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".
According to Die Myburghs van Suid-Afrika, a record in the Deeds Office dated 11 October 1672 (Akeskantoor - T131) shows that Gerrit Janz “d’Boer” van Wynegom lived on the property next to Lammert Lammertz (Lammert Lammertsz, SV/PROG). He had bought the property together with the Swede Olof Bergh (Olof Martini Bergh, SV/PROG), when both unmarried.
Wynegom turns out to be a town in Belgium near Antwerp, called Wijnegem. (
NOTE: Merged with a duplicate profile which had first name as "Gerrit Jansz 'de Boer' " and surname as "van Wijnegom".
