Unnamed and Gender Unspecified Slave van Madagascar1
?, #15721, b. circa 1660
|BirthOrigin*||Unnamed was from Madagascar and perhaps born there circa 1660.1|
|Slave Transactions||On 28 January 1684 Unnamed and Gender Unspecified Slave van Madagascar was exchanged by Steven Bradly with Wilhelm Meyer for the slave Claes plus Rds. 20. Given the cash sum paid, this transaction seems unusual, if not unlikely, and I have therefor for now assumed there were just two slaves involved, and that Böeseken misread the record that a third was included. Corrections welcome.2|
