Duplicate?*It is possible that Jan NN and Johannes van de Caep are the same individual. However, if this were the case, Jan would have been just 13 years old when he father his first child and I am not aware of any studies that speak to the age at which boys in the period reached puberty. 
BaptismsJohannes van de Caep was baptized on 23 May 1667 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop. The baptism was witnessed by Lidia de Pape.2
Slave BirthsBefore 23 May 1667, Johannes van de Caep was born in bondage and was owned by Hendrik Lacus de Caep de Goede Hoop.2
Slave TransactionsIn September 1667 Johannes van de Caep, and presumably her putative son Johannes van de Caep, became forfeit to the Company when Hendrik Lacus was found guilty of theft and embezzlement.3
