Jacob Cloeten 1
corporal in the Dutch East India Company's service (1693) 2
born Cologne 3
died 23 May 1693, at the Cape (murdered) 4
In the muster rolls dated 15 February 1658 he is listed as a
member of 'Hermans Companie' as one of the three owners.

In 1660 he is listed with his wife, Fijckje Raderotjes and three
children, still part of the Hermans Company but there are now
just two members of the company, he and the eponymous
Harman Remajen. Working with (or for) them are three hands
from the Netherlands (Nederlandse dienaars), Jacob Bruijns
from Bom, Pieter Raderotjes, her brother, and Hans Cornelisz
van Langeland.

In 1661 he is no longer part of Hermans Company, but is listed
as an individual free farmer at Uijtwijk with his wife and three
children, and Netherlands hands Toecke Sijboltz from St. Als-
kercq and Bastiaen Castier from Oostenden.

André van Rensburg, on his Stamouers web site, states that in
January 1671 his daughter was placed with Frans Gerrits and
wife, and his son with Wouter Cornelis Mostert. He does not
give a source for this information, but it was presumably in
preparation for his leaving the Cape.

In February 1671, his required time as a freeman served, he was
granted a passage back to the Netherlands on the return fleet.

Later he re-entered the Company's service and was a corporal
at the time of his death in 1693.
