BirthOrigin*Maria was from Coromandel Coast and was perhaps born there in 1674/75. I have assumed she was from the Coromandel Coast, but she could also have been from one of the other coastal regions such as Malabar, Madhur, etc.1 
Slave TransactionsOn 26 May 1690 Maria van der Kust was sold by Hendrik Vernh to Julius Conradus Lasius, for Rds. 55.2
