  4. [S680] André van Rensburg, "Familia: The secret modus operandi used to obtain slaves from Guinea for the Cape: the ship Hasselt - 1658," June 2001, The forced slave settlers on board the Hasselt were obtained from Popo, Benin (formerly Dahomey), and disembarked at the Cape on 7 May 1658. The VOC decided that 148 of the 228 slaves from the Hasselt were to be permanent settlers at the Cape, this being the largest number of new settlers yet to arrive. ... We know that Evert van Guinea and Anna van Guinea had a daughter Maria Everts, and that she and Bastiaan Colyn were the progenitors of the COLYN family. Were there continual descendants of Abraham van Guinea and Catharina van Guinea? Their child Sijbilla was manumitted in 1671 aged five and a half. There was also Claas and his wife van Guinea. Researchers need to identify who the descendants are of Louis Cattij, Anthony, Mary, Deucsous, Dirck, Dirckie, Gegeima, Oude Hans, Jajenne, Houw, and Serry. These were some of the settlers who came on the ship Hasselt.. Hereinafter cited as "The Hasselt."

  6. [S750] Note concerning Various, written by Mansell Upham, "Lijsbeth Jansz: van de Caep Maria Schalks & JB were baptised together but JB's name is incorrectly given as Dirkie ...
    ...
    MS & JB baptised together
    the very next bap after theirs is also for a Dirik ... think minister wrote the name Dirk twice ... probably surrounded by too many slave mothers all jabbering at teh same time ...
    in any case that entire 2st joint slave bap entry for 1665 is full of errors ... which is the reason we have all been so off track for so long ..."
  7. [S750] Note by Mansell Upham "i am working on koddo's candidate kids. i have johanna kemp as one of them - should i remove? and apart fm the other 3 sisters - jb, ms, & lj - any others?
    yes Isabella van de Caep
    she baptised as adult in 1691?
    ... Isabella I do think to be Koddo's daughter ..."
