  1. [S692] Harry Booyens, "Pierre de Cabrières and Pierre de Belle Etoile", Familia (Pierre de Cabrières and Pierre de Belle Etoile) Familia 49 (3) (2012): Pierre Jourdan (father of Paul Jourdan)
    This Cabrieres d'Aigues family is peripheral to the genealogy of the South African families Jordaan. Its significance lies in the fact that it produced the Paul Jourdan who died on the ship China en route to the Cape. All references are to the records of Notary Enjoubert of Pertuis, except where otherwise indicated. The family structure was as follows:
    Pierre Jourdan
    x 12.01.1659 Susanne Foraize, daughter of Joseph & Magdalene Brette ( 3E56/252, 299)
    xx 22.10.1662 Magdalene Pellade (Pellat) (3E56/265)
    Children from the second marriage:
    Paul *ca.1666 (The prospective Cape immigrant) (3E56/299)
    Jeanne (3E56/299)
    Margarite (3E56/299)
    Magdalene bapt. 20.01.1675. Hereinafter cited as "Pierre de Cabrières and Pierre de Belle Etoile."
