Birth*Catharina Ustings was born circa 1641 in Lubeeck, Eastern Holstein, Germany.1,2
 
Marriage*She married PN NN circa 1660 Nothing is currently (2005) known about this first marriage - the relationship is widely is assumed because Tryn was described as a 21-year-old widow in the Resolutions of the Council of Policy at the time her marriage to Hans Rans was announced.

Margaret Cairns in "Tryn Ras", assumes that Trijn was already widowed when she embarked on her journey to the Cape in 1662. However, it seems just as likely that she was widowed enroute to the Cape - given the number of deaths due to scurvy which occured on the journey, and which continued to occur for some time afterwards.3,4,5 
Marriage*Catharina Ustings married Hans Ras on 3 September 1662 Cabo de Boa Esperança. Within hours of her marriage to Hans Ras, Trijn must have been wondering what she had let herself in for. On the wagon journey from Table Bay to Hans' farm on the Liesbeeck river at Rondebosch, the wagon drivers - Frans Gerrit of Uijthoorn and Thieleman Hendricksz, both drunk - tried to outrun each other with one wagon ultimately being forced off the track. In the ensuing argument about who was responsible Hendricksz', much to Ras' annoyance, resorted to foul language (scheltewoorden) and a fight broke out. Hendricksz stabbed Ras twice, breaking the blade of his knife in Ras' ribs in the second blow.6,4 
Marriage*Catharina Oestinghs married Francois Champelaer on 17 April 1672 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.7,4 
Marriage*She married Laurens Cornelisz on 29 October 1673 (Cape Town).8,9
 
Marriage*She married Matthys Michels on 25 January 1680 (Cape Town).10,4,11
 
Marriage BannMarriage banns for Catharina Ustings and Hans Ras were published on 19 August 1662 de Caep de Goede Hoop.12 
Death*She died before 18 August 1708 de Caep de Goede Hoop.13,4
 
Inventory*Catharina's estate was inventoried between 18 August 1708 and 19 September 1708 de Caep de Goede Hoop. The inventory named Matthys Michels, Nicolaas Ras, Maria Ras, Laurentia Cornelissen and Anna Elizabeth Michelsz as benefitting from the estate.14 
LiquidDist Between 20 September 1708 and 31 December 1715 a liquidation and distribution account was prepared in the estate of Catharina Ustings.15
Note*There is widespread acceptance in genealogical circles that Trijn Ras, in the words of Margaret Cairns, was a remarkable woman who became a legend in her own time. It seems that Cairns having reached this conclusion, it was subsequently adopted as fact.

Cairns bases her conclusion on Trijn's travel to the Cape as a widow and therefor a single woman, on her five marriages, on her relative longevity, and on an entry in the personal diary of the Netherlands Commissioner Hendrik Adriaan van Reede tot Drakestein, Heer van Mijdracht, during an official visit to the Cape in 1685.

As explained elsewhere, there is no known evidence that Trijn embarked on her journey to the Cape as a widow. It is equally possible that she and her first, currently unidentified husband, set out together and that he succumbed to scurvy or some other affliction, enroute.

As to her five marriages, it was what women of the period - especially in a new settlement such as the Cape - did when their their husbands died - in my own ancestry there are at least two other women who lived at the Cape in the same timeframe, who were married four times. Single women without the protection of an extended family, were looked down upon and faced a precarious existence. Rather, Trijn would have demonstrated remarkable character if she had chosen to remain single and raise her children single-handedly.

As to her longevity, well this was more likely to have been the result of genetic serendipity than character.

But it is the Van Reede diary entry, that more than anything else seems to have prompted Cairns' conclusion. She cites it in full in English in "Tryn Ras":

"Wednesday 30 May 1685. Today we again set out on our horses and arrived at a farm dwelling lying beneath the Steenberg. Here the lady of the house and her marriageable daughter presented us with her compliments some home grown produce consisting of very delicious firm cabbage, freshly baked bread and some radishes. Her name was Kryn Ras and she was then married to her fourth husband (actually her fifth - M.C.). The first had been killed by a lion, the second by the Hottentots and the third probably by an elephant for he had gone out to shoot hippo for his family and was never heard of again. Here she was with a house full of children and married to her foreman. Her nearest neighbour lived four hours away. Three times she had been comfortably off and well established and three times impoverished. Her farm consisted of 12 morgen of good grainland with sufficient stock for her needs. She was accustomed to ride astride, quite alone, to the Cape settlement and back in a remarkably short time and the manner of so doing would have terrified anyone who met her en route if they had not known who she was. Her daughter could easily have passed for an Egyptian fortune-teller and the rest of the family could have been wild Indians from Brazil."

It is possible that the tenor of this extract has been distorted in translation, but in this form it is more bemused than admiring. Van Reede's only unequivocal praise is for the produce he received from Tryn. His only observation of her as a person, describes her as someone who is capable of terrifying others on her appearance alone - perhaps even someone notorious. His descriptions of the family were far from flattering.

Trijn may indeed have been a remarkable woman and as her descendant my natural inclination is to lean toward that interpretation of what we currently know about her. She was, undoubtedly, a survivor and she certainly commanded interest and attention. But the known evidence is inconclusive as to whether they point to a life that included a number of remarkable events and trends or a remarkable character.

(Passenger) ShipVoyage On 27 January 1662 the Hoff van Zealandt departed Wielingen enroute to Wielingen, de Caep de Goede Hoop, where it docked on 25 July 1662. Catharina Ustings was among the passengers on board. It had departed Wielingen with 400 men on board. It was an eventful and harrowing five month journey. According to the governor's journal of the day, the Hoff van Zeelant had put back to te Veer, where skipper Cornelis Drelingcourt was removed by the Directors because of complaints by the crew, chief officer Joost van Stappen being appointed in his place. Many of the crew had deserted at te Veer. The ship finally docked at the Cape in hazy weather under the command of provisional skipper van Stappen. Also aboard was the junior merchant Paulus de Maulier who was very ill, the bodies of 20 people who had died enroute from scurvy and 50 more sick with it; but all aboard "more or less" affected and orders were issued for "refreshment of the sick".16,17,4
