# The parents of Coenraad Jansz Visser

I have assumed, from his patronymic, and the fact that his will states
that he was born at the Cape, that he was the same Coenraad Visser
baptised at the Cape on 8 April 1663, the son of Jan Coenraets Visser.
His age as given in the same will of 1710 (fifty) does not match the date
of his baptism but since the age of his wife, in the same will, is too old
by two years, we can assume that his is too, and in that case the match
seems reasonable.

The only apparently related baptismal witness of their children then is
Jannetie Tielemans, his sister-in-law.
