|BirthOrigin*||Arent was from Madagascar and perhaps born there circa 1670. I have assumed all the slaves sold by William Deeron in January 1684 were from Madagascar and similarly arbitrarily estimated their dates of birth - based on the purchase price.3|
|Names in the record, in publications, etc.||21 January 1684, the name of Arent was written in the record as Unnamed and Gender Unspecified Slave van Madagascar.3|
|Slave Transactions||On 21 January 1684 Arent van Madagascar was sold by William Deeron to Theunis Dirks van Schalkwijk, for Rds. 53.4|
On 14 November 1691 Arent van Madagascar was sold by Theunis Dircksen van Schalckwyck to Gerrit Janse van Deventer and Michiel Niemand, for f 400. The amount of f 200 was to be paid on 1.1.1693.2
- I have assumed this to be the same unnamed individual purchased by Van Schalckwyck on 21 January 1684.
