NotesIn 1705 Adam Tas together with Henningh Hùijsing and Willem Willemsz van Zijl drew up a petition against Willem Adriaan van der Stel which they despatched to the the Company in Den Haag. They complained he exceeded his powers as governor and accused him of corruption, including using company resources and slaves to develop his private estate Welgelen; that he extorted bribes from freemen seeking to obtain land. The petition was signed by 63 of the 550 vrijburhers, including Hans Jacob Conterman, Pierre Rousseau, Claas van Westhuijsen and Jacob Kloet.6
On 15 February 1714 Scipio Africanus was made a captain of the 'Hottentots' by Willem Adriaan van der Stel and was identifed as the brother and heir of Hasdrubal. A mere 60 years after the arrival of the first white settlers, the Khoe and San had been shunted off their lands and deprived of their inherent right to choose their own leaders or follow their own succession customs.7
On 15 February 1714 Hercules was made a captain of the 'Hottentots' by Willem Adriaan van der Stel and was identifed as the brother and heir of Hartloop. A mere 60 years after the arrival of the first white settlers, the Khoe and San had been shunted off their lands and deprived of their inherent right to choose their own leaders or follow their own succession customs.7
On 15 February 1714 Hannibal was made a captain of the 'Hottentots' by Willem Adriaan van der Stel and was identifed as the brother and heir of Jason. A mere 60 years after the arrival of the first white settlers, the Khoe and San had been shunted off their lands and deprived of their inherent right to choose their own leaders and/or follow their own succession customs.8
On 15 February 1714 Kouga Jr. was made a captain of the 'Hottentots' by Willem Adriaan van der Stel and was identifed as the son and heir of Kouga Snr. A mere 60 years after the arrival of the first white settlers, the Khoe and San had been shunted off their lands and deprived of their inherent right to choose their own leaders or follow their own succession customs.7
Monsterrollen and Opgaafrollen (Muster and tax rolls)1731 Jonker van Macassar and Rosetta van Java were enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in the, along with two sons, presumably Johannis van de Caep and Adriaan van der Caep. Recorded with them were two male slaves, who would have been one of the following individuals Alexander van Couchin, Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis. All of these individuals appear variously in the record connected to one or both of the principles. Significantly, Willem Duijsert, recorded as Willem Duytsers is living with the family. Is he perhaps their servant kindly taken in and allowed to run his 150 sheep on the family's lands due to a longstanding friendship? Duijsert and Jonker van Macassar, who on that occasion was recorded as Sriyay Moeda, were among those whom, in 1706, signed in support of Willem Adriaan van der Stel.9

Company JournalOn on 23 January 1699 Willem Adriaan van der Stel was mentioned in the Simon: About noon two shots were fired from Lion's Head, and at sunset the vessels “Stad Ceulen” and “Drie Kroonen” arrived in a fair state of health and condition, on board of which were the Hon. Councillor Extraordinary and Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel and family, who succeeds his father, Simon van der Stel.45
On on 26 January 1699 Willem Adriaan van der Stel was mentioned in the Simon: the new Governor was busy on the pier very early this morning, in order to land the boxes containing the young trees and all further kinds of plants, and have the whole conveyed to the Company's gardens.45
On on 31 January 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): January 31. Arrival of an English return ship, “The Fame,” from Madras.45
On on 1 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 1. Rev. Petrus Calden administers the sacrament at Stellenbosch; the sick visitor reads the service here.. Also mentioned: Dom:e Petrus Kalden.45
On on 2 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 2. The Commissioners are daily busy taking Company's stock here and in the country at the stations; as soon as they have finished the Hon. van der Stel will be publicly introduced to the people.45
On on 9 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 9. Landdrost Ditmar of Stellenbosch ordered to command the farmers to bring their corn to the Castle, as they are getting daily more negligent in doing so. The return fleet is daily expected, hence the necessity that they should be ordered to bring in as soon as possible all the wheat already threshed. As draft oxen were also required here, he was ordered to send 50.. Also mentioned: Michiel Ditmar.45
On on 11 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 11. The Commissioners having taken proper stock of all the Company's property here, the whole was handed over to the new Governor. Upon this the drums were beaten, and both military and burghers appeared under arms, when the son was solemnly introduced to the people by his father, the ex- Councillor Extraordinary and Governor Simon van der Stel. A general pardon was also proclaimed for the fugitive servants of the Company, viz., Antonie Oldendorp and Benedictus Sweitzer, who were hiding in the wilderness, should they appear within four weeks at the Castle and promise obedience.. Also mentioned: Antonie Oldendorp and Benedictus Sweitzer.45
On on 12 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 12. Resolution of Council. Some smith's coals ordered to be landed from the “Venhuizen". The bad state of the harvest this year, evident from the returns, about 3,000 muids less than last year, whilst 200 muids are required monthly for the garrison, independent of the quantity necessary for the ships and the people with their slaves. It is supposed, however, that the people did not make correct returns, and therefore they were to he advised by the Commissioners to state what they really have, that the Council might be spared the pain of taking other steps. Henceforth, all corn passing the Fort is to be kept there; and the burghers, whenever they require any, are to be provided with two or three muids. A list of the names of the latter is to be framed to see what quantity they bring to the mill, that the wheat crop may be managed in the most economical manner possible until the next harvest, and more seed saved for sowing. The subject of the Company's forests was discussed and their decay; also the heavy cost of fuel required by the people of the Cape district, and it was decided that the Governor and some members of the Council shall at an early day personally inspect the whole.45
On on 13 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 13. Arrival of the return fleet under the Hon. Councillor Extraordinary Daniel Heyns, who is landed in State by order of the Governor, being attended by Secunde Elzevier and Fiscal Blesius. On shore he and family are welcomed with thirteen guns and the dipping of flags. Soldiers and burghers under arms. The Commissioner takes his quarters in the new Governor's house. Three volleys were fired and also the guns of the fort discharged; and once more he was welcomed with a glass of wine. The Commissioner Heyns is publicly introduced to the people in his capacity as general inspector, &c.. Also mentioned: Samuel Elsevier, Joan Blesius and Commissioner Daneil Heijns.45
On on 21 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 21. The Commissioner lays his papers before the Political Council; and, amongst others, mentions that it was the wish of the Indian Government that he should inspect False Bay, which Commander Claas Bichon had neglected to do last year, to see whether it is not safer than Table Bay. It was decided on this point that the Commissioner, the Governor and two members of the Council, with two of the chief and most experienced skippers of the present fleet, should on Monday next proceed thither over land, and that one of our vessels should to-day leave for that bay, to be used there. All this will be more fully seen in the Resolution, viz.: “The Commissioner states that the Indian Government had received various reports of different persons, and even of those on the return fleet under Commander Pronck which had called here, concerning the fitness of False Bay, in which the ships could lie securely the whole year, and not only during March, April, September and October. Table Bay was very dangerous for ships, and the Company could not anchor anywhere during that season without great danger or loss. In order to know the real merits of the said bay, the Indian Board had deemed it very necessary to have an exact inquiry made into its character, and entrusted the matter to Claas Bichon, by instructions given to him on the 30th November, 1697, and to two of the most experienced skippers, to be appointed by him. He was to examine the bay carefully, sound it, and make an exact chart of it. He was, further, not only to make a copy of the same and draw up a concise report for the Board mentioned, but also one for the Directors. But he having failed to do so, and in order to remove all doubts on the subject, the Indian Council had once more resolved to have the investigation made, and had entrusted it to him (Heyns). But though not required to go personally, he believed that the best interests of the Company would be served by his proceeding thither in company of the Governor, two members of the Council, and also two of the most experienced skippers, leaving on Monday next overland, that everything might be thoroughly examined and a full report made by him to the Directors. It was also decided to despatch one of the vessels thither to-day. It was further resolved that every skipper of the return fleet should be provided with an order, empowering him to take over into his vessel what he requires out of the "Tamboer frigate".. Also mentioned: Commissioner Daneil Heijns.45
On on 25 February 1699 in the Willem Adriaan (as translated): February 25. Nine fat slaughter cattle ordered from Robben Island.45
