Will*Andreas Peters left a will on 7 April 1708 de Caep de Goede Hoop. While he recorded that he was sonder wettige bloedverwante nog erfgenam - in other words without legal blood relatives or heirs. The operative words here are sonder wettige - his presumed children, all named as his heirs in the will, could not legally inherit from their father because at the time of will, they were all still enslaved. He seems therefor to have decided to name them in defiance of the law, or in anticipation of their emancipation. Both Agnietie and Jan subsequently married, so they must have been emancipated. Not all emancipations were recorded as required.6,7

Pieterse(n) had at least three other children by slave mothers, and the chances he fathered this child, are quite high - especially given the child's middle-class name.
