    • Ras, Hendrik: see above No. 14; Land: Lourensz: reports as follows: that he had carefully investigated the matter, and the conduct of the Deputy-Land: Christof: Counitstz: in seizing the cattle of some agriculturalists, but could find no evidence that Counitz: had either bartered or sold any of the cattle; that if it had been done, it mush have happened at the "Clapmuts", especially because he had heard that some Hot: cattle were running there; that on the 10th Aug: last he had gone there with deputed Heemraden, and driven out 11 cattle from the troop of the Postholder Corporal Johan George Straasburg, pointed out by the Burgher Dan: Bokkelenberg, which, according to the Corporal had been presented to him by the Hottentots, after the cattle had been given to them; which Hottentots had given other cattle also, a fact which deponent is convinced as will be shown by the declaration of Com: H.H. under Letter A.

      He has however also heard that Counits: had for food and drink given for himself and men and Hottentots, 4 oxen to Christ: Liebenberg, which he had no right to do, and which he had not reported.

      Regarding the number of cattle seized by Counits:, his report states (Let. B.). that it was 279, and according to the statement of the "Veldwachter", Joseph Leendert, (Let. C.) there were 277, out of which according to report of Deputy Landdrost 195 arrived at Stellenbosch and Klapmuts; that of the rest, some had been left behind as sick, and others killed, whilst 59 had been stolen by some Hottentots at the Groenberg, on the farm of the late Gid: Joubert.

      If jou you refer to the Memorial of Ras and others (see above), you will find that they give an excess of 20 over this number, and if their request be carefully considered, and compared with the report of the Deputy Land:, and the declaration of the Veldwachter Josteph Leendert, it will appear that they are more liable to mistakes in this matter than the Deputy Land: and the "Veldwachter", whilst, according to the write (Land:) they (Ras and others) could have nothing certain to rely on, for they state that they were not present when the cattle was removed from their farms, so that the numbers were given them by their servants and slaves; whilst in the statement of the "Veldwachter, cattle are mentioned which were not even on farms, but were running in the veld, yea! even in Hot: kraals, of which latter cattle some might easily have been left heind, when the troop was driven away.

      The undersigned is surprised that S. v. Dyk dares to mention 88 cattle of his own and 7 bartered ones, as taken away from him by the Deputy Land: as he is well aware that v. Dyk does not own 8 beasts, so that if he had 88 he must, like his mates have stolen them from the Hottentots, or bartered them from these natives; they are therefore not ashamed to demand back their own as well as the bartered cattle.

      In this they act foolishly, as you know more or less how much cattle they have stolen or bartered.

      Take the smallest number, and it will be more than 1000, as appears from the evidence of the Burgher Pieter de Bruyn, and the interrogatories of the Burgher Matth: Willemsz:, deposited in the Court of Justice, and this number far surpasses that of the 299 given by them.

      They are therefore not justified to demand back the cattle, and ought to be satisfied with your kindness in pardoning them for all their misdeeds.

    • Ras, Hendrik; Krugel (H); van Dyk (Sybrand); and Basson (A.D.); agriculturists; complain that some time ago the Deputy-Landdrost had visited their farms and cattle posts, accompanied by two "veldwagters", and some Hottentots, and showed them a written order requiring them, in the name of the Acting Governer D.V. Henghel, and Land: P. Lourensz; on pain of corporal and capital punishment, to surrender to the said deputy all the cattle bartered by them from the Hottentots, and which the Deputy had to take away with him;

      that they had to allow the Hottentots to drive out whatever they liked, and that the latter not only took the bartered cattle, but also a large number belonging to themselves, and other people; that they took 12 beasts from the residence of Jacob Crugel, and 64 from his cattle post etc. etc. That the result has been that petitioners have been extremely impoverished, and therefore beg that their cattle may be restored to them. Signed by H. Krugel and the others. See below. (Resident "Over" the Piqueniers Kloof. No 48c). (No.14. 21st of July).

    • On Sunday the 1st of March 1739 Barbier, accompanied by eight others '97 Hendrik Kruger, Lodewyk Putter, Frans Kampher, Arnoldus Basson, Hendrik Ras, Jan Olivier, and Sybrand van Dyk, all mounted and armed, and Hans Ras, unarmed and on foot '97 appeared before the door of the church at the Paarl as the congregation was leaving after service, when Sybrand van Dyk requested the people to listen to the reading of a placaat. This document was the joint production of Barbier and another of the disaffected party named Pletsholt, and was written in very corrupt Dutch. In it Mr. Van den Henghel and the landdrost Pieter Lourens were accused of tyranny, corruption, favouring Chinese and Hottentots above Europeans, and other misconduct, and the farmers vtrere advised not to pay any more taxes.

      After Barbier had read the document. Van Dyk, with the assistance of some v^romen among the listeners, pasted it on the v^all of the church. There was such a strong feeling of sympathy with its
      contents that no one remonstrated, and the party rode from farm to farm that afternoon unmolested.
      The document was blown from the wall of the church that evening, and was secured by the landdrost's messenger, who forwarded it to the fiscal in Capetown. It is still to be seen in the records of the court of justice.

      Some other seditious papers were written and circulated bv Barbier, and so confident were the disaffected persons in their power to maintain their independence that one of them, Jan Eas, delivered at the castle gate a circular disowning the authority of the acting governor and the landdrost, though two of the cattle barterers, Matthys Willems and Pieter de Bruyn, who appeared openly in CapetovTn, had been arrested, and were then in prison. Barbier was now proclaimed an outlaw, and instruc-
      tions were given to the landdrost to have him seized and brought before the high court of justice, or, if resistance was made, to shoot him.

      Just at this time a horde of Bushmen made a raid upon the scattered farmers of Piketberg and the Bokkeveld, murdered two Europeans and several slaves, set fire to some houses, and swept off large herds of cattle. There had not been many complaints of these wild people of late years, the only instances being in 1728, 1731, and 1738. On the first of these occasions, December 1728, a
      party of Bushmen drove off the cattle from the farm of Jan Valk near Piketberg. Valk's neighbours assembled and pursued the robbers, who offered resistance when they were overtaken. Two Europeans were wounded, but a volley of slugs put to flight all the Bushmen who were not struck. The cattle were recovered, except two oxen.

      The government approved of the action of the colonists in following the robhers and firing upon them, but directed the landdrost to be careful that no provocation was given to Bushmen who did not first offend. In March 1731 some of those people drove off a herd of cattle from the farm of Hans Potgieter, but were pursued by twelve of Potgieter's neighbours, who hastily assembled and formed a commando. The robbers were overtaken, when s'^me of them were shot, and the cattle were re- covered. In 1738 other Bushmen drove off the stock of August Lourens, but were followed up, and the cattle were retaken without any bloodshed. By direction of the council of policy, the landdrost and board of militia of Stellenbosch then sent a discreet farmer to endeavour to enter into a friendly agreement with the Bushmen, and presents were made in hope of inducing them to abstain from robbery.

      The farmers of the frontier had no confidence in the success of such treatment, and when the raid took place early in 1739 they were seized with a general panic, fearing that the government would again try to conciliate rather than punish. Most of them in consequence aban- doned their farms and fell back towards the Cape. The government, however, acted in a different manner. The old burgher councillor Jan Kruywagen was instructed to raise a commando and follow up the marauders, and all who had joined Barbier were offered pardon if they would take part in the expedition. Fifteen of them accepted the offer at once, and the remainder shortly afterwards.

      Barbier managed to keep in concealment for a few months, but was eventually apprehended. On the
      12tb of November he was tried and condemned to death, and two days afterwards was executed. After the bar- barous manner of that time in Europe as well as in South Africa, his right hand was first cut off and then his head, and after death his body was divided into portions, which were affixed to posts in different parts of the country.

      This attempt at insurrection, petty as it was, was long afterwards used as an argument by r strong party in Holland, as well as by many officials of the East India Company, against an enlargement of the colony by send- ing out emigrants from Europe. A strong colony, in their opinion, would certainly in a short time throw off the control of the mother country and declare itself inde- pendent.

    Notas 
    • Martha Margaretha Lubbe was nooit met Sybrand van Dyk getroud nie. Hulle het ook nooit 'n verhouding gehad nie. Hierdie bewering (xxxx 1778) is verkeerd genoteer in die 1975-Geslagregister (p51) en daarna net so oorgeneem in die 1989 SAG.

      In feite was Sybrand en Sara de Klerk getroud tot haar dood êrens tussen 1785 (toe hulle gesamentlik 'n testament opgestel het) en 1801 (in Sybrand se boedelinventaris word genoem dat Sara reeds gesterf het).

      Martha Margaretha Lubbe was wel getroud met David Frederik Strauss in 1776, na die dood van sy eerste vrou Sara van Dyk in ongeveer 1774. Sara was die dogter van Sybrand van Dijk en Sara de Klerk.

      Ek vermoed dat J.H. van Dyk (opsteller van die 1975-register) se notas deurmekaar geraak het m.b.t. hierdie gesin.
