Her husband left for Holland in March 1718 and she is
listed in the muster rolls of that year as living on her own
in the Cape District: Hester Mostert wife of Benjamin

In December 1721 she requested of the Council of Policy
that she be allowed, with her two children, to join her
husband, Benjamin Wiese, in the Netherlands, travelling
on one of the ships of the return fleet and to be granted
free passage.

Her request was granted but only if she paid the usual
amount for her passage, although the children could
travel free. (Resolutions of the Council of Policy of
Cape of Good Hope, Dingsdagh den 9e December 172,
C. 58, pp. 2-6. TANAP

When the inventory of her deceased mother's property
was drawn up on the 26th October 1720 she was listed
as one of the heirs but by the time the estate accounts
were finalised on 22 March 1723, it is her children who
are listed. Yet, in 1728 she apparently baptised a child
in Amsterdam.
