|BirthOrigin*||Hannibal was from Macassar and was perhaps born there in 1663/64. He was said to be 28 or 29 years old in 1692.1|
|Marriage*||He married Sara van Macassar on 24 May 1705 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.2|
|(FatherCandidate) Birth||Pieternella van de Caep was born before 16 October 1701 in de Caep de Goede Hoop, I have assumed this to be the correct mother-daughter relationship, due to the fact that the baptism was recorded amongst those of the free population, and that Sara van Macassar married a few years later in the same church. Slaves were not permitted to marry formally. Corrections are welcome. In my view the father could have been one of three individuals, namely: Abraham van Macassar, Abram van Macassar and Hannibal van Macassar. I have yet to identify manumissions for either Abraham nor Abram, prior to the baptism of this child. Hannibal on the other hand was manumitted in 1692 and married Sara in 1705.3|
|Slave Emancipations||On 22 November 1692 Hannibal van Macassar was emancipated by Gerrit Victor, following 13 years of faithful service but on condition he work for Victor for a further 3 years. I have assumed this to be the same individual who married Sara van Macassar in 1705.4|
