  3. [S707] Editor-in-chief C.J. Beyers Dictionary of SA Biography III, pp.784. On his way to Batavia T. arrived at the Cape (1689) in the Alkmaar, but circumstances prevented him from continuing his journey: at the Cape there was serious dissatisfaction with the local minister, the Rev. J. van Andel,* and the Council of Policy consequently appointed T. in his stead. Little is known of his four-year period of service at the Cape (1689-93). He was eventually transferred to Batavia, where he arrived only on 9.11.1693.
