About Johan Fredrik Wildhagen, SV/PROG

South African Genealogies

- Volume 16, page 131 has -

Johann Friedrich Weldhagen Born c. 1760, arrived before 1794 from Hannover, Germany, 1820 owner of a shop in Langestraat, Cape Town. Died dist. Cape Town 14.10.1828 (68.-); Married NGK Cape Town 24.8.1817 Helena Johanna Vioroni daughter of Giuseppe (Joseph) Anthonio Vioroni and Magdalena van Ellewee.


Johan Frederik Welthagen is shown in the GISA records as Johann Frederich Welthagen (the German spelling), the Stamvader of the Welthagens in South Africa and that he was born about 1760 in Hannover, Germany. I have also seen reference to his birthplace being Hannoversch Münden (further south than Hannover). As it is not certain how literate the people where in those days, or whether they only verbally gave their details to the authorities when arriving in South Africa, there may have been some incorrect spelling of the name Welthagen, as Wildhagen. There are a number of Wildhagens living in Germany, but so far I have not located any living Welthagens. There is however reference to a Philipp Jakob Welthagen born in 1720 in Dienethal, Germany who moved to and died in what is now Romania. He only had a daughter so his family name did not carry on. There are no passenger lists showing any Welthagens arriving in the South Africa between 1760 and 1860. There is however, a record in the VOC (Dutch East India Co.) archives of a Johan Fredrik Wildhagen (born in Twiste, Germany) who arrived on a VOC ship in 1793. Again, maybe Dutch spelling of a German name. http://vocopvarenden.nationaalarchief.nl/detail.aspx?ID=1422098. In due course I will visit these places and check in the local church records if they had recorded any Welthagens.

Johann Frederich married Helena Johanna Vioroni (also shown as Virioni, Viorini) in the NG Kerk, Cape Town on 24.07.1817. A reference in My Heritage states that this could have been a second marriage and that his first (unnamed) wife died. You show Helena Vioroni and Johann Frederich as having had 8 children. The first 4, of Johannes Chtristiaan Frederik (Christiaan Fredrik), b1; Frederika Maria Johanna, b2; Jan Adriaan Frederik, b3; Helena Johanna Rosina, b4 must have been children of his first wife, as they were born before 1817.

The eldest son, Johannes Christiaan Fredrik, b1 (above) married Aletta Francina (Elisabeth) STOOP in Graaff-Reinet on 4.7.1831 and they had 10 children. In the profile for Johannes Christiaan Fredrik Welthagen in GENI, you list 4 children: Maria Magdalena Caterina Johanna Welthagen, b1c1; Johannes Christiaan Burgert Welthagen, b1c2; Leendert Gerhardus Hendrikus Welthagen, b1c3 and Fredrik Albertus Welthagen, b1c4. According to GISA the ancestor in my wife’s family line Hendrik Josephus Welthagen was the 9th child (would therefore be b1c9). Maybe not all the children survived, but do you have any records of b1c5 to b1c8 and b1c10?

Laurence Browning, Leichlingen, Germany

RESPONSE The DN of Helena Johanna Rosina Virouni names the following as "children of the deceased" - Fredrica (Major); Jan; Leentje; William; Frans; Godlieb and Annie (Minors). This, together with baptisms so far located confirm that all but Johannes Christiaan Frederik Welthagen, b1 were of the 2nd relationship, although the marriage did not take place until 1817; Helena Johanna is named "van de Kaap" in some of the baptisms so far located.

See Welthagen, Wildhagen - South Africa which has been set up to fine tune this tree.
