Johannes Jansz van Ceijlon was married to a different Rosetta van Bengale, not related or connected to the Jonker family. This Rosetta van Bengale’s 16/10/1769 will (ref MOOC8/13.23), shows she was married to Jan Jansz van Ceijlon and they had 4 surviving children [grandchildren?.. Sharon]: Johanna (Anna?) Rebecca, Appolinia, Johannes Adriaan en Maria Juliana. Prior to his marriage to this Rosetta van Bengale, he was the widower of Rosaleijn van Bengale. He too was not married to a Rosetta van Ceijlon.

Roselyn Van Bengalen word as 'n bejaarde lyfgeine van Johannes van Ceylon gedoop op 20 Jan 1737.


1750 There are 3 Rosetta van Bengale wills: CJ 2611:38 1750; wife of Johannes Jansz; MOOC 7/1/11:4 1750; wife of Johannes Jansz; MOOC 7/1/19:14 1750; It will be interesting to check exactly what each said and try and understand why so many had to be drawn up.

There is also a 1764 combined will of Johannes Jansz and Rosetta van Bengale - will be good if someone has access to this to transcribe the detail: MOOC 7/1/19:15 1764.


It looks as if Jan (Johannes) Jansz van Ceijlon died shortly before his wife Rosetta van Bengale: Leibbrandt Precis Requesten vol 2 F-O: Jansz (Johannes) ; of Ceylon ; deceased. Orphan Masters as Executors of his Estate, and that of his wife (deceased) Rosetta of Bengal submit that the latter, in her Will, desired the manumission of her slave, Augusto of Ceylon. They offer as sureties, the burghers Jan Mostert of Wieringen and Daniel Winst. (Extract from Will annexed. (No. 68 ; date, 1 2th December, 1769, p612)

According to her liquidation & distribution a/c MOOC 13/1/7:4 1769-1770 and 16/10/1769 will (ref MOOC8/13.23), she was the widow of Jan Jansz van Ceijlon and 4 children are mentioned: Johanna (Anna?) Rebecca, Appolinia, Johannes Adriaan en Maria Juliana.

It seems as if Appolonia was a voorkind of this Rosetta van Bengale - owned by Arnoldus Koevoet (baptised 13/7/1732 as child of Rosa van Bengale): Gedoop 13 Julie 1732 Gedoop; Gedoop 13 Jul 1732: Appolania een slawekind van Arnoldus Koevoet, die moeder is Rosa van Bengalen, de getuie is Arnoldus Koevoet. (Geen Vader word genoem, Rosa was 'n slaaf vir Arnoldus Koevoet.)

Jan (Johannes) v Ceylon actually bought the slave girl Appolonia vd Caap from her owner Arnoldus Koevoet 3 1/2 years later on 4 Jan 1736 (slave transactions): Jan v Ceylon koop slavin Apolonia vd Caap by Arnoldus Koevot op 4 Jan 1736.Reference no.: MOOC10/4.143.
