[S356] E-mails from Mansell Upham (e-mail address) to Delia Robertson, 2000 to 2008 (Personal Library, Email Upham) "citing CA: CJ 2598, no. 50, dated 13 May 1713) Upham notes: Their joint will states that they were lawfully married: Guilliam Frisnet van Bergen op Zoom, out omtrent 52 jaaren, burger en inwoonder alhier, en Armozijn van de Caab, oud omtrent 55 Jaaren, egte Luijden [emphasis is mine]. No marriage could be located at either the Cape church or at Stellenbosch. The records for the early marriages at Drakenstein have not survived. Records of civil marriages at the Cape after the formation of the Commissioner for Marriage Affairs in 1678, have not survived. Prior to this, civil marriages were permitted in terms of specific resolutions of the Council of Policy."
