Hendrik Cornelis van Niekerk
« on: Monday 01 February 16 13:35 GMT (UK) »
Need help finding baptism and death records for Hendrik Cornelis van Niekerk b. abt 1850 Tygerberg or Durbanville Cape Town. Not sure if these are his parents names - Jacob van Reenen van Niekerk b. 1818 and Jeanne Francoise Duminy b. 1825.

Need his wife's baptism and death records as well. They were married 27 Jan 1876 Cape Town (I have their married record)

She was Johanna Sophia Wilhelmina Neethling b 21 Sep 1854  Her parents were - Christiaan Wilhelm Frederik Neethling 1813- 1877 and Hester Magdalena Elizabeth Rossouw 1819 - 1884 married 19 Nov 1836 Cape Town.

Have looked at Geni, family search and the online archive index but only found their married record and baptism records for three of there children. Hendrik and Johanna supposedly had 13 children this was according to their daughter my Ouma who told me years ago.

Thanks Karen.

Maybe this document will give you the names of the children.  You will have to order it directly from the archives.

Yes, thanks Nookie I saw that. Will ask Henry at the Cape Archives if he will send it to me.

do you happen to have any of their death dates, there are a lot of death notices on naairs and it will help to narrow it down

Ok because if you had the estate file no then I can perhaps get the death notice or a will and they will list wife, parents and children.......................

Just an update - I have found civil death notices for Hendrik and his wife, there does not seam to be estate files for them. Secondly the Hendrik born 1850 was the incorrect husband to Johanna Wilhlemina Sophia Neethling. The correct Hendrik was born in 1849 a cousin to the one born in 1850.   I have their parents now and all 16 of their children.

Thanks for trying to help.

I am looking for any records on  Hendrik Cornelis van Reenen van Niekerk and  Anna Jacoba Brodrick. I have their children's names. Was his dad maybe Jacob van Reenen van Niekerk married to Jeanne Francois Duminy in 1849 ?
