Chancumqua of the Chobona1
M, #19092, b. circa 1635
|Birth*||Chancumqua of the Chobona was born circa 1635 in de Caep de Goede Hoop, the date is estimated. In 1657 he was described by the Commander as one of the principal chiefs of the Chobona and as rich and powerful with a large following. His followers may have been formally grouped as a people, the Chancumqua, but this is not clear from what I found in the record thus far (May 2019.)1|
