Abrahamse=Abrahamzoon contracted to Abrahamsz at the time,referring to father or possibly grandfather Abraham,who could have been a VOC slave,but some European Dutch names came about this way in those days also. The form Abrahams is quite common in Cape Town today among both Christians and Muslims,along with Abrahamse,most likely being 2 or more different families.
