BirthOrigin*Joost was probably from Domburg and was perhaps born there circa 1630. I have assumed this to be Domburgh and not Douburgh.1 
Death*He died in 1659, he was recorded among the Deceased Freemen in 1659. He had been employed by the Zeeland Chamber.2
(Passenger) ShipVoyage On 25 January 1658 the Prins Willem departed Wielingen enroute to de Caep de Goede Hoop where they docked on 17 June 1658. Among those on board were Hester Weijers, Jan Jansz: de Beer, Anthony Terrouw and Joost Pietersz: Moen.3,4,5 
Vrijbriewen and Burgher StatusOn 26 June 1658, Joost Pietersz: Moen was granted a vrijbrief or letter of freedom which released him from his contractual obligations to the VOC and accorded him the status of vrijburgher or free burgher. He was recorded as a carpenter on the Prins Willem.6
