From a newspaper article:

While searching for this family I encountered various other SA Boernes, but those names never popped up. Maybe she's still alive of could she be in/from another country?

The Common Room / Re: slaves in INDIA in 1925?? Surely not
« on: Monday 02 April 18 07:28 BST (UK)  »
Or there could be some truth to it after all???:
The British abolished slavery in India in 1843 and in Nepal in 1925. Additionally, the Moguls continued with slaves in India after 1843.

Some Google hits:

and them there was also the "Indentured labor system" in India:

Were you talking about Hendrica herself? The exctract of her birth certificate (in her 1912 "huwelijksbijlagen") mentions that she wasn't acknowledged until her parents marriage a few years later.

She was born as: Hendrika Maria de Lille in Arnhem (prov: Gelderland)

1894 Marriage certificate of her parents: (3 daughters are being acknowledged)
The “Huwelijksbijlagen” start here:  (image 1378 is the extract of Hendrica’s birth, image1382 is the birth extract for the Bride,who was also illegitimate)

I'm a bit confused by this ‘recognition by parents’  as I cannot find Hendrica Maria Hofstede having children before 1912. Could you show me some examples ...

Here are some examples of actual certificates for this family:
Antonius Petrus Tonnon ( born 11/1/1886 Delfshaven) X Hendrica Maria Hofstede (born 18/12/1890 Arnhem, died 21-11-1929)
Marriage: 22-05-1912 Rotterdam
Marriage certificate:
“Huwelijksbijlagen” = (Pre) Marriage documentation – 4 pages start here:
Death Certificate (Hendrica):

Petrus Josephus Tonnon b 02-11-1912 Rotterdam, d 17-01-1913 Rotterdam
Birth Certificate:
Death Certificate:

NN Tonnon ( NN = Nomen Nescio, generally used for stillborn children, death certificate only) d 19-11-1913
Death Certificate:

So you've found the birth certificate for Petrus Josephus Tonnon (1912)?

BTW Antonius Petrus Tonnon was born in 1916, so his birth certificate is allowed to be made public. However, it isn't online yet as archives tend to make batches of certificates available.
