Vrijbriewen and Burgher StatusDirk Bosch became a burgher on 22 October 1668, in Dutch vryburgher or vrijburgher, initially a status in which a soldier or other employee of the VOC was released from their contractual obligations to the VOC and permitted to farm, become a tradesman, or work for others. Subsequently some individuals, including the Huguenot refugees, were brought to the Cape specifically to farm and were burghers from the time of their arrival. He was granted vrijburgher status for five years following diverse malen klaegs gewijs versoek or several requests by his wife Geertruyd Meijntinghs who said he had escaped death several times due to stroke or paralysis in the hands and limbs, that he could no longer carry out his duties. She asked too that the couple be granted a suitable place to live and take care of their two small children in an honest way … this was a small, rundown house with a garden right next to the western facade of the Fort. Her request was granted and the couple had to pay 600 carolus guilders, in three equal payments of f 66 19, the first on 25 February 1669. There were several conditions including that they kept control of Maria van Guinea, owned at the time by Johannes Pretorius, who would subsequently marry the recently widowed Geertruijd Meijntings. They were permitted to sell sugar beer - als eenelijck suijker bier.9
Slave TransactionsOn 26 March 1695 Louis van Satrapatnam was sold by Remeus Oole to Geertruyd Meijntinghs, for Rds. 70.10
