About Hendrik Sneewind, SV/PROG

Heindrich (Hendrik) Schneeuwind (Sneewind), gebore ongeveer 1653, was afkomstig van Baal naby Erkelenz in die graafskap van Meurs(Mörs) in Duitsland. Die monsterrolle van 16785 gee Henrik Sneewind aan as ʼn Duitse vryburger wat dus daarop dui dat hy reeds voor 1678 in die Kaap aangekom het. Hendrik trou op 20 Oktober 1679 met Catharijn (Catharina) Steens van Wesel in Duitsland, die dogter van Jan Steens6. Meer lig word gewerp op Hendrik Sneewind se lewe aan Kaap uit opgaafrolle van bates, testamente en inventarisse van die weeskamer. Volgens die opgaafrol van 1692 het Hendrik druiwe- graan- en veeboerdery op grootskaal bedryf en het 1000 skape, 100 beeste en 10 000 wingerdstokke 7 besit.
