Roelof Adriaensz van Wijk
circa 1640-before 1699
Trijntje Jans
born circa 1637
Arie van Wijk 1
farmer (1713) 2
of Stellenbosch 3
born circa 1668, Amsterdam 4
baptized 18 January 1668, Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam 5
died circa 1713
buried circa 1713, Stellenbosch 6
will dated 29 April 1713
In his will, dated 1713, he is described as having been born in
Amsterdam and being 45 years old. In the Nieuwe Kerk in
Amsterdam is recorded the baptism of 'Adrian, son of Roelof
Adriaensz van Wijk and Trijntje Jans, 18th January 1668.
(Amsterdam information kindly supplied by Bob Kernkamp).

Since Roelof van Wijk and Trijntje Jans also lived at the Cape,
I think we can safely assume that this baptism is his.

On 21st September 1688 he was granted permission to move from the
Cape to Drakenstein (1 STB 15/2).

Also in his will he is desribed as 'sick, confined to bed'. One
can speculate that in this year of Smallpox plague that this is
what he was suffering from - certainly he died in the same year.

For a general discussion of the early Van Wijks see my notes.

of 1713, so presumably died before that date.

The entry in the General Cash accounts of the Stellenbosch
Congregation for 12 Aug 1708 lists three guilders collected
for the burial of a child of Arij van Wijk. Gerrit seems the most
likely candidate. (1/STB 12, 15-18)
