  • Notes 
    • "Bittereinder" wat as burger saam met genl. de Wet en genl. Prinsloo in die Tweede Vryheidsoorlog, of Anglo-Boere Oorlog gedurende 1899 tot 1902 gedien het. Hy staan ook bekend as Hans Brightman.
      Boer op die plaas De Brug, ongeveer 50km suid-oos van Bethlehem op die ou Watervalpad. Sy beroep word ook aangedui as kontrakteur op sy vrou se sterfkennis.
      Op sy vrou se sterfkennis word sy van gespel as Blignaut, maar op 'n manuskrip, "Die Bittereinder", wat deur sy seun Johannes Gerhardus Brummer Blignault geskryf oor Johannes Gerhardus Snr se wedervaringe in die ABO, word dit gespel as Blignault.
