Birth*Sophia Elizabeth Gerrits was born before 28 May 1708 in de Caep de Goede Hoop.1
BaptismSophia Elizabeth Gerrits was baptized on 28 May 1708 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town). The baptism was witnessed by Otto Ernst van Graan and Rebecca van de Caep.2 
Monsterrollen and Opgaafrollen (Muster and tax rolls)April 1719 Susanna van Mombasa was enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in Cape District, with one son and three daughters, namely Hermanus Gerrits, Hilletie Gerrits, Maria Gerrits and Sophia Elizabeth Gerrits. I have assumed these to be the children enumerated with her because they all appear elsewhere in the record at later dates. As of October 2016, I have not yet identified her youngest daughter, Susanna, in the record after her baptism.3
