Emanuel van Malabar1
M, #15982, b. 1670/71
|BirthOrigin*||Emanuel was from the Malabar Coast and was perhaps born there in 1670/71. He was said to be 22 or 23 years old in 1693.1|
|Slave Transactions||On 2 July 1693 Emanuel van Malabar was sold by Jacob Dircx van Uijthuysen to Theunis Dircksen Schalckwyck, for Rds. 70.2|
On 24 October 1695 Emanuel van Malabar and Domingo van Masulipatnam were were exchanged by Theunis Dircksen van Schalckwyck for Arent van Madagascar who was owned by Jan Maerschalk. Domingo van Masulipatnam was permitted to keep his money. Because he fits the age profile and there seems to be no other candidate, I have assumed Domingo to be the same individual purchased by Van Schalckwijck in 1687 even though on that occasion he was described as from Masulipatnam. Corrections welcome.3
