|children of Willem Janse van Rensburg and Hester Burger|
|Willem Janse van Rensburg 1763-circa 1818|
born 1763 6
baptized 3 April 1763, Tulbagh 7
died circa February 1818 8
Notes: In his parents' will dated 1800 he was described as both deaf
and dumb and entrusted to the care of his brother Hendrik Petrus,
himself described as deaf but otherwise well.
He was left the slave Piet van der Caab by his parents.
When he died in 1818 his heirs were his brothers and sisters, or if
they had already died, like his brother Nicolaas Jacobs, their children.
It can therefore be assumed that he left no children of his own. The
slave, Piet van de Kaap, was still with him. (MOOC 8/37, 23 - 1818)
