NotesCirca 1724 I believe the compilers of SAG incorrectly ascribed a son named Casparus Bester [var] to Andreas Bester and Johanna Bok van der Caep and that instead the individual who marrried Maria Elizabeth Swart was Caspar Bester the son of Jacobus Bester and Anna Hasselaar. He is referred to in the inventory on 3 Dec 1776 of his mother's estate.
