If anyone has some spare time we would appreciate some info on Steven Jansz Botma (1618 - 1700) and his wife. He was one of the first colonists to arrive from the Netherlands (born appr. 1618 in Wageningen, Nederland). His wife from Ij, Gelderland, Nederland arrived in the Cape in 1664 accompanied by her step son Jan and her child Cornelius.

Thank you Bea.  That would be much appreciated if you could find something.  There are conflicting dates about Steven's birt and his children from his first wife, who is unknown.  According to some records, he arrived here in 1657, and other records quote, shortly after Jan van Riebeeck.

Next time I visit The Netherlands, we must have ourselves a borreltje.
Anyone having a clue where "Ij" in Gelderland was? I only know one IJ and it s not in Gelderland.

So far no luck in Gelderland or Friesland at Steven Botma or as he is named Steven Jansz....... Jan Botma :/

Nor for Hendrika Hendriks in Gelderland. Oldest record on that name is after 1700......... I am sorry.

Uit het testament van Steven Jansz (Botma) en Hendrika Hendriks aan de
Caab de Goede Hoop, 1689: "zal hebben uijt te keeren en te erlangen zo
haast doenelijk aan haar Comparante voordochter Maria Willemsz van
Zeeste woonachtig tot Zeist gelijke somme van honderd Caabse guldens"
Een verder onderzoek bracht aan het licht dat Hendrika Hendricks de
weduwe was van Willem Otto van Zeist en Maria hun dochter.

Frederik Botha.. Family?  Voor 1652 Die betekenis van BOTH(A). Die naam Both is afgelei van die Friesiese naam "Botho" (of Bote) wat leier of bevelgewer beteken. Die "a" wat volg beteken ook seun van. Die volle van beteken dan ook dat Botha die seun is van Both, die leier of bevelgewer.  Wangenheim is een gemeente in de Duitse deelstaat Thüringen, en maakt deel uit van de Landkreis Gotha. Wangenheim telt 674 inwoners[2].

 

Gotha and Botha? Wangenheim en Wageningen?
