Christiaan van de Caep1

M, #18362, b. before 31 January 1706
Father*Gerrit van Malabar1 b. c 1666
Mother*Eva van Madagascar b. c 1688; I have assumed this to be the correct mother / son relationship because the child is baptised among the Christian, ie free children, and that the assumed mother was herself baptised in 1703 - perhaps in anticipation of manumission. I have not found anyone else who fits the profile to be this child's mother. This relationship is offered with a view toward further discovery in the record.1
