BaptismAagtie Paal was baptized on 10 May 1699 Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town).2 
Crime and relatedOn 31 July 1703 Jacoba van Norden was banished from de Caep de Goede Hoop to Mauritius for bad conduct and immoral life - this must have included the fact she had a child out-of-wedlock with Hendrik Kuijs in 1701. The record did not name her daughter, who because of her young age I have assumed to be Aagtie Paal.3,4
