History[edit] On 18 May 1696, a former VOC officer Cornelis Chastelein bought the land with an area of 12.44 km2, 6.2% the area of today's Depok. Besides cultivating the area with industrial plants with the help of the locals, Chastelein was active as a missionary, preaching Christianity
Christianity
to the indigenous Indonesians. To this end, he established a local congregation named De Eerste Protestante Organisatie van Christenen (DEPOC).[1][2] Although the Sundanese name Depok, meaning hermitage or abode of one living in seclusion, was already in existence before the establishment of the congregation, some[who?] insist the acronym might have been the origin of the city's name. Today majority of Depok's population are adherent to Islam, except for the majority of the original Depok
Depok
family. Before his death on June 28, 1714, Chastelein had written a will that freed the slave families of Depok
Depok
and gave them pieces of his land, converting slaves into landlords. In 1714, the 12 slave families became landlords (forever as given to them with entitlement deeds of the owner Chastelien in his will) and freed men, women, and children. The freed slaves are also referred to as the Mardijker's - the word Merdeka meaning freedom in Bahasa Indonesia. June 28 is designated as Depokse Daag ( Depok
Depok
Day) by the original Depok
Depok
family, and on June 28, 2014, 300 years of commemoration, they formally opened a 3-meter height monument on its own land, but it was prohibited by the Government as it referred to Dutch colonialization.[5] The 12 original Depok
Depok
family names are:[6]

Bacas Isakh Jacob Jonathans Joseph Laurens Leander Loen Sadokh Samuel Soedira Tholense

The original slave families of Depok
Depok
are of Balinese, Ambonese, Buginese, Sundanese and Portuguese Indo, i.e., Mestizo and Mardijker descent. Isakh, Jacob, Jonathans, Joseph, and Samuel were family names baptized by Chastelein after the slave families converted to Protestant Christianity. The other families retained their original names and might have been (Roman Catholic) Christian already before joining Chastelein's Protestant church. Descendants of the original Depok
Depok
families with the exception of the Sadokh family, still live either in Indonesia
Indonesia
or the Netherlands.[7][6] In 1871, the colonial government gave Depok
Depok
a special status allowing the area to form its own government and president. The ruling no longer stood after 1952, where the Depok
Depok
presidency ceded its control of Depok
Depok
to the Indonesian government except for a few areas. During the Bersiap
Bersiap
(Indonesian civil war and war for independence from The Netherlands) period of 1945 much of Depok
Depok
was destroyed and many of its inhabitants killed by 'Pemuda'.[8] Many of the original Depok families fled for their lives from Indonesia
Indonesia
during the Indonesian revolution and now live in the Netherlands as part of the Indo community there.[9] In March 1982, Depok
Depok
was reclassified as an administrative city within Bogor Regency
Bogor Regency
and, in 1999, as a city headed by a mayor. Then on 20 April 1999, the city of Depok
Depok
was unified with some neighbouring districts of Bogor Regency
Bogor Regency
to form an autonomous city of Depok (independent of the Regency) with an area of 200.29 km2.[10] This date is commemorated as a date of the establishment of the city. Administrative[edit] Districts[edit] Depok
