BirthOrigin*Sara was from Oost-Souburg, Walcheren, Zeeland, and may have been born there circa 1650.1,2,3 
Marriage*She married Pieter Abraham(se) de Clercq, son of Abraham de Clercq and Adriaenken Joos Onoff, circa 1669 probably in Serooskerke, Zeeland.4
 
MarriageShe married Guillaume du Toit, son of PN du Toit, on 16 May 1688 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.2,5
 
Death*She died before 9 April 1714 de Caep de Goede Hoop.6
 
Inventory*Sara's estate was inventoried on 9 April 1714 de Caep de Goede Hoop.6
LiquidDist Between 3 May 1714 and 30 September 1716 a liquidation and distribution account was prepared in the estate of Sara Couchet Cabo de Goede Hoop. The inventory named Abraham le Clercq, Pieter Becker, Jannetje de Clercq, Guilliam Oberholster, Joannes Oberholster and Johanna Barbara Oberholster as benefitting from the estate. Pieter Becker was named beneficiary as the husband of Jannetje de Clercq, and the Oberholster siblings inherited through their deceased mother, Helena du Toit. The fact that Anna de Clercq, who was alive at the time, is as not named as a beneficiary is telling and adds to the evidence that she was not a legitimate daughter of Abraham de Clercq.7
