born
 
in
 
Rio
 
Grande
 
(now
 
Natal)
 
in
 
what
 
was
 
then
 
Dutch
 
Brazil,
 
in
 
about
 
1645.
 
The
 
Portuguese,
 
intent
 
on
 
regaining
 
their
 
colony,
 
managed
 
to
 
chase
 
the
 
Dutch
 
out
 
in
 
1655.
 
An
 
exodus
 
followed:
 
of 
 
Dutch
 
settlers,
 
those
 
closely
 
associated
 
with
 
them,
 
and
 
of 
 
Jews.
 
The
 
Dutch
 
in
 
Brazil
 
had
 
always
 
welcomed
 
the
 
Jews
 
but
 
the
 
Portuguese
 
had
 
a
 
different
 
policy.
 
The
 
refugees
 
went
 
to
 
New
 
Amsterdam
 
(now
 
New
 
York),
 
Cayenne
 
(which
 
became
 
a
 
Dutch
 
colony
 
that
 
year),
 
Curaçao
 
and
 
Statia.
 
They
 
took
 
their
 
knowledge
 
of 
 
sugar
 
cultivation
 
and
 
processing
 
along
 
with
 
them.
 
The
 
Vaz
 
family,
 
including
 
little
 
Françoise,
 
chose
 
to
 
go
 
to
 
Statia.
 
Françoise’s
 
childhood
 
and
 
teenage
 
years
 
on
 
Statia
 
were
 
likely
 
to
 
have
 
been
 
peaceful.
 
The
 
island
 
was
 
left
 
to
 
prosper
 
under
 
the
 
Dutch
 
flag.
 
However,
 
as
 
she
 
entered
 
adulthood,
 
Statia’s
 
first
 
28
 
years
 
of 
 
peace
 
came
 
to
 
an
 
end
 
and
 
a
 
period
 
of 
 
repeated
 
flag
 
changes
 
followed.
 
The
 
British
 
(with
 
their
 
King
 
Charles
 
II
 
first
 
and
 
foremost
 
amongst
 
them)
 
were
 
envious
 
of 
 
the
 
growth
 
of 
 
Dutch
 
wealth
 
and
 
power
 
and
 
tried
 
to
 
break
 
the
 
Dutch
 
hold
 
over
 
international
 
trade
 
by
 
force.
 
In
 
1664,
 
the
 
British
 
rear
admiral
 
Robert
 
Holmes
 
raided
 
Statia
 
(and
 
Dutch
 
Tobago)
 
 –
 
in
 
plain
 
peace
 
time.
 
The
 
aim
 
was
 
not
 
to
 
take
 
the
 
island
 
(no
 
war
 
had
 
been
 
declared
 
after
 
all),
 
but
 
to
 
ruin
 
the
 
island’s
 
economy
 
and
 
commercial
 
poten
tial.
 
The
 
Vaz
 
family
 
must
 
have
 
suffered
 
the
 
same
 
fate
 
as
 
the
 
other
 
inhabitants:
 
they
 
were
 
robbed
 
of 
 
By
 
Walter
 
Hellebrand
 
Amongst
 
those
 
of 
 
you
 
who
 
used
 
to
 
read
 
my
 
articles
 
in
 
the
 
Daily
 
Herald,
 
some
 
already
 
know
 
that
 
differ
ent
 
views
 
of 
 
the
 
respect
 
a
 
newspaper
 
should
 
have
 
for
 
its
 
readers
 
and
 
contributors
 
mean
 
that
 
I
 
do
 
not
 
feel
 
comfortable
 
seeing
 
my
 
articles
 
appear
 
under
 
the
 
heading
 
of 
 
The
 
Daily
 
Herald.
 
And
 
for
 
those
 
of 
 
you
 
who
 
were
 
wondering,
 
now
 
you
 
know
 
the
 
rea
son.
 
However,
 
there
 
are
 
other
 
ways
 
of 
 
sharing
 
the
 
rich
 
and
 
fascinating
 
history
 
of 
 
Statia
 
and
 
its
 
neighbours.
 
Statia
 
News
 
is
 
a
 
recent
 
alternative
 
that
 
has
 
been
 
launched
 
 just
 
at
 
the
 
right
 
time
 
and
 
I
 
hope
 
and
 
trust
 
it
 
will
 
continue
 
to
 
grow.
 
French
 
Guyana
 
I
 
have
 
 just
 
come
 
back
 
from
 
a
 
trip
 
to
 
French
 
Guyana
 
where
 
I
 
attempted
 
to
 
find
 
the
 
locations
 
of 
 
the
 
Dutch
 
fortifications
 
that
 
were
 
constructed
 
there
 
in
 
the
 
17
th
 
century.
 
The
 
local
 
archaeology
 
department
 
was
 
very
 
happy
 
with
 
my
 
visit
 
and
 
with
 
the
 
help
 
of 
 
their
 
facili
ties
 
and
 
contacts,
 
I
 
succeeded.
 
During
 
the
 
course
 
of 
 
my
 
research
 
there,
 
I
 
also
 
came
 
across
 
a
 
story
 
with
 
a
 
Statian
 
connection
 
that
 
I
 
thought
 
was
 
very
 
interesting
 
and
 
perhaps
 
a
 
little
 
dif 
ferent.
 
It
 
is
 
different
 
because
 
it
 
is
 
a
 
17
th
 
century
 
story
 
with
 
a
 
woman
 
at
 
the
 
center
 
instead
 
of 
 
the
 
men
 
that
 
normally
 
dominate
 
historical
 
accounts
 
of 
 
that
 
era.
 
I
 
therefore
 
thought
 
I
 
would
 
share
 
it
 
with
 
the
 
readers
 
of 
 
Statia
 
News.
 
It
 
is
 
the
 
story
 
of 
 
an
 
energetic
 
woman
 
who
 
was
 
deter
mined
 
to
 
be
 
a
 
winner
whatever
 
blow
 
history
 
dealt
 
her.
 
It
 
also
 
illustrates
 
how
 
one
 
woman’s
 
life
 
got
 
caught
 
up
 
in
 
the
 
ups
 
and
 
downs
 
of 
 
Dutch
 
colonial
 
power
 
and
 
in
 
the
 
European
 
struggle
 
to
 
get
 
as
 
large
 
a
 
share
 
as
 
possible
 
of 
 
the
 
potential
 
the
 
America’s
 
had
 
to
 
offer.

Françoise
 
Vaz
 
gives
 
us

rare
 
insight

the

in
 
the
 
life
 
of 
 
a
 
woman

to
 
get

the
 
uncertain

of

thing
 
and
 
in
 
1665
 
the
 
Second
 
Anglo
Dutch
 
War
 
broke
 
out.
 
On
 
23
 
July
 
of 
 
that
 
same
 
year,
 
the
 
Gover
nor
 
of 
 
Jamaica
 
sent
 
out
 
Edward
 
Morgan
 
(uncle
 
of 
 
the
 
infamous
 
filibuster
 
Henry
 
Morgan)
 
to
 
Statia,
 
together
 
with
 
329
 
buccaneers.
 
They
 
forced
 
Fort
 
Oranje
 
to
 
surrender.
 
The
 
English
 
deport
 
Statia
 
population
 
Françoise’s
 
family
 
must
 
have
 
been
 
with
 
the
 
19
 
Dutch
 
nationals
 
(men,
 
women
 
and
 
children)
 
who
 
switched
 
allegiance
 
to
 
the
 
English
 
or
 
they
 
may
 
have
 
claimed
 
Portuguese
 
nationality
 
because
 
all
 
other
 
Dutch
 
citizens
 
(250
 
in
 
total)
 
were
 
robbed
 
of 
 
their
 
possessions,
 
transported
 
to
 
St.
 
Maarten
 
and
 
later
 
ordered
 
by
 
King
 
Charles
 
II
 
to
 
be
 
deported
 
to
 
Barba
dos
 
as
 
forced
 
laborers
 
for
 
the
 
plantations
 
there.
 
The
 
fact
 
that
 
the
 
loot
 
of 
 
the
 
British
 
included
 
300
 
cattle,
 
50
 
horses,
 
500
 
sheep
 
and
 
goats,
 
50,000
 
pounds
 
of 
 
cotton,
 
840
 
slaves
 
plus
 
the
 
sugar
 
works
 
their
 
merchandise
 
and
 
stripped
 
of 
 
everything
 
of 
 
value.
 
Fort
 
Oranje
 
surrendered
 
to
 
buccaneers
 
Still
 
recovering
 
from
 
this
 
blow
 
and
 
trying
 
to
 
rebuild
 
the
 
island,
 
the
 
next
 
year
 
Françoise
 
and
 
her
 
fellow
 
Statians
 
were
 
shocked
 
to
 
see
 
another
 
army
 
fleet
 
of 
 
26
 
ships
 
approaching
 
their
 
shores.
 
They
 
could
 
breath
 
a
 
sigh
 
of 
 
relief:
 
it
 
was
 
the
 
Dutch
 
Vice
Admiral
 
Michiel
 
de
 
Ruyter
 
who
 
had
 
been
 
sent
 
out
 
to
 
restore
 
Dutch
 
power
 
in
 
the
 
region.
 
All
 
the
 
excitement
 
about
 
enter
taining
 
the
 
crème
 
de
 
la
 
crème
 
of 
 
the
 
Dutch
 
navy
 
was
 
rudely
 
interrupted
 
by
 
an
 
enemy
 
of 
 
a
 
different
 
kind:
 
a
 
hurricane.
 
It
 
may
 
have
 
been
 
the
 
first
 
one
 
Françoise
 
experienced
 
as
 
the
 
previous
 
ten
 
years
 
seem
 
to
 
have
 
been
 
a
 
relatively
 
calm
 
period
 
in
 
this
 
respect.
 
The
 
hur
ricane
 
chased
 
away
 
De
 
Ruyter’s
 
ships.
 
The
 
next
 
armed
 
fleet
 
to
 
appear
 
before
 
Statia’s
 
coast
 
did
 
not
 
receive
 
a
 
 joyous
 
welcome.
 
It
 
signalled
 
the
 
start
 
of 
 
a
 
rapid
 
succession
 
of 
 
flag
 
changes

The
