About Gerrit Jansz

Marriage to Aaltje Alberts - NGK Cape Town Anno 1673 Den 29 Octob' Gerrit Jansz j.m. van Weyninghen en Aaltjen Aalbertsz van Purmerent wed' van Lambert Lambertsz - NGK G1 1/1, Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Kerken Boek (Mar) 1665-1695.

Other information obtained from here:

Includes information on mentions on baptism records of others' children, various slaves he bought and sold, and a note that on "4 April 1689, the name of Gerrit was written in the record as Gerrit van Weinegom".

The place of origin is a bit of a mystery, as there doesn't seem to be a place of that name. However, there are some references on the internet to other Janszes who were connected to Wieringen, and there is another place called Wageningen, so perhaps "Weyninghen" was a mis-transcription of one of these.

Merged with a duplicate profile which had first name as "Gerrit Jansz 'de Boer' " and surname as "van Wijnegom"
