About Anthonie Visser, b8

b8 Antonie VISSER * 20 Apr 1692 ~ 24 Mar 1696 X 28 Aug 1720, Anna Maria BRONS ~ 26 Apr 1702, d/v Jan Albert BRONS en Maria COOPMANS Anna was die wed. van Jan van der WESTHUIZEN, + C1718, wat die plaas Diemersdal aan sy weduwee nagelaat het.

Antonie kry opdrag vanaf die Kasteel in Kaapstad om 'n tydelike tente-hospitaal op te rig vir die siek matrose wat per boot die "Pallas" by Simonsbaai op 2 Aug 1737 arriveer met 37 mans dood aan skeurbuik en 75 siek. Slegs 17 van die matrose was nog gesond. Op 27 Mei 1753 ontvang hy as erkenning landbougrond en bou Admiralty House, wat nog vandag bestaan en as historiese monument besigtig kan word in Simonstad. Antonie VISSER word beskou as die vader van Simonstad. (See on Internet: Admiralty House Simon's Town)

(Ref Familia CD p 29 & 30: Farm: Diemersdal.)

Van der Westhuizen died, leaving the farm to his widow. Two years later she married Anthoni VISSER, who according to Historical Simon's Town, was the first European to settle permanently in that area, and who played an important part in its early development. Considering his activities in the Southern Peninsula and in Table Valley, it is very unlikely that he lived on his farm, Diemersdal, but he definitely controlled it from afar. On 2 Oct 1732 he was granted an erfpacht of 32 morgan 413 sq rds. "by syn plaats Diemersdal, thus confirming him as owner of that property through his marriage with Anna Maria BRONS. This is the only evidence that has come to light on his ownership.

Antoni and Anna Maria produced one child, Elizabeth Theresia ~ 26 10 1717 Cape Town, and she became the sole heir of her parents by a will executed in 1742. It seems likely that this will was made owing to the increasing age or ill health of Antoni and that he had died by 1745. This seems likely as although his wife, Anna Maria, was a witness to the baptisms of two of Elizabeth's children, born in 1745 and 1747 respectively. His name appears in neither case. We assume that both he and Anna Maria were dead by 1750, according to a transfer deed of that year. On 16 Feb 1744 Elizabeth married "Luitenant ter See, Christian Everhard Philip von Jungheim" of the warship, Die Hersteller. Christiaan Eberhart von Jungheim se van word verkort na EBERHARD, later EUVRARD. Elizabeth xx 8 Nov 1750 met Abraham Thomas IMMENS Elizabeth + 1755. (Ref CD Familia p. 30).
