Cornelis Cornelisz Mostert
Sara Janse Sarra
died circa 1681
Jan Cornelisz Mostert 1
born Utrecht 2
died 1718, probably 3
will dated 14 December 1717 4
So far as I can see his marriage in 1672 is the first record of his
presence at the Cape. There are a number of men named Jan
Cornelisz listed in both the muster rolls of free settlers and of
Company servants, but none with the birth place of Utrecht
(but the Company's rolls of this date generally do not record
birth place.

The Vrijboek of 1681 (Nationaal Archief, Den Haag, VOC: Over-
gekomen brieven en papieren uit Kaap de Goede Hoop en
Mauritius aan de Heren XVII en de kamer Amsterdam,
Inventory: 4017 (1681-1682) - supplied by Corney Keller), has
the following entry, however, which might refer to him:
Jan Cornelissen van Utrecht soldaat daar voor
anno 1661 met 't Wapen van Hollandt voor de Camer
Amsterdam aangelant

# The parents of Jan Cornelisz Mostert

It has long seemed to me probable that he and
Wouter Cornelisz Mostert were brothers.
Corney Keller has now provided me with the evidence which exists
in a Notarial document in the Utrecht Archives, whereby Marritgen
Jans, widow of Corneils Cornelisz Mostert, seeks authority for her
son Jan Cornelisz Mostert, resident at the Cape, to recover any
monies due to her from the estate of her son Wouter Cornelisz
Mostert, who has died at the Cape.
