NGK (Cape Town) Baptisms 1665-1695NGK (Cape Town) Baptisms 1665-1695
Last Edited03/05/2015
Birth*Aeltje Wilhelmse was born before 20 June 1667.1
 
BaptismAeltje Wilhelmse was baptized on 20 June 1667 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop. The baptism was witnessed by Joan Verhagens, Anneke Noormans and Jan Coenraad Visser.1 
MarriageShe married Arij Simonsz circa 1690 Mauritius. I have assumed they married on Mauritius.2
 
Death*She died between 24 April 1711 and 27 September 1718, she was named as beneficiary to her husband in 1711, but not to her mother in 1718.3
 
(Beneficiary) InventoryAeltje Wilhelmse benefitted from the estate of Arij Simonsz on 24 April 1711 as specified in the inventory.2 
Baptisms - WitnessAeltje Wilhelmse and Cristoffel Luders witnessed the baptism of Willemtie de Brak on 30 October 1701 Nederduitser Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.4
Monsterrollen and Opgaafrollen (Muster and tax rolls)After 20 June 1667 Wilhelm Wilhelmse van Deventer and Maria Jansz Visser were enumerated in the muster roll. They were recorded with one unnamed child, presumably their daughter Aeltje Wilhelmse.5
Wilhelm Wilhelmse van Deventer and Maria Jansz Visser appeared on the muster roll of 1670. they were recorded with one employee, Hendrick Schaeck, and one unnamed child. Even though they had baptised a second daughter, Jannitje, in 1669, she does not again appear in the record, so I have assumed the child with whom they were enumerated was their eldest daughter Aeltje Wilhelmse.6
In 1673 Maria Jansz Visser appeared on the muster roll in 1673. She is recorded without her husband who had absconded after killing a 'Hottentot'. Two unnamed children are recorded with her, one of whom must have been Aeltje Wilhelmse. By then she had also had two sons, Hendrick Wilhelmse and Willem Wilhelmse, one of whom must have been the second child.7
In 1674 Maria Jansz Visser appears to be enumerated alone in the monsterrol under the name Schotze Marie - my thanks to Mansell Upham for pointing out that a process of elimination led him to this conclusion. Ockert Corneliszoon Olivier with whom she was engaged in an extra-marital relationship was enumerated separately and also alone. Her children Aeltje Wilhelmse and Cornelis Ockers appear to be enumerated among three unnamed children in the guardianship of Maria Hendricksz Winkelhausen and Pieter Janssen van Westhuisen under the entry 'd' Lieren [sic] 3 k[inders]. I am not sure who the third child was.8
In 1675 Maria Jansz Visser appears to be enumerated alone in the monsterrol Cape district under the name Schotze Marie - my thanks to Mansell Upham for pointing out that a process of elimination led him to this conclusion. Ockert Corneliszoon Olivier with whom she was engaged in an extra-marital relationship was enumerated separately and also alone. Her three unnamed children Aeltje Wilhelmse, Cornelis Ockers and Dina Olivier appear to be enumerated in the guardianship of Maria Hendricksz Winkelhausen and Pieter Janssen van Westhuisen under the entry 'd' Lieren [sic] 3 k[inders].9
Maria Jansz Visser appears to be enumerated alone in the monsterrol of 1677 under the name Schotze Marij - my thanks to Mansell Upham for pointing out that a process of elimination led him to this conclusion. Ockert Corneliszoon Olivier with whom she was engaged in an extra-marital relationship was enumerated with his brother Hendrick Cornelisz Olivier and his two unnamed children, presumably Cornelis Ockers and Dina Olivier. Her oldest daughter Aeltje Wilhelmse may still have been in the care of Maria Hendricksz Winkelhausen and Pieter Jansz van der Westhuijsen.10
