Cornelis Moll (17**-18**) was a printer and journalist with offices at offices at 12 Kortemark street Cape Town . (Often referred to as "C. Moll" or even "C. Mol").

Among the journals he was involved with include The Moderator (later De Meditator) in Cape Town, and De Natalier (with C.E. Boniface) in Pietermaritzburg, 1844.

Role in theatre

While there is little information on him, his offices at 12 Kortemark street Cape Town did serve as ticket office for Tot Nut en Vermaak in 1837. Furthermore he appears to have been a collaborator in a number of Boniface's theatrical and journalistic ventures, both in Cape Town in the 1830s and briefly in Durban in 1844, when he and Boniface founded De Natalier.
