Upham 'UL06 Keeping the gate of Hell…', Uprooted Lives Unfurling the Cape of Good Hope's Earliest Colonial Inhabitants (1652-1713), "On 3 February 1681 Cupido van Bengale was charged with the crime of having had criminal conversation with his master's daughter. His situation was further aggravated by additional charges of fornication about three years ago. This had been with another European female (Anna Elisabeth Roleemo of whom see later), both before and after her marriage diverse en ontallige maalen on various and numerous occasions “thus adding to his offence the greater crime of adultery”.
...She appears to have escaped censure."
