Note concerning Various early Cape individuals, written by Mansell Upham, January - February 2011 (Personal Library, unknown repository reference) "1692 Den 19 8bris aen Stellenbosch een kint gedoopt waer van de vader is Andrijs Oelofse, de moeder Sara Leenderts, tot getuijg[e] stont Roelof Pasman, ende Fijtie Schalk, is genaemt Teure [My thanks to Mansell Upham for clearing up this transcription and also for pointing out that Teure is possibly a corruption of Thyre - or more conventionally Thyra - that in Danish/Norwegian 'y' is the same as 'u' in Afrikaans -i.e. Thyre pronounced Tuur or Teur - and that although the etymologies may conflict, there is a case to be made for the interchangeability of Dorothea and Thyra in terms of pagan Norsk names surviving in post-Christian Scandinavia.]."

Arrived on the ship "Huis te Voesen" as a sailor on 18 Mar 1668 - http://resources.huygens.knaw.nl/das/detailVoyage/91568 -

Particulars - A conspiracy was discovered aboard and the instigators were punished at the Cape.

Nothing is known of Andrijs /Andreas between his arrival and his marriage in 1690, suggesting that perhaps he was part of the conspiracy mentioned above. It could be that he was sentenced to hard labour as punishment for taking part in that conspiracy. (Speculation)
