Willem van Wijk 1
of Sandwijk, in Drakensteijn 2
born Ingen 3
died 1702, (bet 23 January and 31st March) 4
He arrived at the Cape, as a soldier in the employ of the Dutch East India
Company, in 1671 aboard the ship croonde Vrede

He first appears at the Cape as a Company servant, working in the
Company's Garden in 1672 and on the 6 April 1678 he left the Company's
Service and became a Freeburger, working in partnership with Gerrit Teunisz
and later with Hans Erntrout. (see my timeline for Willem van Wijk).

Two children by his first wife are recorded in the baptismal
registers of the Cape Town congregation; Arie and Jannetie.
The inventory taken after the death of his first wife, dated the
10th March 1695, notes that she left two minor children. These
are named in the Weeskamer record dated 2 September 1712
as Arij and Gerrit van Wijk, so presumably Jannetie had died
before 1695.

The children born of his second marriage are also listed in the
1712 Weeskamer note mentioned above, as Maria, Anna and
Willem van Wijk.

For his wives and children see my notes on Trijntje Harmensz,
his second wife, and for a general discussion of the early
Van Wijks see my notes.
