 Founding Venters In South Africa

 Meet Hendrik, the Venter progenitor in South Africa, here...

 We are in the process of compiling the Venter Chronology since 1679 to about 1800. The list only contains information where we have a copy of the actual record, and with reference and source. For example: The inventories and vendurollen or auction lists are stored in the Cape Archives. The Archives of the Master of the Supreme Court (Cape of Good Hope) is housed in the Cape Archives Repository, Roeland Street, Cape Town. It includes:
