Scipio van Malabar1
M, #14577, b. circa 1674
|BirthOrigin*||Scipio was from Malabar Coast and perhaps born there circa 1674.1|
|Names in the record, in publications, etc.||4 August 1688, the name of Scipio was written in the record as Scipio van der Kust Coromandel.2|
|Slave Transactions||On 24 January 1687 Scipio van Malabar was sold by Jan Bouman to Jan Dircks de Beer, for Rds. 20.3|
On 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 1687.2
