Shared note: Willem did not follow his other brothers who settled in the district of Swellendam but instead went in the direction of his sisters who got married to farmers in the Cold Bokkeveld, (Elsie married 1731 to P van der Merwe, and Cecilia married 1732 to Izaak van der Merwe). Thus Willem established the Cold Bokkeveld branch of van Rensburg's. Willem must have moved back to live in the Cold Bokkeveld, it came under the Drakenstein area, before 1736 since he is mentioned in census roll(5) 1736 under Drakenstein. His possessions include one firearm and a dagger. In 1738 he became a member of the Drakenstein church, the records reveal(2k) (6).
