|Names in the record, in publications, etc.||24 September 1730, the name of Johannis was written in the record as Johannis van de Caep.5|
|Monsterrollen and Opgaafrollen (Muster and tax rolls)||1731 Jonker van Macassar and Rosetta van Java were enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in the, along with two sons, presumably Johannis van de Caep and Adriaan van der Caep. Recorded with them were two male slaves, who would have been one of the following individuals Alexander van Couchin, Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis. All of these individuals appear variously in the record connected to one or both of the principles. Significantly, Willem Duijsert, recorded as Willem Duytsers is living with the family. Is he perhaps their servant kindly taken in and allowed to run his 150 sheep on the family's lands due to a longstanding friendship? Duijsert and Jonker van Macassar, who on that occasion was recorded as Sriyay Moeda, were among those whom, in 1706, signed in support of Willem Adriaan van der Stel.6|
