Hendrina van Hoetingen ter eenre en desselfs seeven soo kinderen als kinds kinderen, genaamt Hans Jurgen Coetze, Jan Coetze representerende desselfs vader Zal:[iger] Christiaan Coetze, bij de Verweckt int eerste huwelijk van voorn: Jan Coetze d’ oude en desselfs overleedene huijsvrouw ___ Dirk Coetze verweckt int tweede huwelijk, Hendrik, Maria en Jantje Coetze verweckt int derde of laaste huijwelijk met voorn: Hendrina van Hoetingen, en laastelijk het kind waar van voorn: wed: nog swanger gaet en naderhant bij de geboorte genoemt is Roelof Coetze.



    And further:

    1715

    Aan Hans Jurgen Coetze in vold: [oening] van desselfs geregtig lijke Erfportie uijt den boedel van desselfs overleden vader Competerende als bij quit: [antie] 215:15:14

    Thus the evidence we have been looking for is here: Hans Jurgen was paid his portion from the estate of his father and also the portion of the estate of his deceased minor brother Roelof.

    Jan (Hans) Jurgens was a full brother to Christiaan, from progenitor Jan Kotze's first marriage to Catharina Henneke.. Hereinafter cited as "Scott Kotze email 20190619."
