Surnames A to C

CRAUSE Johann Jacob

Johann Jacob CRAUSE/KRAUSE of Diefenbach, Germany arrived 1733 on the Castricum as a soldier in service of the VOC. He became a citizen (burger) in 1735. He married 27 May 1736 Elisabeth GROENENBERG, daughter of Gysbert van Groenenberg en Juliana van de Kaap. In 1747 Johann Jacob CRAUSE, his wife and four children went back to Europe. This means that this line of CRAUSE in South Africa flows only from Hermanus Lucas CRAUSE. Hermanus Lucas CRAUSE, born 7 Dec 1738, was in service of the VOC as a sailor, but aquired his citizenship at the Cape in 1758.
