      Sy nageslag se familienaam het by sy kleinkinders uitgesterf.


      Hy koop 2 maande na sy huwelik met Catharina Cloete beide plase Overveen en Bloemendal op 27 Aug 1717 van Maartin van Staden. In 1737 koop hy ook sy vader se ou plaas Kunnenberg en besit dus in totaal 180 morg. Hiervan dra hy in 1747 'n deel oor aan sy skoonseun Albertus Myburgh. Op 23 Nov 1744 is hy op aanbeveling van die Landros
      en Heemrade van Stellenbosch benoem tot Heemraad van Drakenstein. Die heemraadskap was 'n erebetrekking onder voorsitterskap van die Landros. Hulle het uitspraak gedoen in kleinere siviele geskille en verder beheer gehad oor wee, brue, water- verdeling ens. Hy was ook luitenant van die Burger-Kavallery van Stellenbosch. In 1753, is hy van hierdie betrekking onthef op eie versoek, omdat hy " zeer hewig van de jigt gequelt werde, zig
      daaronder buyten stat bevind omme gemelde Dienste langer naar behooren te kunnen waarnemen." Hy was landbouer van beroep op Bloemendal as hoofwoonplaas en Overveen en Het Schilpad. In 1754 is hy bereid om Rds. 100 te betaal vir sy leenplaas Klaas Voogtsrivier aan Cogmans Kloof. Met sy dood in 1762 was daar twee oorlewende kinders uit sy tweede huwelik met Aletta Keyser en drie uit sy derde huwelik. Sy weduwee Maria Fick oorleef ook 'n tweede huwelik met Arend Blyenberg en na haar dood erf haar seun Jacob in 1792 die oorblywende deel teen betaling van 14 000 gulde. [2, 27]
