|Samuel Walters 1
of De Drooge Valleij 3
born Prestburg 4
died 13 December 1725 5
| He first appears in the records of the Dutch East India Company|
in the Skeepssoldyboek of the ship Assendelft in 1695 which
contains his service record and record of pay. This tells us that
from 1696 we was at the Cape, and he first appears in the muster
roll of Company employees in the year 1697 as a solider, his origin
given as Prespoort, and continued as a soldier in the garrison at
Cape Town until 1705 when he is listed as a stable hand (stalknegt).
From July 1707 until at least October 1710, when his contract was
renewed for the third time he was hired out by the Dutch East India
Company to Samuel Elsevier as a farm hand.
On 1st November 1710 he was contracted out by the governor as a
hired hand to the burger Dirk Fion. The latter would pay him 15 gulden
a month over and above his board and keep. He, Samuel Walter, was
at all times still liabe for recall to his post as soldier when necessary.
The Skeepssoldyboek tells us that he left the Company's service on
the 24th February 1711 to become a free settler.
(My grateful thanks to Nico Walters for a copy of the Skeepssoldyboek.
