Abraham Bastiaansz Pyl

On the evening of Friday 28th September he was pulled from the river by
the children of Jan van Zijlen and taken to their house and put before the
fire to dry and given a bed for the night. About midnight Jan van Zijlen was
woken by screams and found Pijl out of his bed with his throat cut and a
bloody knife by him.

On the next day came the Landdrost Pieter Robbertsz, and the heemraden
Dirk Coetse and Gulliam du Toit, accompanied by the surgeon Jean du Plessi,
where they found Abraham Pijl still alive. He told them by gestures and words
that he himself was responsible and that his wife was the cause, but gave no
further explanation. (1 STB 18/154, 4th October 1703, pages 183-186)

He buried two children in the Stellenbosch churchyard in 1700.
