These two sons were again named in the inventory drawn
up in 1713, after the death of their grandmother, Geesje

On 15th July 1721 Hendrik Cloete petitioned the Council of
Policy, stating that he had already reached the age of 26
years but could not provide proof since the baptismal book
of Drakenstein, where he was baptised, had for many years
been missing, and therefore asked for a grant of 'veniam
aetatis' (majority) so that he could manage his own affairs.
