In the will of Jannetje "Jeanne, Johanna, Jannetjie, Jean" Becker formerly de Klerck aka de Klerck, le Clercq, Gauch, Gauche, Gouws, Bekker, de Klerk, le Klerk, Klerk there is a sentence referring to: "Ook Johanna de Maaken, dogter van Johanna de Clercq, getroud met Hercules du Pres - 199 Riksdaalders 22."

There is (as yet) no evidence of another daughter by that name or husband to Jannetje by that name, yet in the will from which the above excerpt stems, indicates some relationship. A profile for her has been created (De_Maker-5).

It could be that this Hercules (du Preez-181) could be the person mentioned above, or this one (du Preez-71).. It seems more reasonable that the last one would fit the father ....

I'm going to search for baptismal records for her (De_Maker-5). Perhaps someone could provide extra information ...
