|Notes||On 31 October 1672 some delegates sent by Gonnoma of the Cochoquas who were also relatives of Kkarré of the Cochoquas, Dhaurrij of the Cochoquas, Ttentshe of the Cochoquas, Chamtagou of the Cochoquas and Achtonij of the Cochoquas, the five Cochoqua banished to Robben Island, came to the Fort to offer the governor Isbrand Gosken, ten choice cattle as a ransom in exchange for their relatives. The governor refused to meet with them nor were they successful in securing the freedom of their kin.6|
On 6 January 1673 the governor Isbrand Gosken despatched two horsemen to search the shoreline, as far as the beach opposite Robben Island, for the five fugitive Khoe, namely Kkarré of the Cochoquas, Dhaurrij of the Cochoquas, Ttentshe of the Cochoquas, Chamtagou of the Cochoquas and Achtonij of the Cochoquas. Although the journal and resolutions are silent on the outcome of the search, a notation was added to the original sentence that the boat had been found and the fugitives were deemed to have landed safely. They thereafter disappear from the record. It is not inconceivable however, that they were able to make their way to their people and thereafter successfully hidden from the settlers.7
|Slave Transactions||In 1675 Louis van Nagapatnam was sold by Isbrand Gosken to Theunis Dircksen van Schalckwyck, a condition of the sale was that Louis would be freed after eight years.8|
Anthoni, Carel and Alexander were sold by d'E Hr Gijsbrant Goske, to Cornelis Stevens Botma on 11 November 1675, for Rds 270. It is possible that additional identifying information will surface as I add records. It may be that Goske acquired the three individuals from his predecessor(s.)9,10
|Slave Emancipations||In 1671 de Caep de Goede Hoop Louis van Bengale purchased his own freedom after Hendrik Lacus his owner, was found guilty of fraud. The right to do so was granted by visiting Commissioner d'E Hr Gijsbrant Goske however he did not have enough money and it took him a year to persuade the authorities to accept as sufficient the sum of 50 reals, which was all he had.11|
