About Constantia van der Stel

Simon’s son, Henrik van der Stel (1670‑1722), who also spent a number of years in the Cape Colony (between 1679 and 1686), married Constantia Abrahamsz, a Polish lady from Gdańsk (Danzig). The newlyweds spent a year (between 1703 and 1704) at the Cape, en route for the Dutch Indies, where Henrik was to take up managing a Company agency in Macassar. Their only daughter, Catherina Constantia van der Stel married Henrik Holstyn, also associated with the East India Company. After the death of her first husband, Constantia Abrahamsz married Charles Dierkoop, the Captain of a vessel in Company service. She died a widow in Batavia (today’s Jakarta) in 1757.
