Cornelis Bezuidenhout

M, #7088, b. 27 February 1713, d. September 1783
Father-Putative*Wynand Wynandsz Bezuidenhout b. 1 Jul 1674, d. b 26 Oct 1723; Four of the children (Wynand, Pieter, Cornelis and Aletta) born to Gerbrecht Boshouwer prior to her marriage in December 1717 to Wynand Wynandsz Bezuijdenhout appeared not to have been formally acknowledged as his biological children during his lifetime. However, there was a longterm de facto relationship between the parents prior to their marriage; and the four children all apparently used the family name in marriages and baptisms; one child, Wynand, was evidently named for this father.1,2
Mother*Gerbrecht Boshouwer1 b. 15 Oct 1684, d. May 1772
