  • Notes 
    • Van Bruintjieshoogte, Somerset. Visagie skryf dat dit nie voorheen bekend was nie dat
      Lourens Jacobus Erasmus (b3c9d1 =27/3/1774) en sy drie seuns, Jacob, Coert en Lourens, in Augustus 1835 op vertrek na oorkant die Koloniale grens gestaan het. Benewens die berigte oor Louis Tregardt,is die dokument oor die Erasmusse se planne die vroegste skriftelike verslag oor spesifieke persone wat beplan het om te emigreer.

      Blykbaar het hulle toe tog besluit om nog te wag, want lyste dui vaagweg aan dat hulle tussen 24/5/1836 en l/6/1837 vertrek het. Lourens Jacobus sr het egter
      toe nie getrek nie. Coert Erasmus en sy gesin het in Natal gaan woon, maar blykbaar later verhuis na die omgewing van Pretoria, waar die plaas Rooipoort aan die Apiesrivier op 25/10/l 849 vir horn aangeteken is.

      (Lyste 8, 9,; LG 14, R. Hart - Hudson, 31/g/1835, pp 107-110, KAB; De V, pp 203,922; J 182 Bruintjieshoogte, no 92, KAB; (YZ+J, p 181; SAG 2, p 220; LG 55, Bruintjieshoogte, no 6, pp 60, 63, KAB; RAK 2433, 25/10/1849,no 584,TAB).

      Tobi Swart se navorsing bevestig uit sy Testament dd "Wachplaats", distrik Potchefstroom Desember 1871 dat Coert ERASMUS toe die wewenaar van Aletta Catharina STEENBERG en Susanna Catharina BOTHA, weduwee van Daniel Pieter LIEBENBERG was.

      Voorhuwelikse kontrak: dd 15.11.1873:

      Coert Erasmus, weduwenaar, woon distrik Pretoria; Aletta Elizabeth Fick gebore Nel, weduwee, woon distrik Pretoria; "van voorname om eersdaags in het huwelijk te begeven"

      Testament: dd 28.12.1876:

      Coert Erasmus Senr en Aletta Elizabetha Nell [sic]; "echtliede, woonagtig te Mooiplaats, distrik Pretoria"
