Heyneke Family
Posted by Bart Heyneke on 2004/11/19

My name is Bart Heyneke and I am researching my South Arican roots. Any information/advise re Heyneke family will be greatly appreciated. My great great grand father Johann Adreas Heyneke (Heynike) arrived in Cape of Good Hope in 1750 from Dessau, Brandenberg, Germany. I have started on my immediate family and worked back to my grand father Bartholomeus Roelof Jacobus Heyneke born on 10/09/1895 at Potchefstroom he was married to Maria Louisa Steenkamp from Barkley West. His father was Casper Cornelius Heyneke. My father was also called Casper Cornelius Heyneke he was born on the 17 July 1921 at Pretoria. I am trying to link up between 1750 to 1895. Thanks Bart
