David van Bougis1
M, #16014, b. 1667/68
|BirthOrigin*||David would most likely, as Buginese, been from South Sulawesi and was perhaps born there in 1667/68. He was said to be 26 or 27 in 1694.1|
|Marriage De facto*||Before 26 October 1704 David van Bougis and Cornelia vande Caab were in a de facto relationship. This relationship is assumed - they appear to be free individuals when they baptise a child among the children of free persons in 1704.2|
|Cornelia vande Caab b. c 1686|
|Names in the record, in publications, etc.||26 October 1704, the name of David was written in the record as David van Macassar, I have assumed this to be the same individual named as David van Bougies in a slave transaction of 1694 - offered with a view toward further discovery in the record. I have found no other individual in the record who fits the profile.2|
|Slave Transactions||On 23 March 1694 David van Bougis was sold by Jacobus Oudenhoorn to Willem ten Damme, for Rds. 75.1|
