About Cecilia van Angola, SM/PROG

http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/g6/p6560.htm


She is known to be the mother of Johannes and Agenietie van de Caep (by Jan Herfst or Herbst). It is speculated that she MIGHT be the mother of Jannetje Bastijans (also spelled Bastians or Bastiaens) since Jannetjie named her own daughter Cecilia (van de Caep).

She was likely taken by slave traders from Angola as a child in 1657. Interesting details of her likely journey from Angola to South Africa available on "The first fifty years project" website http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/ (Robertson, Delia). Alternatively she could have come from slave trade in Guinea or Madagascar.
