  3. [S325] Baptism Register, Palmkronieke I Baptisms, Lorna:
    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). Dit is waarskynlik dat hierdie dieselfde Maria is wat saam met Pieter van Bengale kind laat doop het op 19.5.1696 (Inskrywing No.152) en Anna en Jan ter Weerelt se trou geskenk was.
