Johann Georg LINGENFELDER, born 1748, came from Nurnberg, Germany. He arrived in South Africa prior to 1768 when he is recorded as being employed as a cooper, from 1777 he was a master cooper. On 21 June 1778 he married Petronella Johanna HARTOG (bapt. 3 March 1754), she was the daughter of Philip Hartog and Maria Le Roux. Her slave roots go back to her paternal grandmother Petronella Philips (married to Paulus Hartog), who was the daughter of the manumitted slaves Philip van Bouton and Susanna van Boegies. Johann Georg died on the 1 January 1803, while Petronella Johanna lived a further 24 years and died on the 26 Feb 1827, aged about 74 years. Of their 12 children, five were baptised in the Lutheran church. This was at a time when the Lutheran church first gained colonial approval to establish itself at the Cape. In 1774 a "warehouse" was erected by Martin Melck with the future intention of turning it into a Lutheran church. The first Lutheran minister, Andreas Kolver arrived at the Cape in 1780 and on the 10 December of that same year the "warehouse" was formally consecrated. The first of the 5 Lingenfelder children to be baptised in the newly established church was Philippus, who"s baptism is recorded on the 10 Feb 1782.
