"was van Chinese afkoms. Sy Chinese naam was Juko/Tuko. Hy was gedoop as 'n Christen 19 Februarie 1702. Hy trou 16 April 1702 met Maria Jacobsz VAN BATAVIA.

Abraham de Vyf het goedere verkoop onder andere, koppies en pierings van die Ooste. Hy het ook 'n ooreenkoms met Simon van der Stel gehad om vis te verkoop. Hy was een van die persone wat 'n petisie ten gunste van van der Stel geteken het.

In 1708 het van der Stel om beskuldig dat hy ontug gepleeg het met een van sy slavinne. Dinge het ook begin verkeerd loop met sy besigheid. In 1710 begin hy planne te maak om terug te keer na die Ooste, maar is oorlede in 1712 voordat hy kon vertrek.

Abraham en Maria kon dalk die ouers gewees het van Leonora de Vyf, sy was in 1712 getroud met Andries Backstroo (Bastro) en hertrou weer in 1714 met Nicolaas Jansz Mulder. Heese maak melding dat Maria en die dogter gedoop was die 18 Desember 1701.

  • [Christina was baptised alone on 18 Dec 1701 - see document attached - JS]

Die volgende was die aanhef tot Abraham DE VIJF se inventaris soos omskryf in MOOC 10/1 verw. 78 en gedateer 20 April 1713.

Abraham de Vyf (Vey came from China. His Chinese name was Juko/Tuko. A.K.A 'Tuko de Chinees'. He was baptised on 19 Feb 1702 and accepted into the Reformed Church - unprecedented at the Cape at the time.

He married Maria Jacobsz van Batavia on 16 April 1702.

She was the widow of Willem Cornelissen. There was one child from that marriage - Maria Cornelissen [This allegation does not appear on http://www.stamouers.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=134:de-vyf-abraham-&catid=2:d-g&Itemid=9 or in the Afrikaans version above. Where does it come from? Maria Jacobs is a jonge dogter at the time of her marriage to Abraham - see document attached - JS]

Abraham traded goods from the East, and had an agreement with Simon van der Stel to sell fish, and was one of the people who signed a petition in favour of van der Stel. In 1708 van der Stel accused him of having a relationship with one of his slaves. In 1710 he started planning to return to the east but died in 1712 before he could do so.

Abraham and Mary may have been the parents of Leonora de Vyf who married Andries Backstroo (Backstro) in 1712. She married Nicholas Jansz Mulder in 1714. Heese mentions that Maria and the daughter were baptised on 18 Dec. 1701.

The following was the introduction as written in MOOC 10/1 verw. 78 dated 20 April 1713. "Vendu Rol der goederen naergelaten en met er dood ontruijmt by den Vry Chinees Abraham de Veij (sic), ten voordeele van desselfs naergelate Wed. Maria Jacobs ter eenre, en dessels drie minderjarige kinderen genaemt Daniel de Vijf (sic), Christina en Beatrix de Vijf ter andere Zijde."

Roughly translated -With the death of Vendu Rol, the goods were removed from the Chinese (set free), Abraham de Veij (sic) to the benefit of omitted widow Maria Jacobs and three minor children Daniel de Vijf (sic) Christina and Beatrix de Vijf.

His goods, including a slave, were sold to Peter Roelof. Maria Jacobs and her three Children were supported until 1717 by the Church.
