(Official2) SlaveAbscond On 11 January 1694 Emanuel de Fonseca, a slave belonging to the recently deceased William Deeron, stole f 600 worth of his of his late owner's possessions included a small amount of cash, a diamond ring, gold and amber. Will Gutter skipper of the Josias and friend of Deeron, granted power-of-attorney to Guillaume Heems to apprehend the runaway, and hold him in custody until Gutter returned to the Cape. Fonseca took refuge with Jacob Hendrixe van Hagen a free mesties, planning to escape on the Christianus Quintus, but 16 days later the two fell out over the stolen items which had been buried on Hayes' property. Fonseca was apprehended by Heems and was tried, found guilty and sentenced to flogging and 10 years detention.12 
Names in the record, in publications, etc.Between 28 August 1690 and 3 October 1700, the name of Guillaume was written in the record as Guilliam Heems.13,14
Vrijbriewen and Burgher StatusGuillaume Heems became a burgher in 1678, 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 de Caep de Goede Hoop.1

Will Deeron would have come back to the Cape for a fourth time, but died between Madagascar and the Cape. This time he was sailing on the vessel Josias. In a document drawn up on the 11th of January 1694 it is stated that Emanuel de Fonseca, a slave belonging to the late Will Deeron, had fled from the Josias, having stolen several of his late master's possessions: a small amount of ready cash, a diamond ring, as well as gold and amber. Will Gutter, a friend of WilIiam Deeron, gave Burgher Councillor Guilliam Heems power of attorney to hold Emanuel in custody if he were caught, and hand him back when Gutter returned to the Cape. Whether Heems actually had the opportunity to return Emanuel to his master is not known. According to an entry in the Journal of the 12th of March 1694, Emanuel found shelter with Jacob Hayes, who is described as a Free Mesties, a person whose father was white and whose mother was a slave. After about sixteen days the two began to quarrel about the stolen goods which had been buried in the house and garden of Jacob Hayes. The thief had intended to escape on the Danish vessel Christianus Quintus but was caught when Guilliam Heems found out where he was hiding. A court case followed and Hayes was flogged and sentenced to ten years of detention.
