About Anna Bergh (de Koning)

In 1655 koop Jan van Riebeeck die slavin Angela van Bengale(n) by Pieter Kemp. Toe Van Riebeeck se kleindogter, Johanna Maria, die Kaap in 1710 besoek, skryf sy in ’n brief van “Ansiela”, die vrou wat haar vader en sy broers en susters (d.w.s. die Van Riebeeck-kinders) opgepas het. Sy skryf verder dat Ansiela later met ’n Hollander getroud is en dat haar dogter die vrou van kaptein “B.” was. Dit is inderdaad so dat “Maai” Ansiela, ná haar vrystelling met Arnoldus Basson getroud is en die stammoeder van die Basson-familie in Suid-Afrika geword het. (Maai is blykbaar afgelei uit moei ‘tante’ [1e keer gedokumenteer 1201-1250] wat eintlik die vleinaam is vir moeder. WNT).

Terwyl Angela nog ’n slavin was, is haar dogter, Anna de Koning, uit ’n buite-egtelike verhouding met ’n Europeër gebore. Anna was nie net mooi van aansien met fynbesnede gelaatstrekke nie, maar was ook geletterd en het met ’n vaste hand dokumente onderteken. Sy was met kaptein Oloff Bergh getroud en het op haar beurt die stammoeder van die Bergh-familie in Suid-Afrika geword.

In 1655 Jan van Riebeeck bought the slave Angela of Bengal . When Van Riebeeck 's granddaughter, Johanna Maria , visited Cape Town in 1710 , she wrote in a letter of " Ansela " , the woman who lost her father and his brothers and sisters ( ie the Van Riebeeck children ) herding . She writes that Ansela later married a Dutchman and that her daughter married Captain " B " . It is true that " Beautiful " Ansela , after gaining her freedom married Arnoldus Basson and became the ancestress of the Basson family in South Africa .

While Angela was still a slave, her daughter , Anna de Koning ,was born from an extramarital relationship with a European . Anna was not only pretty with finely chiselled features, but also literate and with a steady hand signed documents . She married Captain Olof Bergh and she became the ancestress of the Berg family in South Africa.
