I found an entry online which corresponds exactly to Jan's marriage to Margaretha Hasewinkel (even in date). This record mentions a birthdate of 1694 in "Osterode". Although "Osterode" doesn't seem to exist, and the handwritten copy of the family tree that I got all this information says:

"The original of this was compiled by Robert Shand Gordon from particulars taken mainly from "Geslacht-Register de Oude Kaapsche Familien" (gecompileerd door Christoffel Coetzee de Villiers and published by George McCall Theal in HJune 1984. According to "Geslacht-Register" the original Jan Andries Truter "bass van Compagnies' tuin alhier" came from Oosterhout, province of North Brabant in the Netherlands. This copy of the original was made and extended by George Barrow Gordon on the 26/10/1974"

Die Truter naam het sy oorsprong van 'n Duitse man Trudhari, - 'n magtige nasie. Jan Andries arriveer in die Kaap De Goede Hoop op 20 September 1722 as 'n soldaat aan boord die VOC skip "SLEEWIJK". Hierdie skip, met 'n volume van 520 ton, vertrek vanaf Hellevoetsluis op 13 Mei 1722 toegerus deur die Amsterdamse Sakekamer. Die skip se kaptein was Claas Koster. Die "Sleewijk" het vasgemeer by die Kaap vanaf 20 September 1722 tot 23 Oktober 1722. Op 12 Oktober 1722 word Jan Andries opgeneem in die hospitaal en na sy herstel besluit hy om aan te bly in die Kaap. Hierdie inligting is geneem uit die skip se loneregister. Hy was die "Baesthuynier", "Boss of the Company's Local Garden" in 1727. Hy was die hooftuinier vanaf 1723 tot 1725 en in sy hoedanigheid het hy op 6 Mei 1730 'n verslag aan die Kaapse Goewerneur, die Agbare Jan de la Fontaine, aangaande die beplanting van die sandduine langs Tafelbaai.
