Sara Jansz:
died circa 1714
Dorothea Oelofsz
Johanna Catharina Campher 1
born 1707
baptized 19 June 1707, Stellenbosch 2
died circa 1746 3
She was baptised Anna Catharina, an illegitimate child. Dr J.Hoge,
in his 'Bydraes tot die Genealogies van Ou Afrikaanse Families,
A.A.Balkema, 1958, says that she is the same person who was later
known as Johanna Catharina Campher. This sort of confusion,
probably of hearing on the part of the koster, is not unusual in the
baptismal registers.

In the church register, the minister recorded that, during the wedding
ceremony, she held in her arms a child who, that same day, had been
baptised Katharina, in order to legitimise her, and that between the
couple stood another child whose name was not known to him.

Katharina van Wijk 1728-before 1746
born 1728
baptized 2 January 1729, Drakenstein 9
died before 1746 10

Notes: She was baptised at the same church service
at which her parents were married and was held on her
mother's arm in order to make her legitimate. This is a
custom recorded several times in the Drakenstein church

born 1730 11
baptized 7 May 1730, Drakenstein 12
died before 1739, (assumed)

Notes: He is not mentiond in the inventory drawn
up after her mother's death in 1746. He presumably
died before 1739 when another child was baptised

his heirs are named as his brothers and sisters or

no surviving children.
