Searching for George or Jurgen Visser early 19th century in South Africa

My grandfather, Gideon Gabriel Visser was born in 1875, possibly in the Cape Province. I want to know who his parents were.

Hello Duvina,

This is not exactly answering your question, but I have picked up a Gideon Gabriel Visser around circa 1900 in Aliwal North, Cape of Good Hope, South Africa on the South African, Methodist Parish Registers 1822-1996 and although these enteries may be too recent in time they may be of interest to you. 

Louisa Johanna Visser baptism 19 June 1902, female 

Adolph Gustav Visser baptism 28 Aug 1906, male

Douglas Gabrial Visser baptism 18 March 1918

They were the children of Gideon Gabriel Visser b.7 Nov 1875 d.17 June 1962 and Constance Visser (nee von Broembsen) b.1880 d.1960. Her parents are listed as Gustav Adolph von Broembsen 1843-1885 and Louisa Johanna Catharina von Broembsen (born Kriel) 1847-?

His father is listed as PN Visser in one record on family search and on Geni a family search reveals the following;

Hi Amanda

Thanks for your input. I have discovered that the father of Gideon Gabriel (my grand father) was Georg Frederick Visser, born 1831. Anna Maria Rossouw was the wife of Georg Frederick.


Good day Duvina


I am the first grand child of Douglas Gabriel bidder my Mom is Annelize Lotz . I have recently started to look up my heritage history and your research has been very helpful if u have any more information on when and who came to South Africa and from where that would be great.
Hi Cheri

Glad to have a fellow searcher. Douglas was my Dad's brother, and I knew him and Mara well when I was a child. The problem seems to be finding the parents of Gideon Gabriel. They could be Georg Frederik Visser and Anna Maria Roussouw (Visser), but I can't find any indication that these 2 were married and had children. She is buried in Wellington. He???
