Beatrix Wijman 1
of Aen het Ronde Bosje, Cape District 2
born circa 1640, Utrecht 3
died circa July 1722, (will filed) 4
will dated 15 November 1721
and filed July 1722 5
In August 1713 she drew up a contract whereby she would in
future be cared for by her daughter-in-law, Maria van Brakel,
for which the latter would enjoy the use and income from the
Beatrix's farm or homestead situated on the Liesbeek River,
and also the right to purchase the property upon her death.

23 August 1661 (assumed), at the Cape 6

( the couple's intention to marry is recorded in the Diary of the Commander
of the Cape, Van Riebeeck, on Saturday, 20th August 1661. Presumably
becaue the only minister was on the ship 'De Jonge Prins', then in harbour
but due to sail, Van Riebeeck commanded their bans to be read over the
next three days, and said they should be married on the following Tuedsay
(23rd) after the predikant, Godefridus van Akendam, had given a sermon
on land. The ceremony itself is not recorded in the Diary.)

Claas Louw born 1673
born 1673 22
baptized 24 October 1673, Cape Town 23

Notes: It would seem that he had died before
his father's inventory was drawn up on 12th March 1694,
since that document mentions four children and the other
four would all seem to have been living at this date.

There is a Claas Louw listed in the muster rolls of 1695 in
the district of Stellenbosch, but I suspect that this is just
a misreading or writing of Callis Louw, an unrelated free
man at the Cape during that time.

Margaretha Louw 24 born 1677
born 1677, at the Cape 25
baptized 18 April 1677, Cape Town 26

Notes: According to Hoge's Personalia of the
Germans at the Cape, she married Johannes Rauchganz
on the 9th December 1691. They made a joint will in 1694
which was filed in 1699, I don't know which of the pair
would have been the deceased at that date. Hoge lists no
children for this couple.

 married 9 October 1691 Cape Town 28

Joannes Ruijpgens 27
born Hamel 29

Jacobus Louw 1679-1713
born 1679, at the Cape
baptized 21 January 1680, Cape Town

 married 22 January 1702 Cape Town

Maria van Brakel 30 born 1677
