Bartholomeus Jansz Coopman 1
blacksmith 2
born Utrecht 3
He first appears at the Cape in 1688 at his marriage to Engeltje Cornelissen
van der Bout, one of the eight orphan girls from Rotterdam who arrived at the
Cape in March of that year.

In 1693 they are listed with three children although I can only find baptisms
of two up to this year, in 1695 with 4 children although only 3 baptisms to that
date. Would the other child be Allardus Bartholomeus Coopman?

Bartholomeus Jansz was recorded as a widower at his marriage in 1688.
There are two marriages in the Utrecht registers for a Bartholomeus Jansz and
several children baptised, but I have not been able to find one for Alardus.

In the monsterollen, dated 31 December 1695, there is a short list of free
labourers who are housed with others (Vrijknegten die bij anderen gehuijsvest
zijn). Bartholomeus Jansz Koopman is listed amonst these.

In 1700 he paid f.3 for the burial of a child (Malan, Ockert, Verlore Dokumentasie
oor die Gemeente Stellenbosh, in Capensis : Bartholomeus Koopman voor
een kind f.3

I cannot find any record of him after the 1705 muster roll.

married 11 October 1688 at Stellenbosch 4

( according to the church register entry,
he was a widower at the time of his marriage.)
