|Slave Birth - Company Owned||Derkje van de Caep was born in bondage before 6 September 1665 and was owned by the VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) Derkje van de Caep.1|
|Baptism||Derkje van de Caep was baptized on 6 September 1665 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, (Cape Town), de Caep de Goede Hoop.1|
|Notes||Derkje van de Caep and Maria Schalck Someone asked me on a public forum in April 2016 on what I based the fact that Maria and Derkje were not twins, even though I have not said they were not (or were). I have no view at present on this.|
The facts are:
—as far as I am at present aware, Derkje never again appears in the record. It is therefor unlikely whether or not they were a twin will ever be established with certainty
—in that period it was not uncommon that a comment was made in baptism record when two siblings baptised together were a twin
—that as of the present, I have not confirmed beyound a doubt that Maria Schalck is the daughter of Koddo van Guinea, or that this 1665 baptism is hers
—this is why I state unequivocally on the website with respect to these events
——with respect to the mother-daughter relationship: "candidate relationship, offered with a view toward further discovery in the record"
——with respect to the baptism of the child Maria: "Maria Schalck may be the individual who was baptized on 06 Sep 1665"
Visitors to the site would be well advised to read everything on a page and not simply cherrypick bits of information here and there.
