Does anyone have anything on the TRUTER family in the Cape?
The sort of guff I have been able to find is shown below, but they bloke I
am helping out here is a descendent of the Barrow family, and is probably
more interested in the earlier origens of the TRUTER family.

Johannes Andreas Truter ended up being a Chief Justice of the Cape in 1812,
earning the title "Sir John Truter". His daughter, Anna Maria, married John
Barrow in the Cape in abt 1898, and a daughter was born to them there,
before they left for England in abt 1803.

Barrow became second Secretary to the Admiralty in 1804, and held the post
for forty years. In 1835 a baronetcy was conferred on him. Amongst other
works he published Travels in China, Travels into the Interior of South
Africa, and lives of Lord Macartney, Lord Anson, and Lord Howe. He was
Founder of the Royal Geographical Society, and the greatest promoter of
Arctic exloration. (Taken from "Lady Anne Barnard at the Cape of Good Hope"
by Dorothea Fairbridge 1924.)

Would appreciate any help possible
