Lourens Campher 1
born Werenhold 2
Notes:
Lourens Campher first appears in 1688 in the Cape District, but by 1691
he was resident in Stellenbosch (Opgaaf and Muster Rolls). A wife is not
mentioned until 1695 when he is listed along with Ansela van de Caab
and three children. From their opgaaf returns they seem not to have
been great farmers, starting with sheep and moving onto vines.

In 1702 they still had the 3 children with them but by 1709 (the next avail-
able opgaaf), just one daughter remained living with them and by 1712
she had left home too.

In 1719 the Council of Policy, in a list of unpaid debts, listed Lourens
Campher van Werenhold, stating that he was still living, that he had a farm
in 't Cleijgat, north of Clapmuts, and owed 156 gulden.
(C. 51, pp. 53-65. 21 November 1719)

I assume that their three children were Lourens, Antonetta and Jacoba
Campher, although there is no documentary proof (that I have yet
discovered). in 1705 Cornelis Campher appears for himself as a single man
in Stellenbosch on the opgaaf returns and on the 5th September 1705
Antonetta married Gerrit van der Swaan in Stellenbosch, and on the 10th
November 1711 Jacoba married Joost de Klerk, all three thus tying in well
with the statistics of the children above.

Cornelis, Antonetta and Jacoba all appear as baptismal witness for
children of one or more of the others. Given that baptismal witnesses
were, where possible, chosen from very near relations, such as grand
parents and aunts and uncles, this is a furher argument for their being
brothers and sisters.
