In the list of names at Amboina in 1846 I only find the name H. Haijer (twice though) (link). Not more than a suggestion of a first initial.
They're there from 1842 onwards, Before then only a C. Haijer (already there in 1838), presumably Cornelis Haijer who died on Amboina in 1842.
I gather from other discussions here that a very important resource is the book mentioned here on Ambon, based on baptism records at Ambon. Whether that is relevant to your query I would not know though. [I just noticed a gap 1841-1883].

Thank you Peter S for your reaction.
Is C.Haijer could be the father of W.G Haijer if you see it from the year of his death? Are there Haijer's family files that came from the Netherlands to Ambon in the 1700s or 1800s?
No, Cornelis Haijer died on 8.2.1842 and cannot have been the father but he may have been the grandfather.
The other births at Amboina with this surname are
Katharina Haijer b.6.5.1841
Hendrik Frederik Haijer b.1.8.1844 (probably died 20.12.1844)
Willem Laukens Haijer b.9.5.1845
Willem Gerrit Haijer b.2.2.1846 who married there in 1870
Diederik Haijer (child) died 17.6.1846
Have you found any further information on any of these besides Willem Gerrit? Edit: A relevant marriage is not found there, whereas the marriage records can be searched from 1834 onwards. So it appears to me the parents got there from elsewhere in about 1840. [Separate note - there are army records of 2 of the children of Willem Gerrit here (scroll down) just in case you did not have those.]
Given the birth in 1845 at Amboina of one Willem Laukens Haijer, possibly a brother of Willem Gerrit, and the birth in 1871 of a Loukens Hendrik Jacob Haijer, possibly a son of Willem Gerrit, I find suspicious the death on 20.7.1874 at Amboina of a Loukens Haijer, a military. Surely he must be related. But where is his army record? I have checked the Oost-Indisch boek online index and gone through the indexes of the suppletiefolio's. Can't find it. Where is it?
Wie weet te vinden de stamboekinschrijving van de militair Loukens Haijer die overleed op Amboina in 1874? Hij zal toch wel familie zijn, maar ik vind zijn stamboekinschrijving niet.

@Peter S thank you.
Is it possible for a name like Katharina Haijer and another is there a brother and sister from Willem? I did not find any other information from Willem. I see the name of his father Laukens is Willem Gerrit and Pieter is my great grandfather.

@Ben Wegman thank you.
Are there data from the Haijer family who worked in Ambon in the 1700s or early 1800s? Maybe the names are related to Willem, which I know Elizabeth Charlotta is the mother of my great grandfather.
The studbook that mentions M Haijer, registers civil servants. Unfortunately this studbook is not digitaly available, so no more details are available on line.
It can only be seen at the National Archive in the Hague or one can order scans. But making those scans wil carry some costs, and it is yet uncertain what information will be in it. (this is the link to the studbook that contains information about M. Haijer: link )
What you could do is to ask if somebody who lives in the Hague or is going to the National Archives shortly, wants to take a picture of the relevant pages of this stubook.
