What happened on 14 October 1773?

While researching my family tree I found that husband and wife, Johannes Frederik VAN RENSBURG and Maria Elizabeth (born DU BUIS) both died on 14 October 1773. I'm not sure where they died but would like to find out where and what happened?

Unfortunately I don't know where they died, but it would have been listed as "Cape Of Good Hope" obviously, given the time frame.

Could it have been a farm attack or tragedy? It may have been a sickness of some sort, although I doubt that they would have died on the same day - maybe their deaths were only discovered on that day?

Is anyone able to help with some information?
