In Personalia of the Germans at the Cape, Dr Hoge states
that he had arrived at the Cape as a soldier and become
a burger in 1686. He also states that Voormeester and his
wife were sentenced in 1699 to four months' hard labour
for selling stolen goods. (CJ 725:243). (source: J.A.Hoge,
Personalia of the Germans at the Cape, 1946, page 441)

On the 18th August 1713 he swore a declaration that in
the previous year Isaac Pietersz who was working for
Voormeester, described as an aged man, demanded that
he be given wine to drink and, upon being refused, grabbed
the old man and flung him into the fire. Had not a daughter
of Robbert Jansz van Hoorn come to his aid he might have
been badly burnt. (1STB 18/156, page 29)
