Information for this family from Estate inventory taken after
the death of Barend Burger in 1770 and from, the will of Hester
Smit and Bartholomeus van den Vyver dated 1784.

I have assumed that he was the child of Willem Burger and
Elsie van der Merwe who was baptised in 1717. I have no
direct documentary proof of this. The witnesses, however,
at the baptism of his first child were Elsie van der Merwe and
Schalk Willem Burger.

When he died he owed the Company five years back rent and,
according to his inventory, they owned very little in the way of
furniture and equipment, only 100 sheep, 90 cattle and 3 horses,
but they owned 11 slaves whose value made up fully one half
of the total estate of 1996 Rixdalers.
