BirthOrigin*Jan was from Dithmarschen and was perhaps born there between 21 August 1627 and 20 August 1628. He was said to be 33 years old on 20 August 1661. He was often described in the record as from Caspel ter Maere/Mare. Caspel is cappel, i.e. church or chapel. In Dithmarschen which is largely flat marshland, churches are built in the centre of man-made hills, known as terpen, and the church towers can be seen from miles distant. The church in the town of Marne in Dithmarschen is one such example. It is possible that Marne is his birth place. My thanks to Mansell Upham for helping me develop this theory.1,2,3,4
BaptismDisprovedJan Pietersz Louw was said to have been baptized on 29 October 1628 Bovencarspel. However, the Bovenrkarspel record of baptisms for this date does not include a boy named Jan Pietersz: or Jan Broertje. There is a boy named Pieter Janszoon, and clearly therefor, the date and location for the baptism Jan Pietersz:/Jan Broertje in the SAG is incorrect.5,4 
Marriage*He married Hubbeke Reijniers circa 1650 The Netherlands.4
 
Marriage*He married Beatrix Weijman on 23 August 1661 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.1,6,4
 
Death*He died on 9 May 1691 de Caep de Goede Hoop.4

    14.5.1686 skenk Jan Pieters Louw die slavinnetjie Maria van die Kaap (7 jaar oud en in sy huis gebore) as trou geskenk aan Willem Jans van de Weerelt en sy vrou Annetje, Jansdogter (Sien Eulalie Malan se Louws van Louwvliet p.37).
