BirthOrigin*Paulus was from Malabar Coast and perhaps born there circa 1657.1 
Slave TransactionsOn 6 April 1677 Paulus van Malabar was sold by Pieter Philip Col to Jan Valckenrijck, for Rds. 50.2,3
On 15 June 1680 Paulus van Malabar was sold by Hillegond Redoux to Jan Vlack, for Rds. 36. I assume this to be the same slave purchased by her (now deceased) husband in 1677.4,5
