|BirthOrigin*||Johannes was from Bommel and was perhaps born there circa 1670. The date is estimated.1|
|Marriage*||He married Lucretia Pietersz:, daughter of Pieter Janz van Nimmegen and Cornelia Theunisz, between 5 February 1699 and September 1699 Mauritius. I have assumed this to be the daughter of Pieter Janz van Nimmegen. Corrections welcome.2,3,1|

Richards & Sons, Government Printers, 1896), p.197: We have referred the freeman Jan Harmense and Lucretia Pieters to you, they wish to leave, but with a free passage. We likewise refused perrmissiom to said Lucretia to marry a Company's servant here, as we are short of men. With this she is much dissatisfied, and no doubt will complain that a great injustice has been done to her. We, however, care very little about such complaints, and only mention them for your information.
p.212: We are sorry that you were dissatisfied with our refusal to permit Lucretia Pietersz: to marry a Company’s servant. We have no apartments in the Lodge, & if she had married, she would have been obliged to live with her husband in the barracks among the men, & being a woman of bad and infamous character, much evil would have resulted. The man, however, having served his time, the marriage has been contracted, & both now leave with other freemen for the Cape.. Hereinafter cited as Precis of the archives of the Cape of Good Hope.

Richards & Sons, Government Printers, 1896), 18 June 1699. p.121 [to Mauritius]: That the Commander has refused to allow the marriage between the widow Lawrensz and a Company's servant, because there are too few Company's servants there for the work, is a most insufficient reason, and contrary to all divine and human law regarding marriage. Should they still feel iuclined, they are to be allowed to marry according to the Church rite and usage. The freeman Jan Harmausz Wattering may come to the Cape, and also Lucretia, if still a widow. On their arrival we will consider the expenses of their passage.. Hereinafter cited as Precis of the archives of the Cape of Good Hope.
