Louwijs van de Caep1

M, #9253, b. before 8 April 1663
Father-Candidate*Corporael Gabriel Joosten b. c 1640; this candidate relationship is offered based on fact that Louwijs sister, Adriaantje, baptised in 1667 came to be known as Adriaantje Gabrielsz - suggesting her father was named Gabriel.1
Mother-Candidate*Catharina van Malabar b. c 1637; candidate relationship, perhaps further evidence of this relationship will surface as I add records.2
