BirthOrigin*Rosetta appears to have been from Java and was perhaps born there circa 1690. The date is estimated.2 
BaptismRosetta van Java was baptized before 8 March 1705. No record of this baptism has yet been found, however she could not have witnessed the baptism of Jacob Cornelisse if she had not been baptised.3 
Marriage De facto* In 1706 Rosetta van Java and Adam van Batavia were in a de facto relationship de Caep de Goede Hoop.4  
Marriage De facto* Circa 1710 Rosetta van Java and Jonker van Macassar were in a de facto relationship de Caep de Goede Hoop.2  
Marriage De facto* Circa 1730 Rosetta van Java and Bastiaen van Cijlon were in a de facto relationship Cabo de Goede Hoop.5  
Death*She died between 11 February 1733 and 24 April 1733, this timeframe is assumed. On 11 February, her children's father seeks the emancipation of his three children Amel, Talie and Adel by his 'slave' Rosetta van Ceijlon, in which application no mention is made of her decease, although the children had already been placed into the care of Abraham Decker and Daniel Thiebault. On 24 April, in the manumission of the children, their mother is described as deceased.6

(Spouse) Will On 24 January 1727, Jonker van Macassar 'appeared' before the Secretaris or Secretary of the Council of Policy, Daniel Thiebault, to execute his will with the assistance of a Portuguese interpreter. This assistance may have been accorded to him due to his royal status. He was in fact ill and confined to bed, so the official would have come to him. However, there is nothing in the record which indicates the will was ever probated. There are several edits in the original will. He is described as a Vrij gegeevene Leijffeijgen known to the Secretaris. His de facto wife Rosetta van Java named on this occasion as Rosetta van Java, is first described as sijne Concubine, this is deleted and substuted with de vrijswartinne. To her he bequeaths the slave Alexander van Couchin and stipulates that this bequest cannot be contested. To their son and daughter Jacob Jansen and Johanna Jonker, he leaves the slave September van Manda. A comment describing Jacob as door een ander persoon geprocreeert was crossed out, but at his 1730 baptism Jacob is described as halfslag, indicating his father was white and that he was therefor not the biological son of the prince. To his other son and daughter Jacob Jansen and Johanna Jonker, he bequeaths the slaves Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis. All of the slaves were to remain with his de facto wife until the children attained their majority. Rosetta van Java also inherited the residue of his estate except for Rds 50 given to Jacob to assist in raising the other children to majority.
Names in the record, in publications, etc.Rosetta van Java may be the same person named as Rosetta van Jaffnapatnam on 12 May 1702.7,8
Between 6 February 1707 and 2 February 1733, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Ceijlon.9,10
17 February 1717, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Batavia.11
1724, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Macassar.12
1725, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Macassar.13
Between 9 August 1730 and 11 August 1730, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Java.14,15
24 September 1730, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Java.16,2
2 December 1731, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Java.17
12 October 1734, the name of Rosetta was written in the record as Rosetta van Bougis.18
Baptisms - WitnessRosetta van Java witnessed the baptism of Jacob Cornelisse van de Caep on 8 March 1705 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town).19
Monsterrollen and Opgaafrollen (Muster and tax rolls)April 1720 Jonker van Macassar and Rosetta van Java were enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in the Cape District, along with two sons, presumably Adolph Jonker and Jacob Jansen. This opgaaf while dated April 1720, was identified as that for 1719. Recorded with them were two male slaves, who may have been any of the following November of Origin Unknown, Leander van Malabar, Alexander van Couchin, September van Manda, Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis. All of these individuals appear variously in the record connected to one or both of the principles.20
1721 Jonker van Macassar and Rosetta van Java were enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in the, along with two sons, presumably Adolph Jonker and Jacob Jansen. Recorded with them were two male slaves, who may have been any of the following November of Origin Unknown, Leander van Malabar, Alexander van Couchin, September van Manda, Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis. All of these individuals appear variously in the record connected to one or both of the principles.21
1724 Jonker van Macassar and Rosetta van Java were enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in the Cape District, along with two sons, presumably Adolph Jonker and Jacob Jansen; and three daughters, two of whom were most likely Johanna Jonker and Catharina van de Caep. There was time between the 1721 and 1724 opgaafrollen for the birth of three daughters, one of whom would have died post 1724 (based on subsequent enumerations). Recorded with them were three male slaves, the first would have been Leander van Malabar. The other two may have been any of the following November of Origin Unknown, Alexander van Couchin, September van Manda, Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis.22
1725 Jonker van Macassar and Rosetta van Java were enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in the Cape District, along with two sons, presumably Adolph Jonker and Jacob Jansen; and two daughters, most likely Johanna Jonker and Catharina van de Caep. It is worth noting that a year earlier the couple had been enumerated with 3 daughters, one of whom now seems to have died. Recorded with them were four male slaves, who would have been Alexander van Couchin, September van Manda, Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis. All of these individuals appear variously in the record connected to one or both of the principles.13
1731 Jonker van Macassar and Rosetta van Java were enumerated on the opgaafrol (census/tax roll) in the, along with two sons, presumably Johannis van de Caep and Adriaan van der Caep. Recorded with them were two male slaves, who would have been one of the following individuals Alexander van Couchin, Cassamie of Origin Unknown and Fortuijn van Bougis. All of these individuals appear variously in the record connected to one or both of the principles. Significantly, Willem Duijsert, recorded as Willem Duytsers is living with the family. Is he perhaps their servant kindly taken in and allowed to run his 150 sheep on the family's lands due to a longstanding friendship? Duijsert and Jonker van Macassar, who on that occasion was recorded as Sriyay Moeda, were among those whom, in 1706, signed in support of Willem Adriaan van der Stel.23
Slave TransactionsOn 12 May 1702 Rosetta van Java was sold by Gerrit Koek to Willem Adriaan van der Stel de Caep de Goede Hoop, this is the only record in which a woman at the Cape is named as Rosetta van Jafnapatnam. The date of the transaction is said to be the 9th March in the Defence of WA van der Stel.24,25,26
After 23 April 1707 when her owner Willem Adriaan van der Stel departs the Cape, Rosetta van Java was apparently assigned to the household of Jonker van Macassar. As a baptised slave, she could not be sold. She was to become his concubine. It is assumed she was the same slave sold to Van der Stel in 1702, as there was no other individual at the Cape in this period who qualifies to be this woman.27
On 9 August 1730 September van Manda was sold by Rosetta van Java to Marthinus Heems, for Rds 93.15
Slave EmancipationsSometime before 24 January 1727, and perhaps as early as 1719, Rosetta van Java was emancipated - officially or perhaps unofficially as a consequence of her living with a high-profile member of the Ternaten royal family. This would not be the first instance of an individual slipping gradually into free status due to association. In 1719 she appears in the opgaafrol alongside her defacto spouse, Jonker van Macassar. In his 1724 will, she is first described as zijne Concubine, the words then being deleted and replaced with de vrijswartinne. The royal personage was clearly ambivalent about the mother of his children.28,20
On 11 February 1733 Jonker van Macassar applied to the Council of Policy through the ondercoopman, junior merchant Abraham Decker for the freedom of his children Adolph Jonker, Johanna Jonker and Catharina van de Caep whom he had fathered with his slave Rosetta van Java ( bij desselfs slavin...geteelt ). The children were named as Amel, Talie and Adel in the record, and the first two were already living with Decker, while the third, Adel, was living with Aletta de Beer the widow of Daniel Thibault. The prince also sought in this application to identify his three children as his heirs.29
On 24 April 1733 Adolph Jonker, Johanna Jonker and Catharina van de Caep were emancipated by order of the Council of Policy following the earlier request of their father, Jonker van Macassar. His application was submitted by the ondercoopman Abraham Decker who acted on his behalf. The children's mother Rosetta van Java described in this document as the slavin of the prince, was said to be overledenen, that is deceased.10
On 12 October 1734 Rosetta van Bengale was emancipated by the Company, in terms of a resolution of the Council of Policy. A company slave, she had been entrusted to serve - in eijgendom toegetrouwd hebende - the now-deceased Rosetta van Bougies, that is Rosetta van Java.30,31

She then witnesses the baptism (8 March 1705) of the infant Jacob Cornelisse, son of Maria van de Caab by Seyser [Caesar] van Batavia. To qualify as a witness, she needs to be previously baptized herself. Rosetta van Macassar becomes a member of the Reformed Church at the Cape (1729) being in possession of a certificate of membership from Batavia. If this is indeed our Rosetta, then the legality of the sale (1702) of Rosetta van Jaffnapatnam is in question as baptized slaves are forbidden by the Statutes of Batavia to be sold – unless Rosetta has gone to Batavia (post 1702) returning baptized thereafter to the Cape."
