Den 10 Dito (December) aen Stellenbosch een kindt gedoopt waer van vader is Christoffel Snijman de moeder Margaretha Savoi, als getuijge stondt Maria Maddalena La Clerq ende genamet Jacobus Christoffel, transcribed by Richard Ball, Norfolk, England, (May 2006), Genealogical Society of South Africa, eGSSA Branch http://www.eggsa.org/ Lorna:
    Pierre Simond weier om Jacobus op 19.11.1690 in die Drakenstein se kerk te doop omdat hy nie voor die tyd ingelig is oor die name van die peetouers nie. Jacques de Savoye, peetvader, was onder sensuur omdat hy glo bankrot gespeel het in Europa. Simond se weiering het 'n groot kabaal ontlok van die groepie wat voor die kansel gestaan het. (Sien J.L.M. Franken se `Die Hugenote aan die Kaap'). Hereinafter cited as Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Kerken Boek (Bapt.).
