Slaves and Free Blacks at the Cape 1658–1700.


The history of the Cape Coloured people began with those forced immigrants who were grought to the shores of Table bay and sold into slavery from as early as 1658 by officials of the Dutch East India company,by skippers and seamen,by English and Danish slave traders.From these very early days their history and their destiny have been interwoven with that of South Africa.In this definitive work the author traces their origin from unpublished documents of sale that have been preserved in the Deeds office in Cape Town.
