Birth*Adriaen van Bengale was born circa 1640 in Bengal.1
 
(Slaves) ShipVoyage On 23 December 1661 the Prinses Royael, Marseveen and De Vogel Phoenicx, ships of the return fleet, departed Batavia enroute to the Cape where they docked on 15 March 1662. Arriving on board the Prinses Royaal were the slaves Catharina van Malabar and Pieter van Ceylon. The Marseveen carried 15 slaves namely: Baddou van Bali, Jeronimus van Coromandel, Matthijs van Coromandel, Jantje van Bengale, Adriaen van Bengale, Gratia d' Costa, Paulo van Malabar, Catharina van Bengale, Jacob Cornelisse van Colombo, Jan Luy van Ceylon, Ventura van Ceylon, Pai Marquart van Ceylon, Florinda van Jafnapatnam and Helena van Malabar.1 
Slave EmancipationsOn 2 January 1687, Adriaen van Bengale, Abraham van Guinea, Leidsare Origin Unknown, Mirra Moor van Ceylon, Gratia d' Costa and Koddo van Guinea were emancipated in terms of a Resolution of the Council of Policy, in recognition of the long and faithful service — na veler jaren goede en trouwe diensten. They were described as old and decrepit — oud en afgeleevd — and no longer able to serve — buijten staat langer te konnen dienen. This begs the question how they would then be able to support themselves.2
