Birth*Eva Zaaijman was born on 10 June 1680 in Mauritius.1
Marriage*She married Herbert Jansz van der Meyden circa 1694 Mauritius. The date is estimated and is based on the fact that their daughter Caatje Jansz witnessed a baptism in 1708, so must have been at least twelve years old.2
Marriage*She married Joannis Smit, son of Jan Smit and Adriana Tol, on 20 September 1711 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, Stellenbosch.2
Inventory* On 24 February 1714 the messenger of the court, gerechts boode, Sijmon Witmond, reported to the Orphen Master Adriaan van Kervel, that items belonging to the recently deceased Eva Zaaijman and Joannis Smit were in the possession of Johann Oberholster, Cornelis Joosten van Daalen, Roelof Jonas, Andries Cuyper, Matthys Andries de Beer and Hendrik Abrahamsz de Vries as itemised in the attached memorial. However, the boode reported that De Vries had stipulated he had only a small iron pot and a tea kettle in his possession.3
