From her Estate Accunts and the sale of her properties on the
20th and 24th September 1728, she would appear to have had
two houses in Cape Town, one sold to Christiaan Victor and the
other to Jacobus van der Heijden, and two farms, one called
De Mosselbank on the Mosselbank River, 62 morgen 16 roeden,
original grant 18 September 16983, most recently transferred
3rd and 6th of October 1724, now sold to Gerrit van Nieuwkerken,
and the other, named Roodenburgh, described as a house and
land, lying on the Rondebosje, extending to 15 morgen and 561
square roeden, first granted on the 5th January 1660 and most
recently transferred 9th October 1713, now sold to Christoffel
Bok. This property had belonged to her father and is described
as his dwelling in the document Hendrik Plooij drew up in favour
of his daughter Willemina in 1724.

Notes: On the 21st August 1728, the Weeskamer
decided that she would be lodged with Hendrik de Vries
until her marriage with his son Jacob de Vries and that
her minor brother, Hendrik Plooij, would also go to live
with Hendrik de Vries at the cost of 6 rixdalers per month.

Wilhelmina Plooij 19 born 1716
born 1716 20
baptized 12 July 1716, Cape Town 21

Notes: On the 8th October, Jan van Nieuwkerken
applied to the Weeskamer for his wife's disabled sister,
a minor, to come and live with him and to have funds to
buy her a slave maid for her service, costs to be paid,
presumably from her inheritance, from the Weeskamer
funds. This was approved subject to notice when an
appropriate candidate was found.
(MOOC 1/6 Weeskamer Notulen, 8th October 1728)

As his wife's only other sister was already married, I
assume that it is Wilhelmina to whom this refers.

Hendrik Plooij 22 born 1719
born 1719 23
baptized 2 July 1719, Cape Town 24

Notes: After the death of his mother, circa August 1728,
he went, with the permission of the Weeskamer, to live with
Hendrik de Vries, at a charge of 6 rixdalers per month, along
with his sister Margareta Plooij, who also went to live with
Hendrik de Vries until the time of her marriage to Jacob de
Vries (Minutes of the Weeskamer 21 August 1728, MOOC 1/6)
