Adrianùs van Wyk M, #6123, b. before 25 December 1701 Father* Arie van Wijk1 b. b 18 Jan 1668, d. bt Apr 1713 - 2 Dec 1713 Mother* Cornelia Helm1 b. b 17 Sep 1673, d. c 1721 NGK Drakenstein Baptisms 1694-1732 NGK Drakenstein Baptisms 1694-1732 NGK Stellenbosch Baptisms 1688-1732 NGK Stellenbosch Baptisms 1688-1732 Birth* Adrianùs van Wyk was born before 25 December 1701.1 Baptism Adrianùs van Wyk was baptized on 25 December 1701 at Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Stellenbosch, de Caep de Goede Hoop. The baptism was witnessed by Geertruidt Helm.2,1 Marriage* He married Sara Fourie, daughter of Louis Fourie and Suzanne Cordier, circa 1722.3 Note* He may not be the individual married to Sara Fourie. Based on current available evidence researched by Richard Ball (, it is possible that this Adriaan died very young and that there was another Adria(a)n(us) born to Arij van Wijck and Cornelia Helms around 1705. In that event, Sara Fourie would have married the second born Adria(a)n(us), not this individual. This would not change the fact of the union between Sara and a son of Arij and Cornelia and that their children were descendants of this branch of the Van Wijck/Wyk family.4 Baptism He witnessed the baptism of Marcus Anthonius Fourie on 11 July 1728 at Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Drakenstein, de Caep de Goede Hoop.5 Baptism He and Marie Couteau witnessed the baptism of Johanna Marija van Hoeting on 15 May 1729 at Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Drakenstein, de Caep de Goede Hoop.6 Family Sara Fourie b. b 29 Nov 1705 Children

   [S331] Webpage Ball Family Records ( "on the page:
   “Notes: There is a contradiciton in the surviving documentary records. There is a baptism for Adrianus, son of Arij van Wijk and Cornelia Helmes in the Stellebosch baptismal register, dated 25 December 1701, and also a reference in the will that Cornelia Helmes drew up in 1720 with her last husband, which lists her children thus: Rolof, Aletta, Willem, Sara, Adriaan, Maria, Catarina and Hester VanWijk. This agrees with with the baptismal evidence.
   Unfortunately the only reference to him which gives his age is one in the will of his father and mother dated 1713, which reads thus: Roelof aged 18, Aletta 17, Willem 16, Sara 15, Maria 9, Adrianus 8, Catrina 3, and Hester 6 months, which conflicts with the two other references, one earlier and one later than this latter one. In this list of 1713, some of the childrens ages are spot on with their dates of baptism, but Sara and Adriaans would appear to be wrong. I have taken the baptism and the later reference as indicating that there was only one child Adriaan and that he was born c. 1701.
   Details of his family from the Deceased Estate Accounts of Willem van Wijk d'oude, 1771-72 and those of Sara Fourie also dated 1771-72.”."
