Step-father*Cornelis Claasz3 b. c 1630, d. c 1688
Mother*Catharina van Malabar1,2 b. c 1637
Father-CandidateCorporael Gabriel Joosten b. c 1640; this candidate relationship is offered based on fact that a witness at the baptism of Adriaantje's brother, Louwijs in 1663, was Gabriel Joosten and that this child came to be known as Adriaantje Gabrielsz - suggesting her father was named Gabriel.4

NotesIMPORTANT NOTE:

Direct matrilineal descendants of these two women have tested for different mtDNA haplogroups. The suggestion now is that Adriaantje Gabrielsz was *not* the daughter of Catharina van Malabar.


There is a clear contemporaneous record trail evidencing this relationship.

1. Catharine van Malabar was a slave belonging to Cornelis van Qualbergen.
2. She baptises Adriaantje thusly: dito (13 November 1667) een slaevinne kint van den E.H.Comman: Quaelbergen, wiert genaemt Adriaentje de moeder Catharyn tot getuyge stont in persoon van de Juffr Quaelbergen haer slaevinne
3. When Adriaantje is married she is described as the step-daughter of Catharina van Malabar's husband Cornelis Claasz in this way: ao' 1683, eodem dito [den 4. Julij], Pieter Gerrits zoo, Jonghman, vryburgh en Aedriantie stiefdogter van Kees de boer.
Slave BirthsBefore 13 November 1667, Adriaantje Gabrielsz was born in bondage and was owned by Commandeur Cornelis van Quaelbergen de Caep de Goede Hoop.18
