BirthOrigin*Siko was from the Coromandel Coast and was perhaps born there circa 1673. He was said to be 26 years old in 1699.1 
Slave TransactionsOn 25 February 1699 Siko van de Kust Coromandel was sold by Pieter Pijl to Francois van der Stel, for Rds. 60. I have assumed the seller in this transaction is the same individual who married Jeanne Nel in 1708. Corrections welcome.2
