Catharina van Bengalen
Adriaantje Gabrielsz 1
She was identified as the voordogter of Catharina, the wife
of Cornelis Claasz (Kees de Boer) by Mansell Upham in his
excellent article, The Soetkoek Syndrome, based on the
evidence of her marriage entry in the Cape Town register.
(Mansell Upham, The soetkoek syndrome, in Capensis 2/2001,
pages 27-30

I have assumed that the child with Hendrick Speldenbergh was
hers, since Elsie appears later in time in connection with this
family (see below). Rather circular reasoning, but there it is!

She also appears as a baptismal witness for her granddaughter
Ariaantie, child of her daughter Elsie Speldenbergh, in 1702. The
other witness is Robbert Jansen, husband of her half sister
Catharina Cornelisse.

In addition, her daughter, Elsie Speldenbergh, appears as a
baptismal witness at a number of the baptisms of her cousins,
children of Adriaantje Gabriels' half sisters, the children of
Kees de Boer and Catharina his wife.

In 1719 an enquiry found her poor and unable to pay her debt of
540 gulden, incurred by her husband Pieter Gerritsz.
