Slave EmancipationsOn 7 June 1687 Izak van Ternate acquired his freedom from Henningh Hùijsing iin exchange for another four years, eight months faithful service.61
On 17 July 1692 the emancipation of Izak van Ternate by Henningh Hùijsing comes into effect, five months after the due date. Like others similarly freed before him, he was permitted to reside and farm in Stellebosch as a vrijman or freeman.62
Henningh Hùijsing approved the emancipation of a slave, Susanna van Mombasa from the deceased estate of Anthoniij van Angola on 22 October 1696 de Caep de Goede Hoop, In the emancipation record, Anthonij is described as Susanna's husband. They could not have been legally married because Susanna was a slave, but the relationship appears to have clearly been a defacto marriage. Although Anthonij was already deceased at the time, he had prior to his death promised Susanna she and her children would be freed and this was carried out by the authorities because of the testimony of Grimp and Van der Bijl.63,64,65

  65. [S521] Margaret Cairns, "Gerrit Gerrits of Oldenburg and Susanna of Bambaser: An early 18th century couple", Familia (Gerrits & Bambaser) 17, nr. 3/4 (1990): However it seems obvious that she had been at the Cape for a few years before 1696 for this document is in fact her emancipation from slavery, and it provides details of her life that would otherwise have remained hidden. It is a fascinating document and far more than the stereotyped freedom papers usually to be found, for Hugo de Goyer, the secretary or the Council of Policy which normally handles such matters, added that six weeks before his death, her late master Anthony of Angola had told her "synde geweest de lyfeigen van Anthony van Angola", that he intended to free her from slavery. This freedom was to include that of her child, fathered by another man, and her unborn child by Anthony himself. Unfortunately Anthony died before he could carry out his promise and his posthumous son was therefore born a slave. However, the matter of the proposed emancipation had apparently been common knowledge and two well-known burgers of Stellenbosch where Anthony lived, Hans Jurgen Grimpe and Pieter van der Bijl came to the aid of Susanna and the deposition that they made to this effect bore sufficient weight for the authorities to grant the requested freedom forthwith.. Hereinafter cited as "Gerrits & Bambaser."
