Willemijntjie ADRIAANSE (Ook bekend as Willemijntjie Ariens de Wit), sy was een van agt weesmeisies van Rotterdam wat op 4 Augustus op die Berg China met die Franse vlugtelinge in die Kaap aangekom het.

The South African variegate porphyria PPOX R59W could be traced back to Gerrit Jansz van Deventer, born in Veldkamp in the Netherlands, and to his wife Ariaentje Jacobs, who was born in Rotterdam . Her father died when she was 5 months and her mother, when she was eight. Admitted to the orphanage 'Gereformeerd Burgersweeshuis' in Rotterdam, in 1687, the director minister Sewentien decided to send eight of his female orphans (including Ariaentje and her half-sister Willemijntje) to the Cape to become wives of the Dutch settlers. She married Gerrit Jansz van Deventer, and he and his wife had eight children, of whom four had porphyria. The link with this founder family was identified first by Geoffrey Dean, a British physician who settled in South Africa in 1947.69 He could determine whether Ariaentje or her husband, Gerrit Jansz, carried the mutation. Based on the fact that Hendrik, the son of the half-sister, Willemijntje, also had porphyria the mutation, the carrier was assumed to be Ariaentje.
