Hello Caroline,

CDB> It indicates that he was employed by the Company at the end of
CDB> February 1692 in Amsterdam and arrived in the Cape during the
CDB> winter of 1692.

What is it that indicates the above?

CDB> It is also recorded that he descended from Vredenburg,although
CDB> there is no such name in Nederlands.It is postulated that
CDB> Vredenburg could have been a cluster of houses and monastery in
CDB> the previously known barony van Breda.

By whom and on what grounds?
