About Dorothea Oelofse, b3

Dorothea Oelfse

There is an unsolved query around the existence of b2 Fure ≈ 19, 10, 1692 but Delia Robertson claims that this baptism is that of the daughter B3 (SAG v7 p41) Dorothea who married Cornelia Campher.

concerning Various early Cape individuals, written by Mansell Upham, January - February 2011 (Personal Library, unknown repository reference) "1692 Den 19 8bris aen Stellenbosch een kint gedoopt waer van de vader is Andrijs Oelofse, de moeder Sara Leenderts, tot getuijg[e] stont Roelof Pasman, ende Fijtie Schalk, is genaemt Teure [My thanks to Mansell Upham for clearing up this transcription and also for pointing out that Teure is possibly a corruption of Thyre - or more conventionally Thyra - that in Danish/Norwegian 'y' is the same as 'u' in Afrikaans -i.e. Thyre pronounced Tuur or Teur - and that although the etymologies may conflict, there is a case to be made for the interchangeability of Dorothea and Thyra in terms of pagan Norsk names surviving in post-Christian Scandinavia.]."

In the baptism entry the child is not identified as a daughter - merely a child.

Note from Richard Ball - I have had a look at our copy of the original (handwriting is awful at this period) - the ure is pretty clear - letter before that seems most likely to be an e (though l is a possibility) and the initial letter seems to me very similar to the F starting Fijtie in the same entry - so my guess would be Feure but Mansell Upham's Teure is also a possibility.

b2 Dorothea Oelofse There is a strong case for the baptism of Fleure/Teure on 19th Jan 1692 being that of Dorothea

The baptism entry of her child Roeloff reflects her name being “Teùre” - http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/e1502.htm

"Roeloff, d'Vader Cornelis Camfer, d'Moeder Teùre [Dorothea] Oelofse, getn' Hans Conterman en Marta Beijers, 2e Jùly 1724"

In the light of this it would seem that there is no conclusive evidence that Feure/Teure and Dorothea are the same child; Feure/Teure is included in the GENi tree as b2 and Dorothea remains b3. This can be changed should further evidence come to light.
