About Jochem Anthony Portugese

Baptism record: 1643 Jul 05; Anthony Portuges Neger; Jochem; Emanuel

Literate son of freed slaves:

http://www.common-place.org/vol-03/no-04/new-york/ "Well aware of the unpredictability that shadowed the lives of non-Europeans in the Dutch city, free Africans attempted to safeguard their children through labor contracts, such as the one made by Maria Portugies for her daughter to be a household servant, and apprenticeships. Susanna Anthony Roberts, a free African acting as guardian of her minor brother, negotiated an apprenticeship agreement for him that mandated that he be taught reading and writing. Unable to write herself, she yearned to equip her brother with the tools of literacy."
