BirthOrigin*Jan was from Macassar and perhaps born there circa 1666.1 
Slave TransactionsOn 25 March 1686 Jan Credit van Macassar was sold by Beyer Visch on behalf of Cornelius Lindius to either Johannes Mulder or Jan Claesz Mulder, for Rds. 60. He would be freed if he returned to Java. I am not sure which of the Johannes Mulder's was the purchaser.2
