BaptismFrancois Roussoùx was baptized on 9 September 1731 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Drakenstein, de Caep de Goede Hoop. The baptism was witnessed by Pierre du Toit and Elizabet Rousseau.

  2. [S408] Baptism Register, Drakenstein I Baptisms, Ao 1731; Den 9den 7br; Francois; Pierre Roussoùx ende Maria Retief; Pieter du Toit ende Elisabeth Retief. (I suspect in this case the scribe made an error and that the second witness was likely Elisabeth Rousseau, the wife of Pierre du Toit and sister of Pierre Rousseau.).
