About Dominicus Angola

baptism record

1646 Jun 25; Paulus Van Angola-Neger; Dominicus; Emanuel Grande Esperance, Jan de Vries

perhaps Emanuel Grande Esperance is the Emauel who is referred to as Emanuel brother-in-law of Van Angola

Capt. Jan de Vries' son Jan (II) was left in the care of his white friends, his (mulatto or creole) wife Lare, and his other slaves Paulus {the father of Dominicus} and his wife Dorothy when he sailed to his death.
The following passage seems to refer to the same Dominicus It should be remembered that Dominicus' parents were freed slaves with land (see Paulus' profile)


1664 09 Feb; Swan van Loange; Christina Emanuels, Negros

"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. On September 16,1664, eight months after the marriage of Christina and Swan, it was recorded that Govert Loockermans , a wealthy merchant of New Amsterdam, had given a note for 300 guilders to obtain Christina’s freedom. Why Loockermans acted in Christina’s behalf becomes clear when we learn that he was the owner of a slave named Swan in 1662. Undoubtedly, Swan, Govert Loockerman’s slave, was the Swan van Loange who married Christina Emanuels in 1664. Looekermans had facilitated Christina’s manumission so that Swan van Loange, his slave, could marry her.” from:

baptism of Christina

1645 Feb 18; Emanuel Trompetter; Christina; Claes Van Elslandt, Bastayen, Captyn van de Negers, Geertruyd Roelofs, Mayken Van Angola
does the 'Trompetter' simply mean that he held the trumpet?
