Pieter Jansz van der Westhuisen 1
born Brugge 2
died circa 1722 3
This family constructed from the agreement made on the occasion
of his second marriage on the inheritances of his children and his
deceased estate accounts of 1725.

He appears first in the muster rolls of free persons at the Cape in the
year 1662 working as a hand (knecht) for Tieleman Hendricks and continues
as such until at least 1667 (no rolls exist for the years 1668 and 1669). In 1670
he is in company with Hendrik Coster of Minden and in 1671 he is listed as a
daily worker among the freeburgers. In 1672 and 1673 he is still listed beside
Hendrik Coster (also labelled a free worker) until in 1674 he appears as a
married man, with three children in the household, presumably those of his
wife who was the widow of one Hendrik Barentsz.

On the 23rd March 1677 the Council of Policy granted, for 12 years, to Willem
Schalck and Pieter van de Westhuisen, land at Hout Bay which they were
required to farm efficiently, and to contribute one tenth of its prouce to the
Company each year.
