From the next City Coins auction, November 2020

ABO (Burger J.F. van Eden)

Johannes van Eden from the farm Weltevreden, Somerset East stated “Burgher and Spy” under Rank on his ABO application form and noted service in the Commando’s of Genl Kritzinger and Commandant Lötter. He was one of the unwounded Rebels taken prisoner at Paardefontein and was sentenced to death on 20 September 1901 in Graaff Reinet for High Treason under arms and murder. This was commuted to Penal Servitude for life on Bermuda, but the Royal Commission reduced the sentence to 3 years in November 1902. He returned to the Cape Colony on the SS Sunda and was sent to Tokai Gaol on 16 Feb 1903 as prisoner no 374. He was granted partial amnesty on 25 March 1903.
