Notes for Pieter Christiaan de Jager:

Pieter Christiaan de Jager married Hermina Carelse on the 19th February 1696. He was about 17 years her senior. Hermina is recorded under a number of different names (Hermina, Ermina, Willemina, Tremena). Spelling of names is also not consistent and surnames changed at times to indicate the individual’s birth place or sometimes the father’s surname. Hermina is also called Willemina van Mauritius indicating her place of birth. Hermina was the daughter of Iba van Timor, and I suspect, an unknown VOC employee in Mauritius with the surname ‘Carelse’, hence her taking on the name ‘Hermina Carelse’. Her mother, Iba was the daughter in a Timorese family that was exiled from Timor and sent to Mauritius from Jakarta in 1676. Family consisted of Amsubu [also known as Amsoeboe], his wife Inabe, and their two daughters Iba and Baauw. Hermina was born in 1677 in Mauritius to daughter Iba and later baptised in the Cape of Good Hope on the 8th February 1693. The family was accused of inciting a mutiny and sent from Mauritius to the Cape, South Africa in 1679. Iba was to become the stamoeder (progenitor) of the De Jagers and sister Baauw the stamoeder of the van Wyk line. (Robertson) The story of the Timorese family is found in the book ”Pai Timor” by Mansell Upham.
