Family

Children
  • Johanna van de Caep b. b 31 Jul 1695; I am assuming the same women gave birth to children spaced 18 months apart ... the birthing pattern at the time averaged about two years (give or take) between children5
  • Manuel van de Caep b. 16 Dec 1696; I am assuming the same women gave birth to children spaced 18 months apart ... the birthing pattern at the time averaged about two years (give or take) between children4
Duplicate?*It is possible that Margrita van Madegasker and Margriet van Madegasker are the same individual. It would not be that unusual for the scribe to have included the same individual twice in the same group of baptisms.2
