Maria van Macassar1
F, #16700, b. circa 1680
|BirthOrigin*||Maria was from Macassar and was perhaps born there circa 1680. Her age is estimated.1|
|Baptism||Maria van Macassar was baptized on 20 June 1706 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town). I have assumed this to be the correct baptism for Maria van Macassar - she subsequently appears as a baptism witness to a slave child, also owned by WA vd Stel, and must therefor have been baptised herself.2|
|Baptisms - Witness||Maria van Macassar witnessed the baptism of Catharina van de Caep on 6 February 1707 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.3|
|Slave Transactions||On 12 March 1699 Maria van Macassar was sold on behalf of Maria Paviliaens by Johannes Kiesinge to Willem Adriaan van der Stel, for Rds. 80.4|
