On 30.7.1960 in Johannesburg he married Beverley Coral Barnes, daughter of Louis Barnes and Maud Irene Barnes nee Beverley.  She was born on 2.10.1940 and was educated at the Diocesan School for Girls in Pretoria, where she was elected head-girl in 1957.

Christopher's career in the stock exchange started from being a messenger and clerk, through floor dealer and so on, culminating in his becoming Vice-President of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 1974-75 and President in 1976-77.  He was elected a Life Member when he came to settle in the Cape in 1985.

When he left Max Pollak & Freemantle he joined the The Board of Executers in Cape Town living in the Constantia area while the children completed their education and then moved to Franschoek, buying one of the beautiful historic homesteads there, the town where Christopher's roots stretch back through his grandmother, nine generations to the arrival of the Hugunots in 1688 and with them his original South African ancestor, Pierre Joubert, who was settled there and eventually owned a number of farms in and around Franschhoek.  It was some time after that, sadly, he cut off all ties with both his twin and the rest of the family.

There were five children of his marriage, born between 1961 and 1972 but, unfortunately, they lost a little daughter, their third child, Belinda, at 6 years of age, in 1973.  They lived at 'Springhill', Springhill Lane, Moodie Hill, Morningside after their first home was burnt to the ground.  In the Cape, they lived in Wolfe Street, Wynberg and sent their younger children to the Rudolf Steiner School for their education.
