About Christina Emanuels

"A more ambiguous, but nevertheless intriguing case revolved around Christina Emanuels and Swan van Loange, who were married in the Dutch Reformed church of New Amsterdam on February 9, 1664. Christina, who had been a slave of the Dutch West India Company, was the subject of a petition from Domingo Angola, a free black , praying for her manumission. This petition, dated December 6, 1663, noted that she was a baptized orphan daughter of Manuel Trumpeter and Anthonya, his wife, both deceased negroes. The Dutch authorities ordered the girl, who was 18 years old at this time, to be emancipated on condition that the Company be furnished with another Negro in her place or be paid the sum of 300 guilders.

does the 'Trompetter' simply mean that he held the trumpet?
