Magdalena van de Caep1
F, #13840, b. before 23 September 1696
|Slave Birth - Company Owned||Magdalena van de Caep was born in bondage before 23 September 1696 and was owned by the VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie), de Caep de Goede Hoop Magdalena van de Caep.2|
|Duplicate?*||It is possible that Magdalena van de Caep and Johanna Kemp are the same individual. Johanna Kemp's stated age at death indicates a birth date in August 1696 - and the baptism for Magdalena fits the profile for Johanna. In addition, the mother in the baptism immediately succeeding that of Magdalena is also named Magdalena, creating the environment for a potential scribal error.2 |
|Slaves Owned by the Company||On 23 September 1696 Cicilia Swerisse and Magdalena van de Caep were enslaved and owned by the VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) at the Cape.1|
