She and Jacob Cornelisz van Rosendael witnessed the baptism of Geertruydt Israels on 29 January 1670 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.19
She potentially witnessed the baptism of Jan Stevensz Botma de Jonge on 23 July 1670 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop, this witness has not been positively identified.20,21
She and Elsje Cloete, Willem Schalcq and Hendrick Bruylde witnessed the baptism of Feytje Shalcq on 2 November 1670 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.22
NotesMayken Hendriks van den Berg and Jacob Theunisz were according to the early Cape records from Cooltiensplaet, which also appears as Cooltjens Plaet but today there is so such place in the Netherlands. However, there is a placed named Ooltgensplaat which was a separate municipality until 1966 when it became part of Oostflakkee, which also included Den Bommel. In 2013 Oostflakkee was one of the municipalities which amalgamated to become Goeree-Oostflakkee. This couple's daughter, Cornelia Theunisz, was described in the record as from Bommel, a strong indicator that modern day Ooltgensplaat is in fact Cooltiensplaet/Cooltjens Plaet.23,24
