  18. [S418] Anna J. Böeseken, Slaves and Free Blacks at the Cape 1658-1700, p.129. 4.9.1671, V, pp. 67-69: Anthonij from Bengal borrowed from Jacob Cornelis Rosendael the sum of f 2 900. The first payment of f 1 200 would fall due when the return fleet of 1672 left the harbour; the second payment of f l 700 after the first section of the next return fleet from Batavia had been in the harbour for a fortnight. [DR: Böeseken misinterpreted this transaction. See next two citations, i.e. Hatting & Upham.]
  19. [S606] J.L. (Leon) Hattingh, "A.J. Böeseken se Addendum van Kaapse slawe-verkoopstransaksies: Foute en regstellings", Kronos (Foute en regstellings) 9 (1984): Op bladsy 129 van die addendum, onder die datum 4.9.1671, gee Böeseken te kenne dat die vryswart Anthonij van Bengale van Jacob Cornelis Rosendael die aansienlike bedrag van 2 900 gulde geleen het maar vermeld nie waarvoor die lening gemaak is nie. Die sleutel hiervoor lê opgesluit in die voorafgaande drie bladsye van die betrokke bundle, te wete pp. 64-66. Dit behels die verkoopakte waarmee Rosendael sy huis en erf te Zeestraat (Strandstraat vandag) in Tafelvallei (soos Kaapstad destyds bekend gestaan het) asook 100 skape en 'n stuk tuinland elders aan Anthonij van Bengale verkoop het. Anthonij het onmiddellik 100 gulde in kontant betaal en toe 'n skuldbrief (wat Böeseken as 'n verkoopakte verstrek) vir die oorblywende 2900 gulde geteken. Hierdie is die vroegste grondtransaksie waarmee 'n vryswarte grond aan die Kaap deur aankoop bekom het en as sodanig is dit dus 'n uiters belangrike document wat Böeseken verswyg en vermink voorhou..

"Anthonij purchases (4 September 1671) 100 sheep, a garden (stuk tuingrond) higher up in Table Valley and an erf (with a house) in Zee Straat from the free-burgher Jacob Cornelisz: Rosendael (from Woerden [South Holland]). This purchase is highly significant. This is the 1st time ever that a free-black or mardijcker purchases property at the Cape. In terms of the contract Rosendael sells to Anthonij, described as a free-black and likewise burgher of this place (vrije swart insgelijx borger alhier) - a house and erf together with 100 sheep and a garden in Table Valley. For all this, he is to pay f 100 and register a debenture for f 2 900."
