In Personalia of the Germans at the Cape, Dr Hoge states

that he had arrived at the Cape as a soldier and become a burger in 1686. He also states that Voormeester and his wife were sentenced in 1699 to four months' hard labour for selling stolen goods. (CJ 725:243). (source: J.A.Hoge, Personalia of the Germans at the Cape, 1946, page 441)

On the 18th August 1713 he swore a declaration that in

the previous year Isaac Pietersz who was working for Voormeester, described as an aged man, demanded that he be given wine to drink and, upon being refused, grabbed the old man and flung him into the fire. Had not a daughter of Robbert Jansz van Hoorn come to his aid he might have been badly burnt. (1STB 18/156, page 29)
