Slave TransactionsSimon van Angola was sold by Wouter Mostert, to Jochem Marquaert and Coenraad Urbanus on 1 April 1666. However if Simon died within 6 months, Mostaert was to give the purchasers "Hans". This was presumably the slave purchased by Mostaert from Thomas Christoffel Muller in 1662, i.e. Oude Hans van Guinea. If on the other hand, Hans was to die within the same period, then the purchasers would have no further claim against the seller. In separately recorded transactions on the same date, Mostert sold to the same purchasers two erven in Table Valley. The purchase price for the series of transactions, which also included 50 sheep, was f 1000 for which the purchasers signed a lien.10,11,12
On 12 December 1670 Simon van Angola and Gerrit van Bengale were sold by Coenraad Urbanus to Jochem Marquart and Henrick Barentze van der Zee, in a complex transaction of f 5000, payable in two instalments, which included his house, outbuildings, erf on the corner of Olifantstraat, household goods, kisten en kasten fixed to the house, as well as 143 halfbreed ooihamels en ramskape. The slaves are described as 'een Angoolse Caffer’ Sijmon en die ander ‘een Indiaan’ genaamt Gerrit.13
