Vrijbriewen and Burgher StatusJohannis Vosloo became a burgher circa 1752, in Dutch vryburgher or vrijburgher, initially a status in which a soldier or other employee of the VOC was released from their contractual obligations to the VOC and permitted to farm, become a tradesman, or work for others. Subsequently some individuals, including the Huguenot refugees, were brought to the Cape specifically to farm and were burghers from the time of their arrival Swellendam, de Caep de Goede Hoop.2
