BirthOrigin*Pieter was from and was perhaps born there circa 1700. The date is estimated based on the average age of men in the period who signed up with the VOC, and because his first appearance at the Cape is a contract in 1722 when he was an adelborst - which is the entry-level military rank for those seeking to become officers.1 
Marriage*He married Anna Katryn Conterman, daughter of Hans Jacob Conterman and Anna Catharina Cleef, on 17 April 1735 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town).1
Contract* On 29 December 1722 Claas Jansz van Rensburg concluded a contract with Pieter Paulusz: Tamé in which the latter was paid 14 guilders, Indian valuation, as well as food, drink and housing to serve as a school teacher. The contract was extended in 1723 and 1729. My thanks to Christo van Rensburg for sharing this document.2
