He was of s’Gravenhage in the Netherlands. He emigrated to the ZAR in 1894. He was appointed by WIERDA to the DPW of the ZAR as a trainee draughtsman in temporary capacity at a salary of £180 per annum, but resigned to become clerk to the Volksraad of the ZAR. In the South African War he joined the Hollander Corps where he was engaged and wounded in the Battle of Elandslaagte. He was captured and deported to St Helena as prisoner of war. Schoeman (2011: 161) records that he worked in the [Pretoria?] Deeds Office after the war. He returned to the Netherlands, where he died (date unknown) (Ploeger, 1989: 17).
