- [S418] Anna J. Böeseken, Slaves and Free Blacks at the Cape 1658-1700, p.151. 3.2.1688, pp. 31-32: Aron from Coromandel (30), Bastiaan from Coromandel (14), Titus from Coromandel (20), and Maria from CoromandeI (10), sold by Christiaan Juriaense (signature Jörg), first mate of the Danish ship Antoinette, to Cornelis Theunis for Rds. 40, Rds. 40, Rds. 40 and Rds. 46 respectively. [DR: In Changing Hands, Robert Shell notes that the purchaser in this transaction was Cornelis Linnes. I have been unable to identify the Cornelis Theunis referred to by Anna Böeseken, and until evidence to contrary surfaces, have assumed Shell to be correct.]
