The bio has been been integrated as best possible for the time being. Primary records will probably still be around in archives in Europe and even the far-east (Batavia).

Events

Amsoeboe, his wife Inabe van Timor and daughters Iba and Baauw [4][5] ‐ a politically exiled, but un‐enslaved, family from Timor ‐ is sent (1676) by the "Dutch East India Company" (VOC) from Batavia [Jakarta on the Indonesian island of Java] on the hooker Goudvink to Mauritius – a VOC outpost (buitenpost) governed from the Cape of Good Hope which latter colony is itself governed from Batavia [Jakarta] (their unnamed son, however, remains at Batavia). The commander on Mauritius at the time is the outgoing reformed privateer Hubert Hugo. [6][7] There, the family is accused of conspiring (1677) with Company slaves and exiled convicts to overthrow the colony, massacre its officials, and escape. Amsoeboe and his family are all separately interrogated in a pre‐trial investigation by Commander Isaac Johannes Lamotius (1646‐1718) and his council... Also implicated is a Company soldier Hans Beer, concubine to Iba. Two conspirators hang themselves. Behr dies mysteriously during interrogation. Claiming no authority to legally try Amsoeboe and his family, Lamotious sends them to the Cape of Good Hope (1679). The family settle amongst the colony’s free‐population. Their household (1681) ‐ one of the small colony’s two operational brothels – is censured by Commander Simon van der Stel and his council authorizing the fiscal to arrest any offenders he finds there. The census (1682) enumerates 7 unnamed members for this family ‐ including presumably 3 illegitimate daughters for Iba. Amsoeboe is now recorded as Paay [‘Father’] Timorees or Moor ‐ and his wife as Ansela van Timor. After the death of Inabe the Orphan Chamber inventorizes (1682) the impoverished family’s meagre worldly goods. [7][2]
The census (1682) enumerates 7 unnamed members for this family ‐ including presumably 3 illegitimate daughters for Iba. ... Ibanow known as Anthonique ‐ joins the Stellenbosch household of freeburgher Jacob Aertsz: Brouwer and his twice‐widowed wife Agnetha Rix. Brouwer assaults his wife regularly and on one occasion also another free‐burgher’s wife. He later visciously assaults Iba (1686) with a broomstick soon after also whipping his slave Tido van Goa who dies from his injuries. Iba finally jointly baptizes (1693) her 3 daughters each adopting their own biological father’s name. Amsoeboe next appears (1692) as a miller with both daughters in the Cape District alongside free‐burgher Gerrit Theunisz: (from Utrecht) ‐ concubine to Iba ‐ which couple is again recorded (1695). [7][2][1]

On 4 February 1708 the rotting corpse of town beggar Amsoeboe van Timor aka "Pai Moor" - exiled from Mauritius & Batavia - was discovered in the Company gardens ... he was the Cape's founding father of the ERASMUS, BLOM & De JAGER families ... http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/g6/p6299.htm [7][2][1]

Death

Date: Amsoeboe van Timor passed away in [3] / on February 4, 1708. [2][1]
1 February 1708: "The body of an old black, known as Paay Moor [Amsoeboe van Timor], found dead in the gardens in a small hut. He was accustomed to beg his food in the town. The Fiscal & surgeon & secretary of justice went to examine it. It is believed that he died of natural disease & great poverty. The body being partly decomposed, was buried on the spot." [Journal] (For more information about this man click at the following link: http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/RemarkableWriting/UL05PaiTimor.pdf ) [Mansell Upham] [8]
Place: Decomposed body found in hut in Company Gardens, Cape Town, [South Africa] [2][1]

Research Notes

  1. Regarding the [previously conflated] profile Baauw and Ansela van de Caap as daugther of Amsoeboe and Inabe van Timor - I have created a new profile for their daughter - Baauw van Timor. [9]
  2. I disconnected the profile of Ansela van de Caap as child of Amsoeboe and Inabe van Timor (and therefore as biological sister of Iba van Timor), based on recent DNA research and correspondence recieved 27 Feb, 2016. [10][5]
  3. I removed the spousal connection between Amsoeboe and his de facto wife Inabe van Timor because as yet there is no evidence that they were ever married. [11]

  5. 5.0 5.1 DNA Research Notes: Correspondence received from Ronel Olivier 27 Feb, 2016:
    [...]I spoke to Sharon today after a discussion 2014 about the mt-DNA of this profile and her reply was: This is the Maternal Mitochondrial DNA results [Ian William Garrett 12/12/2015 om 3:45 nm. Report]:
    Two female-line descendants of Ansela van de Caap have now been identified belonging to Maternal Mitochondrial DNA haplogroup L0a1. (www.geni.com > projects/South-African-mtDNA-Female-Progenitors).
    The exciting news is that they represent 2 different lines stemming from Anna van der Swaan, Ansela 's granddaughter. The matching results confirm that Anna van der Swaan belonged to L0a1. Unfortunately only one of Ansela 's daughters produced a mitochondrial lineage (continuous female line)...so this is the closest "triangulation" that can be made to Ansela herself, but with no evidence in the genealogical record to doubt that Anna van der Swaan was the biological grand-daughter of Ansela....it seems reasonable to conclude that Ansela also belonged to haplogroup L0a1.
    The FFY Project reports that an 8th gen. descendant of Catharina de Beer (believed to be the daughter of Iba van Timor) belongs mtDNA haplogroup N (http://www.e-family.co.za/ffy/ui86.htm). While a second result (descending from the same line) would be desirable to confirm this finding, the evidence thus far indicates that Iba van Timor and Ansela van de Caap (Campher) could not have been biological sisters, as their descendants do not share the same mtDNA haplogroup. The finding seems to confirm that Catharina de Beer was indeed a descendant of the exiled Amsoeboe and Inabe van Timor (haplogroup N is consistent with Timorese ancestry) - while Ansela van de Caap was not.
    Not only is Ansela's haplogroup of L0a consistent with African ancestry (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_L0_(mtDNA) but the Wits University HGDDRU lab reported that one of her descendant's results yielded identical matches to:
    • "1 African American individual
    • 1 individual from the Democratic Republic of Congo
    • 4 Zanzibaris
    • 2 South African Coloureds
    • 1 South African Indian individual
    • 1 White South African
    • 67 South African Bantu-speakers".
