Birth*Anna Sophia Hörsel was born before 5 August 1706 in de Caep de Goede Hoop.2
BaptismAnna Sophia Hörsel was baptized on 5 August 1706 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Drakenstein, de Caep de Goede Hoop. The baptism was witnessed by Anna Maria de Leeuw and Francois Bastiaans. The child is not named in the baptism record, but this must be the baptism of Anna Sophia ... her parents died not long after, they had only two other children whose baptisms are recorded, and the date fits the common birthing pattern of the period, i.e. children born more or less two years apart.2
Marriage*She married Jan Robbertz, son of Robert Jansz van Hoorn and Catharina Cornelisz, on 4 June 1730 Cape Town, de Caep de Goede Hoop.3
Death*She died circa February 1758.4
