Searching archives without a province or place of baptism is hopeless. Assuming the date of baptism is correct I think it is very unlikely she was born in Nederland, as her father Helmer(t) Pa(a)l became a "vryburger" in 1692.

From "Resolutions of the Council of Policy of Cape of Good Hope
Cape Town Archives Repository, South Africa
", searching her father:

[8] Volgens sy handtekening helmer pal, wat van Quakenbruck afkomstig was. Hy het as silwersmid uitgekom en in 1692 vryburger geword. Is geskei van sy vrou Jacoba van Norden, wat in 1703 na Mauritius gestuur is. Sien C.J.2750: Procuratiën, 1686-1694, pp. 204-205.

[10] helmer pal, soos hy self sy naam geteken het, was afkomstig van Quakenbruck en het hom in 1692 as silwersmid in Drakenstein gevestig. Hy en sy vrou, Jacoba van Norden, is geskei en sy is in 1703 na Mauritius gestuur.
