Muster Rolls / Monsterrolle
The Muster Rolls (monsterrollen), are preserved in the form of transcripts in the Cape Archives as series VC 39-55 and 103, were apparently yearly lists of the inhabitants at the Cape, drawn up by Dutch East India Company (VOC) officials, and sent to the authorities in the Netherlands where they were preserved.
These are copies done by hand at the end of the 19th Century by George McCall Theal, from the records preserved in the VOC archives at The Hague, Netherlands.
