Birth*Dirck van Cuijck was born circa 1658.1,2
Slave TransactionsOn 4 August 1688 Scipio van Malabar was sold by Jan Dircksen de Beer to Dirck van Cuijck, for Rds. 40. Although identified in this record as from the Coromandel Coast, I have assumed, with a view toward further discovery in the record, that this is the same individual purchased by Jan Dircks de Beer in 1687.1
On 7 April 1691 Cupido van Madagascar was sold from the estate of Dirck van Cuijck by Roelof Bakker and Albert Coopman to Fredrick Russouw de Wit for Rds. 60.3
