(Owner) BaptismSlave On 26 April 1699 Hendrik Constant van Macasser was baptized Nederduitsche Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), at the time he was the slave of Simon van der Stel. I have assumed this to be his baptism, because he later marries in the church.5

NotesBetween 20 April 1692 and 23 July 1713 after the disappearance of the Ridderschap, apparently due to pirate activity around Madagascar the Council of Policy despatched officials on board the recently repaired Tamboer to the island to investigate the matter. To assist the officials they also sent the company owned Malagasy slave interpreter Inserwole van Madagascar otherwise known as Ysserwolle and Cornelis - the latter being his baptismal name. From Madagascar the Tamboer proceeded to Batavia from where Inserwole was returned to the Cape.

The first Cornelis van Madagascar appears in the record on 8 March 1677 (1676?) when he is sold by Arijaen van Asperen the captain of the Voorhout to Joannes Valckenryck for Rds 87 in a joint transaction.

As far as can be thus far asertained, there were two adult, company owned, Malagasy slaves baptised Cornelis at the Cape on 20 April 1692 and 20 November 1695 - the Malagasy names were not recorded in either instance. They were Cornelis van Madagascar and Cornelis van Madagascar

The census (monsterrol) of 1695 does not include any company owned slaves named Cornelis.

The last record thus far located mentioning a Cornelis van Madagascar is on 23 July 1713 of two slaves Dianira van der Caap and Cornelis van Madegascar owned by Simon van der Stel who baptise their son Johannes Cornelis van der Caep.32,33

Before 23 September 1696, Clara van de Caap was born in bondage and was owned by Simon van der Stel, I have assumed her to be the mother of the child Johanna Petronella, baptised in 1716. Corrections welcome.52,53
Before 28 October 1696, Ambrosius van de Caep was born in bondage and was owned by Simon vander Stel de Caep de Goede Hoop.54

Before 30 June 1709, Helena Barbara Constant was born in bondage and was owned by Simon vander Stel de Caep de Goede Hoop, the baptism of this child as a slave of Simon van der Stel is curious. The parents were married 13 months previously and slaves were not permitted to marry, so they must have been emancipated prior to their marriage and the child therefor born in freedom.61
Before 9 November 1710, Adam van de Caep was born in bondage and was owned by Simon van der Stel.62
Before 3 March 1711, Gabriel van de Caep was born in bondage and was owned by Simon vander Stel de Caep de Goede Hoop.52
Slave TransactionsAfter 12 October 1679 Adam van de Caep was sold by Henrik Crudop to Simon van der Stel, this transaction is assumed. It was common that the commander, and later governor, sold his slaves to his successor and that these transactions were not recorded. Adam fits the profile of the slave owned by Simon van der Stel, who fathered a child 20 years later.

On 23 March 1680 Pagalet was sold by Pieter Wiltvanck to Simon van der Stel.64
On 15 June 1680 Paris van Bengale was sold by Heltjen Redogs to Simon van der Stel, for Rds. 55 1/2. I assume this to be the same slave purchased by her (now deceased) husband in 1674.65

On 18 March 1683 Susanna van Malabar was sold by Jan Baptist to Simon van der Stel de Caep de Goede Hoop.67

However, on 9 May 1686, in a second recorded transaction the slave is purchased by Christiaen Magnus, for the same amount. A line was drawn through the date on the original record and replaced with the latter date. Magnus stipulated that he was purchasing the slave for the same amount because the original purchaser, Heems, acquired the slave illegally (malefido et dolo?) and he had been ordered returned to Deeron by the Commander, Simon van der Stel.76,77
On 5 June 1686 the Nostra Signora de los Milagros was wrecked off Cape Agulhas Bartholomé van Mozambique, Lorenço el Grande van Mozambique, Alexander van Mozambique, Thomas van Mozambique, Christoval van Mozambique, Antonio van Mozambique, Pedro van Mozambique, Lorenco Pequeno van Mozambique, Francisco van Mozambique and Joan van Mozambique all absconded. The senior merchant Jan de Paiva agreed that Simon van der Stel pay Rds. 25 for three, or fewer. This entitled him to sell them if he managed to capture them. Lorezo Mayor (Lorenço el Grande) was indeed subsequently captured and sold for Rds. 70, handing Van der Stel a profit of Rds. 45.78
On 15 August 1686 Lorenço el Grande van Mozambique was sold by Simon van der Stel to Theunis Dircksen Schalckwyck, for Rds. 70.79

Between 1 August 1688 and 21 May 1702 Claas Jonasz van de Caep a slave owned by the Company, came into the possession of Simon van der Stel.

About noon two shots were fired from Lion's Head, and at sunset the vessels “Stad Ceulen” and “Drie Kroonen” arrived in a fair state of health and condition, on board of which were the Hon. Councillor Extraordinary and Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel and family, who succeeds his father, Simon van der Stel. They had left Texel on the 22nd September last with the “Eycklenburg”, “Spiegel,” “Overryp,” “ Berkenrode,” and “Verhuyzen,” expected here every minute. For the sake of refreshing themselves somewhat, the Governor had touched at St. Jago on the 10th November, and remained there until the 16th. Although the south-east wind commenced to blow very heavily in the evening the Governor and family were conducted from the ship by the chief merchant Sieur Samuel Elsevier and the Hon. Fiscal Joan Blesius, and landed at the Sandhills, where he was most civilly received by his father and the other members of the council.

The military and burghers, both foot and horse, had come under arms for the same purpose, and stood in double line, viz., the military within the Castle and the burghers outside the gate; three volleys were fired with cannon shots in between. The members of the Council who were present and some of the burgher officers were treated to a glass of wine at Government House, where they once more solemnly welcomed His Honour.

A note attached to this deed states that by order of the Commander the slave Thomas, who had been acquired by Magnus malefide et dolo, was given back to Will Deeron.
  77. [S606] J.L. (Leon) Hattingh, "Foute en regstellings", Op bladsy 146 van die addendum kom nog een van daardie onverklaarbare lees en verstaan foute voor. By die datum van 9.5.1686 verskyn by Böeseken:
    "Thomas from Madagascar( 8/9), sold by Will Deeron to Christiaen Magnus for Rds. 33. A note attached to this deed states that by order of the Commander the slave Thomas, who had been acquired by Magnus malefide et dolo, was given back to Will Deeron".
    My lesing van die betrokke document is dat Deeron in die eerste plek en wel op 26.4.1686 die betrokke slaaf aan Guilliam Heems vir 33 Rds. Verkoop het. In 'n tweede akte (wat iets anders as 'n toegevoegde nota is), gedateer 9.5.1686 - die vorige document se datum is toe blykbaar deurgehaal en ook na 9.5.1686 verander - meld Christiaan Magnus dat hy nou die slaaf teen dieselfde bedrag koop omdat die vorige koper, dit wil se Heems, die slaaf wederregtelik bekom het en dit op bevel van die kommandeur moes terug gee.
  78. [S418] Anna J. Böeseken, Slaves and Free Blacks at the Cape 1658-1700, p.55. Then when the Portuguese ship Nostra Signora de los Milagros was wrecked in April 1686 off Cape Agulhas and 10 of the slaves who had been on board fled into the interior, van der Stel came to an agreement with the merchant Jan de Paiva to pay Rds. 25 for the right to catch and sell three of these slaves. Should he not succeed in catching any of them he would gain nothing in return for his Rds. 25. A few months later he did catch Lorezo Mayor, whom he sold for Rds. 70, thus making a profit of Rds. 45 on the transaction.
    p.146. 5.6.1686: Bartholomé, Lorenç0 el Grande, Alexander, Thomas, Christoval, Antonio, Pedro, Lorenço Pequeno, Francisco and Joan, ten slaves belonging to senior merchant Jan de Paiva of the wrecked ship Nostra Signora de los Milagros, were still at large. They were all from Mozambique. Governor Simon van der Stel paid de Paiva Rds. 25 for the right to sell three of them if he
    recaptured them. If he caught fewer than three, he would still pay Rds. 25.

  141. [S606] J.L. (Leon) Hattingh, "Foute en regstellings", Soms wil dit werklik voorkom asof die twee transkribeerders nie die Hollands van die oorspronklike dokumente kon verstaan nie; soos dit blyk in die geval vermeld op bladsy 185 van die addendum gedateer 28.7.1698. Daarin word beweer dat die slavin Susanna Catharina van Ceylon deur Simon van der Stel vrygestel is, “who also gave her a ‘liberale gifte’. (The amount is not stated in the document)”, deel Böeseken ons mee. In die teks van die boek (p. 57) lees ‘n mens ook van die geval: “With her freedom she received a ‘liberale gifte’. How much that was we are not told, but it must have enabled her to find her feet as a Free Black at the Cape”, skryf Böeseken. Behalwe dat die optekening van die akte dus net so gebruik is, is dit klaarblyklik so aangewend dat dit ‘n besonder positiewe beeld van goewerneur Simon van der Stel moes gee. Die feit dat die aantekening vaag is, doen nie afbreuk aan haar verbeelding om dit tot die uiterstete te rek nie.

    In werklikheid staan in die betrokke document dat Simon van der Stel die slavin vrygestel het vanweë haar kennis van die Hollandse taal en haar lang diens! Dit vermeld Böeseken nie. En die “liberale gifte” wat Böeseken klaarblyklik vermoed geldelike hulp moes gewees het, is net maar die gewone vaste uitdrukking wat feitlik altyd in die aktes voorgekom het wanner ‘n slaaf vrygestel is. Die betekenis daarvan was eenvoudig dat hy haar Vryheid aan haar geskenk het as ‘n “liberale gifte”. Hier was dus hoegenaamd geen sprake van welke aard ookal van ‘n bykomende geskenk nie. Simon van der Stel het dus in die geval niks uitsonderliks verrig nie. Inteendeel, dit is verbasend dat nadat die betrokke amptelike stelling al verskeie kere in voorafgaande vrystellingsbriewe gebruik is, dit nou skielik vir die eerste keer eers raakgesien is.
