:
De Villiers / Pama gives the marriage date as 29.11.1743. If this date is correct, then the parties were presumably born before circa 1723.
This means that Johannes Smit cannot be the youngest child of Jacobus Smit and E lizabeth Slabbert as given in DeV/P and, given the fact that Elisabeth Slabbert , in her will of 1756, lists Jan Smit at the head of her children, his most likely date of birth would appear to be around 1710 or 1711.
Johannes Smit and Catharina Mares were witnesses to the baptism of their niece Aletta Catharina Smit, daughter of his brother, Alewijn Smit and Engela Helena van Niekerk on 30th July 1769 at Swartland.

Alewijn

Christened 23 June 1734, Cape Town
Died 25 January 1787, Stellenbosch, Cape23
Occupation: Boer/Farmer
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.
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 be Alewyn Smith Jacobuszoon.
For this and other reasons (see Alewyn Smit de oude <http://www.ballfamilyrecord s.co.uk/smit/I003.html>) 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.
His will was dated 9 April 1774 and filed 12 February 1788.
