Willem Janse van Rensburg
Hester Burger
Willem Burger Barendz:
Maria Susanna du Toit
circa 1752-circa 1786
Nicolaas Jacobus Janse van Rensburg
1770-before 1813
Willemina Maria Burger
Johannes Petrus Janse van Rensburg 1
of Leeuwenkuil, Koue Bokkeveld 2
born 25 October 1809 3
baptized 18 February 1810, Tulbagh 4
died after 9 July 1877 5
will dated 18 April 1876 6
He is listed as Pieter Johannes in the will of his mother, Willemina
Maria Burger and Rasmus Pieter Erasmus and also on the death
notice of W.M.Burger (in fact the latter list seems to me merely
copied from the former). Perhaps he was known as Pieter or per-
haps this is a notary's mistake.

The farm Leeuwenkuil was a quitrent grant made in 1821 to Rasmus
Pieter Erasmus Jansz. of over 2,600 morgen. In 1835 about one-third
was transferred to Pieter Lodwyk du Toit, again in 1841 to Charl du
Toit jr., and in 1851 to Charl Petrus Johannes du Toit.

The remaining two-thirds were transerred on the same day in 1835 to
Charl du Toit sr. and in 1849 to Nicolaas Johannes Janse van Rensburg
and Jacobus Lodewyk Erasmus jointly. Erasmus promptly transferred
his shared to Charl du Toit and the latter with equal celerity to N.J.J.
van Rensburg who so became owner of the whole two-thirds.

(quoted from: The Old Houses of the Cape,
by H.Fransen and Dr. Mary Cook, 1965

This farm, Leeuwenkuil, according to Andre van Rensburg (web site),
had been the family farm for some time before this having been men-
tioned in the will of Willem van Rensburg (born 2 July 1741) and I think
the transfers above must have been part of the distribution of the
estate after the death of Willemina Burger, the wife of Rasmus Pieter

married 4 January 1835 at Tulbagh 7

Notes: no baptism found either in Swartland or in Tulbagh registers.
Andre van Rensburg has him baptized 6 July 1837 but Maureen
de Villiers has been unable to find any baptism in the films of
the registers kept at GISA.

He is, however, listed on the death notice of Hester Cecilia
du Toit, his mother, and noted as being married (1876).

born 25 January 1840 9
baptized 15 March 1840, Tulbagh 10

Notes: this child was not mentioned in the Death Notice of his mother, and he
presumably died before 1853 when his brother, another Johannes Petrus,
was born.

Anna Margaretha Geertruida Janse van Rensburg born 1842
born 1 April 1842 11

signed by Johannes on 9.7.1877 which lists the children, Anna is listed
as Anna H.( not Anna N. or U. as on the death notice of her mother).
