BirthOrigin*Anthonij was from the Coromandel Coast and may have been born there circa 1677.1 
Marriage De facto* After 29 November 1690 Anthonij van der Kust Coromandel and Sara van Madagascar were in a de facto relationship. I have assumed this relationship began after Sara was sold into the same household as Anthonij. I have also assumed they were the couple who baptised two children in 1703.2 


Sara van Madagascar b. 1664/65
Slave TransactionsOn 16 April 1688 Anthonij van der Kust Coromandel and Leander van der Kust Coromandel were sold by Remundus Buijck to Johannes van Keulen, for Rds. 70.3
