About Wentzel Christoffel Coetzer

Children as listed on ZIM DN 78/241

The parents of Wentzel have not been established conclusively. The following is from Martha Catharina Jacoba (Martie) Coetser Pozyn

Wentzel who went to Rhodesia was also not the son of David Cornelis COETZER * 14.7.1833 @ Cradock † 17.2.1878 (44) @ Elansdrift, Cradock x Maria Johanna BERNART (Bernard / Barnard)

Here is the Death Notice of their son Wentzel -


Presently, and temporarily, I have Wentzel married to Herculina as the grandson of

b1c10d7. Johan Harmse COETZER (Jan Harm Coetzer) ~ 10.11.1801

  • x (5.5.1822) Maria Elizabeth Anna MALAN * 9.2.1806 † c.1834 (28)
  • xx (11.2.1835) Maria Johanna BERNARD

Although I have not yet found evidence, I worked on the evidence I already have.

The name of the oldest son of Johan Harmse COETZER (Jan Harm Coetzer) and Maria Elizabeth Anna MALAN is Wentzel.

b1c10d7e1. Wentzel Christoffel COETZER * 16.7.1824 @ Cradock x APPARENTLY Johanna Petronella NN (or any of his daughter’s names).

I temporarily put Wentzel married to Herculina as above parent’s son, because their oldest son was also a Wentzel (named after his grandfather).

b1c10d7e1f1g1 Wentzel Christoffel COETZER * 1880 † 1895 (15) (Unfortunately I have lost his Death Notice !! I will send it as soon as I find it.

Another reason why I have Wentzel married to Herculina as b1c10d7e1f1: The other couple who went to Rhodesia was his cousin –

b1c10d7e7f1. Jan Harmse COETZER (John Harmse / Jan Harm) * June 1858 @ Cape Colony † 27.2.1932 (73) @ General Hospital, Salisbury, Rhodesia (Salisbury, Hatfield, Zimbabwe, Que Que) x (16.8.1882 @ Kroonstad) Herculina Johanna STEYN * 8.3.1863 @ Cradock † 13.9.1954 (91) @ Salisbury, Rhodesia. ('n Ander bron het Jan Harm se geboortedatum as 25.2.1856 @ Queenstown, Cape Colony.) Herculina Johanna was the daughter of Hendrik Balthazar Steyn and Anna Susanna van Heerden

To proof this, we have to find the Death Notice of Wentzel b1c10d7e1, which we will most probably find in Cradock Stormberg District’ archives.
