- [S664] H.C.V. Leibbrandt Compiler, (Castle Street, Cape Town: W.A. Richards & Sons, 1902), p.140:  June 29th. Some Hottentoos of Gonnema's tribe reported to various freemen here that Gonnema had surrounded somewhere on a point of land, whence they could neither retire nor advance, eight of our burghers, who, without permission, had gone up to shoot some large game for the needs of their families. His object was to cut them off from all supplies, except what they had with them, that they might perish in consequence, but as this rumour seems to be rather untruthful, it was accepted as false.
pp.150-141:  July 4th. The rumours spread by the Hottentoos regarding the remaining away of the eight freemen above mentioned (see 29th June) are still continuing, and it is feared, not without reason, that should they not return shortly, or other tidings are obtained of them, there may be some truth in the rumour, as the privileged time for their staying away will soon be past.. Hereinafter cited as Journal 1671-1674, 1676.
- [S21] Date estimated by compiler, Delia Robertson and, unless there is corroborating information, should not be considered as anything more than a guide - based on date of remarriage of spouse, Maria Hendricksz.
