There is a contradiciton in the surviving documentary
records. There is a baptism for Adrianus, son of Arij van Wijk and
Cornelia Helmes in the Stellebosch baptismal register, dated
25 December 1701, and also a reference in the will that Cornelia
Helmes drew up in 1720 with her last husband, which lists her
children thus: Rolof, Aletta, Willem, Sara, Adriaan, Maria, Catarina
and Hester VanWijk. This agrees with with the baptismal evidence.

Unfortunately the only reference to him which gives his age is one
in the will of his father and mother dated 1713, which reads thus:
Roelof aged 18, Aletta 17, Willem 16, Sara 15, Maria 9, Adrianus 8,
Catrina 3, and Hester 6 months, which conflicts with the two other
references, one earlier and one later than this latter one. In this
list of 1713, some of the childrens ages are spot on with their dates
of baptism, but Sara and Adriaans would appear to be wrong. I
have taken the baptism and the later reference as indicating that
there was only one child Adriaan and that he was born c. 1701.

Details of his family from the Deceased Estate Accounts of Willem
van Wijk d'oude, 1771-72 and those of Sara Fourie also dated 1771-72.
