He might be the Johannes Steyn, wagtmeester, referred to in the following document written by Johan Barkhuizen.

Swellendamse opstand,1795

Na die Tweede grensoorlog was daar as gevolg van ongelukkigheid met die regering „n opstand van die burgers van Graaff-Reinet en Swellendam. Landdros Maynier en Faure se rol in die Tweede Grensoorlog was sekerlik ook „n groot bron van ergenis. Die Swellendamse burgers het Faure uit die pos van landdros geskop en „n Collegie Nationaal gestig met Hermanus Steyn as leier. Ek dink nogal dat Jan Barkhuysen, na al sy moeite om militêre hulp en ammunisie by die politieke raad te kry, lekker omgekrap met die uiteinde van die 1793 grensoorlog was.

Ek weet nie hoe groot sy rol in die Swellendamse opstand van 1795 was nie maar hy was wel op een of ander manier betrokke. In „n brief wat Du Pisane , die Kommandant van die “Nationaale”, aan Steyn skryf vra hy dat Steyn „n afskrif aan “die manhafte heer Pieter Ferreira en edele Heer W. Barkhuysen” gee.

In 1795 is die Kaap formeel deur die Britse regering oorgeneem en die beheer van die VOC het tot „n einde gekom. In November 1795 is Faure in sy pos as landdros herstel. Jan Barkhuysen en al die Swellendamse burgers het „n eed onderteken 98

dat hulle trou sweer aan die Britse koning,

George die derde.

Jan Willem Barkhuysen het steeds in die tydperk van die eerste Britse besetting van die Kaap en die Bataafse bewind, daarna, „n hoë aansien in die distrik Swellendam gehad. Hy is in Oktober 1795 weer as Heemraad genomineer. Die nuwe goewerneur, Graaf MaCartney, het egter die eerste twee name op die kortlys aanvaar. Daniël du Plessis en oud-heemraad Christiaan de Jager d‟ oude is toe as nuwe heemrade aangestel eerder as die twee ou strydrosse uit die Langkloof, Pieter Ferreira en Jan Willem Barkhuysen.

Pieter Ferreira sou nie weer genomineer word as heemraad nie maar Jan Willem Barkhuysen is weer op 4 Desember 1797 genomineer. Die kortlys vir hierdie rondte was: “Wagtmeestr Johs Steyn benevens de oud Heemraden Petrus Pienaar, GF Rautenbach, en JW Barkhausen” Johannes Steyn en Petrus Pienaar is aangestel.
