Notes on the above, added by Demornay du Toit, 5 December 2008.

Regarding the seventh son of Hendrik Frappe - Jan Cornelis:  His baptism date is given as 7th Nov 1728 and the date of his marriage as 4th June 1742 when (assuming he was born in the year of his baptism) he was no more than 14 years old, which seems unlikely. I do not have evidence of a different date of marriage (or birth), but can offer the following additional information.

Johannus (sic) Cornelis Frappe "uit Cabo de goede hoop" entered the service of the VOC on 22 Nov 1742 as a "jongen" (under 17 years of age) and ended his service with the Company due to his death on 6th Sepember 1753.

He left the Cape on the "Hofvliet" on 11th April 1743 and arrived in Batavia on 15th October 1743. Jacoba Petronella Lourens did not make this voyage. Neither of them appear to have been on the return voyage, which left Batavia on 17th October 1743 and arrived back at the Cape on 12th January 1744 (the "Hofvliet" was, incidentally, wrecked on 19th May 1744 on its way back to the Netherlands from the Cape). I have not been able to find any record of him making the return journey from Batavia (or elsewhere in the East) to the Cape, but it appears that there are gaps in the data. (Sources 1, 2).

Children of Hendrik Frappe and Christina van Zijl:

They had two more sons, both baptised in Amsterdam (Source 3):
Willem Hubert, baptised Amstel Kerk 30th October 1740
Wilhelmus Gerrardus, baptised Nieuwe Kerk 27th May 1742

Wilhelmus Christianus (b 1727) and Nicolaas Christianus (b 1730) both appear to have died before 7th June 1760, since they are not mentioned in the inventory of their mother"s estate of that date (Source 4). The former presumably died before 27th May 1742, the baptism date of Wilhelmus Gerrardus.

Regarding Hendrik Frappe"s arrival at the Cape. He is said to have arrived on the "Rosenburg" in 1706. The only ship with a similar name to arrive at the Cape in that year was the "Huis te Rozenburg", which left Texel on 9th May 1706 and arrived at the Cape on 11th December. There was also a ship called "Rozenburg" which made voyages to the Cape from 1750 onwards. Unfortunately, the names of those on board the "Huis te Rozenburg" are not (yet) available from my source, but it seems likely that this is the correct ship (Source 2).

Regarding Johannes de Waal, the husband of Hendrina Johanna Frappe. Regarding the name of his 10th child by Elizabeth van Eck - Magdalena. Her name is given as Helena in the inventory of her father"s estate. He died on 27th January 1768 and she died before that date. (Source 5)
