koster of the Swartland Church 2
of Waterschilpadskuil, Swartland 3
born circa January 1749, Scherpenzeel in Gelderland 4
baptized 26 January 1749, Scherpenzeel in Gelderland 5
died between March and June 1794, (based on filing date of will) 6
will dated 1 March 1794
and filed 2 July 1794
He became a member of the Swartland congregation in December
1773. (Swartland memberhsip register, with a note that he had come
with an attestation from the fatherland

In 1784 he memorialized the Council of Justice thus:

He was Jan Rust, originally from Scherpenzeel, now ex-koster of the
Swartland Church. He had been a 'young sailor' (this was a grade) in
the service of the Company, and in 1775 he was discharged, in order,
at the request of the Swartland Congregation, to enter on the duties
of Koster, on condition that if he could no longer perform the same,
he would ask for burger papers.

Having now been relieved of those duties, he asks for burger rights.
(Cape Archives: Requesten, 1784, no. 15)

In their will of 1787 his parents-in-law named him an executor of their
joint will.

When he made his will on the 1st March 1794 he was described as
being sick in body, and he presumably died not long afterwards, for
the will was filed 2nd July of the same year and in a codicil to her
will, dated September 1794, Anna van der Westhuizen, noted that
her son-in-law had died.

In this will he stated that his parents were no longer living.
