  • Magdalena van de Caep b. b 13 Jun 1706; I am offering this candidate parent-child relationships based on the following: the candidate parents were both slaves owned at their baptisms in 1692 by Simon van der Stel, the father of Willem A. van der Stel. Octavius van Macassar witnesses the 1692 baptism of Secilia/Cicilia vd Caep and then also witnesses the baptism of Magdalena in 1706 - suggesting a long term relationship with these individuals2
Slave BirthsBefore 20 April 1692, Secilia van de Caep was born in bondage and was owned by Simon van der Stel de Caep de Goede Hoop.1
