Biography

The Wolters family moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands in 1816 from London, England.
Eliza Married Marten Scheffer in Amsterdam on 30 August 1837. The record requests recognition of one child which would be Andries Godfried born 13 March 1837.
Eliza accompanied her three sons (the first Frederick-1842 must have died as his brother 1849 carries the same family name) to South Africa - My father records this as 1859.
Her Death Notice is clearly Transvaal, South Africa - indicating Utrecht in Natal, also signed by Christoper Louis, and as I know Andries Godfried was a Lawyer resident in Wakkerstroom, Transvaal this would explain why it is a Transvaal Probate. Riaan Serfontein-4 entered May 2017.
