Birth*Servaas de Kock was born before 17 August 1681 in Breda.3
BaptismPutativeServaas de Kock was almost certainly the individual who was baptized on 17 August 1681 Nederlands Hervormde, Breda. This is a very strong putative baptism for this individual. He is said to have arrived at the Cape in 1707 from Middelburg, which would be a logical point of embarkation for the Cape - and also to join the VOC - for an individual from Breda. Furthermore, the names of the parents Alexander and Cornelia appear among the children of Servaes deKock - he baptises a son Alexander and a daughter Cornelia. My thanks to Susan Anneveldt for bringing this to my attention.4 
Marriage*He married Susanna van Boven, daughter of Jesaias Michaelse van Booven and Levina Lijvens, on 30 March 1713 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town).5
