BirthOrigin*Domingo was from Pondicherry and was perhaps born there circa 1683. He was said to be 14 years old in 1697.1 
Slave TransactionsOn 25 June 1697 Domingo van Pondicherry was sold by Jan Hendrik Smit to Henning Hüsing, for Rds. 40. I have assumed the day of this transaction to be the 25th, given that it is recorded in the middle of several others on this day.2
