Lijsbeth van de Caep1
F, #18797, b. circa 1680
|Birth*||Lijsbeth van de Caep was born circa 1680 in de Caep de Goede Hoop, the date is estimated.1|
|Notes||Between 1675 and 1714 the Company owned several Cape born women named Elisabeth / Lisjbeth and variants thereof. Apart from some individuals, it is very difficult to work out who their mothers or who their children were. The things I consider include:|
---the age they were considered adult, which seems to have been when they reached puberty although in some instances seems to include prepubuscent children
---age gaps between children. The gaps between the birth of children seem predominantly to be between 12 to 36 months, but occasionally less or more
---naming patterns and the way some individuals are identified in the lodge census records in which both mothers and grandmothers are identified
These women may include Lysbeth van de Caep, Lysbeth van de Caep, Lysbeth van de Caep and Lijsbeth van de Caep.
|Slaves Owned by the Company||On 2 May 1700 Lijsbeth van de Caep and Leonora van de Caep van Lijsbeth were enslaved and owned by the VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) at the Cape.1|
