Lots of database issues here:

Warning: Check the dates.

  1. A parent should not have died before they were 12 years old.
  2. A mother's death date should not be before one of her children's birth dates.
  3. A parent's death date should not be more than 120 years before one of their children died. This would mean the child lived to be over 120.
  4. A marriage date should not be after a spouse's death date.

Refer Hogot Baptism for the record of the baptism of her son Jacques Hugot for the correct LNAB recorded.

On 6 Jan 2015 at 18:36 GMT Johan Rossouw wrote:

Siblings of Anna baptised by French ministers have correct LNAB. Refer baptisms for:
  1. 1698 Marthe Rousseau-301
  2. 1701 Gabriel Rousseau-315
  3. 1707 Daniel Rousseau-454
  4. 1700 Pierre Rousseau-314
  5. 1696 Elizabeth Rousseau-309

It stands to reason that Pierre Rousseau would have also baptised his firstborn with the correct LNAB of Rousseau. Dutch record entries of the period range from Russar, Russow, Roussoux, Russouw, etc. and are thus not reliable as LNAB. Fellow South African Rossouw family members would search their relations under either Rossouw or Rousseau, as they are normally only aware of these two historical versions of the spelling of our Surname.

I'm currently busy researching exactly when the LNAB changed from Rousseau to Rossouw. I've found that this is tied directly with the official language police of the time.

Shortly after 1700 only Dutch was used by most of the French descendants. The grandchildren of Pierre Rousseau almost all baptised their children with the Dutch Rossouw version, with the exception of one branch (that I could trace to date) that carried on with the original French spelling for some generations.

I have to go with what we have. The faulty Dutch transcriptions (goes for all the other baptismal records of the French church of that period as well). Any more information on the Bishop and I could perhaps start a search here (have loads of connections) and speak Dutch fluently and have a basic understanding of French. Am a librarian as well.

The lady that did the inquest recovered as much information as possible in order to recover the lost records. This diary was one of the alternative records she recovered. Earlier and later records recorded by Bilingual French/Dutch Drakenstein ministers and "sieketroosters" shows the surname as Rousseau in it's French form. Only Dutch were allowed in schools and official occasions at the time. Later French wasn't even allowed in church anymore. When the children and grandchildren lost their French language skills the surname changed to the Dutch/Afrikaans Rossouw.

Rousseau-238 en Russouw-6 is the same person. The more correct LNAB spelling of the two is, however, not Russouw but Rousseau.

The baptism records of this period from Drakenstein was lost. An enquist was launched shortly after the missing records were noticed and it was discovered that a bishop at the time took the records with him when he left for Europe! He refused to return the records and most are still missing. The image this baptism was confirmed from is the personal diary of the Dutch minister at the time in Drakenstein. The surnames in his diary were thus mostly the Dutch versions of the French spelling for his personal reference if needed later. The minister wrote French names and surnames as it sounded to his Dutch ear.

Rousseau-238 and Russouw-6 appear to represent the same person because: Same data Russouw-6 has the correct spelling of the LNAB though on the baptismal record
