Horaks in Germany around or before 1700?

Surnames: Horak
I live in South Africa & my father, Dr Johan Horak, has traced our family tree back to the first Horak to arrive in SA. His name was Jan Andries Horak. He was born in Hannover, Germany and came to the Cape as an employee of the Dutch East India Company in approx. 1734 (have also read 1745). From then onwards, my father has traced the family in South Africa.

But what I am looking for is information regarding Jan Andries before he left Germany. Did he have siblings? Where did they end up? WHo was his father? When did the name migrate from Eastern Europe to Western Europe?

If anyone can help or is interested in Horaks in SOuth Africa, please get in touch!
