born circa 1705 3
died circa March 1746 4
On the 21st March 1727 his stepfather, Claas Jansz van Rensburg
and his uncle Willem van Staden, acting on his behalf, received the
inheritance due the minor Marthinus van Staden in order to buy
him a quantity of breeding cattle. On the 8th August the amount
was stated to have been 2400 gulden. He was thus still a minor at
this date.

On the 7th April 1730 the Weeskamer granted him his request to be
allowed to have control of the inheritance due him from his mother's
estate. Since no other reason is given, this was presumably on the
usual grounds of his having now attained his majority of 25 years of
age. (MOOC 1/7, page 21).

He and his wife also had a farm called the Doornekraal, on the Vette
