Willem Schalks van der Merwe

Barend Burger

Marritie Willemsdr Schalk

Willem Burger 1
farmer 2
of Houd Constant, Vier en Twintig Rivieren 3
born Cape of Good Hope 4
died circa 1731 5
Inventory of Estate dated 12 July 1731
at Vier en twintig Rivieren
I have assumed that he was the child of Barend Burger and Marritje
Willemsdr Schalk. See notes.

This family is reconstructed from the two wills of Elsje van der Merwe
dated 1738 and 1747, the estate inventory of Willem Burger 1731 and
the estate accounts of Anna Provo, widow of Schalk Willemsz van
der Merwe 1740.

Andries Burger attended the estate inventory of 1731 to oversee the
interests of the children, while Jacobus van der Merwe attended for
the widow. Andries, in his will dated 1727 named his brother, the famer
Willem Burger, as one of the guardians of his children.

Their farm, 'Houd Constant', is listed in the inventory of 1731.
