In 1765 he petitioned the Council of Policy at the Cape, requesting
the freehold of the cattle farm 'Houd Constant' beyond the Twenty
Four Rivers, which he had had in loan for some years. He stated
that he was prepared to pay the ordinary annual recognition fee
of 24 rixdollars and offered 100 rixdollars as the purchase price.
(Requesten (Memorials) 1715-1806 by H.C.V Leibbrandt, p.102a)

This farm had been inherited by his wife, Maria Magdalena Burger,
from her mother in 1757.

In 1776 he reported that the mill on his farm at the Twenty Four
Rivers had been burnt down and that he believed it had been done
maliciously by one of his slaves and asked the VOC to take over
this slave and thus be housed far away from him and his property.
