Johanna van de Caep1
F, #14975, b. before 14 February 1717, d. before 1719
|Birth*||Johanna van de Caep was born before 14 February 1717 in de Caep de Goede Hoop, the child is described as een Slaaven-kind, which was the fate of all children born to slave mothers. Nevertheless she is emancipated — vrij gegeeven — by the time she is baptised, clearly indicating her special status and absent any other information this must be that her father is none other than her owner as described in the baptism, viz. Katsili Daijan Mamoedij, Prins van Ternate.1|
|Baptism||Johanna van de Caep was baptized on 14 February 1717 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town).1 |
|Death*||She most likely died before 1719; less probable is that she was alienated from her mother by the Van der Stels. She does not appear in the 1719 opgaaf with her mother who later baptises a second daughter with the same name.2 |
