|Claas Jansz van Rensburg 1
born circa 1661, Rensburg 3
died circa 1728 4
| The details for this family come from the wills of 1722 and 1758 of Maria|
van Staden and from the facsimiles of the original will and estate accounts
of this couple that appear on the wonderful Van Rensburg web site
created by André van Rensburg.
In the will of their sister, Maria van Staden, 1758, all the children of this
couple are surnamed just Jansen. This family would seem, judging from
the church registers and various signatures, to have thought of their
name as Janse or Jansen with the 'van Rensburg' as an optional extra.
This is visible right into the middle of the nineteenth century when
Willem Francois Petrus Janse van Rensburg signed himself 'W.F.P.Janze'
in the Ceres marriage register.
