Arnoldus Willemsz Basson
died 1691
Angela van Bengale
died circa 1720
Willem Basson 1
born 1670 2
baptized 31 August 1670, Cape Town 3
died circa June 1713, at the Cape 4
The opgaaf returns of 1692 and 1695 list he and Helena Clement as
resident in Drakenstein, but by 1700 they had moved to Cape Town.
At the time of their deaths they had a house in the Table Valley
(Cape Town) and also two farms, one homestead, at Hout Bay, both
pretty well equipped, but that in Cape Town by far the better
furnished, so they presumably lived principally in Cape Town.

He and his wife presumably died in the smallpox epidemic that
raged at the Cape during June, July and August 1713.

Judging from the opgaaf returns, they had at least one daughter
in addition to the three sons for whom we have baptisms. She was
probably born 1694 or 1695 and since the return for 1712 still lists
them with one daughter it looks as though she too died in the small
pox epidemic of 1713.

They left two children, named in the inventories as their two minor
children Arnoldus and Matthijs Basson.
