BirthOrigin*Januarij was from Malabar Coast and was perhaps born there circa 1720. The date is estimated based on the fact he was an adult in 1750.1 
Slave EmancipationsIn 1724 Anna van der Heyde applied for the manumission of her daughter Anna van Beulen who at the time was a 9-year-old in the Slave Lodge. It is assumed that the application was successful because in May 1735 her daughter married which she could not have done if she had still been enslaved. Anna van der Heijde offered the "healthy" slave Januarij van Mallebaar in exchange for her daughter's freedom. However he is recorded as part of the estate of her husband Willem Stolts in 1750, suggesting that this exchange was ultimately not enforced.2
Slaves owned by individualsBy the time he died shortly before 3 October 1750 when an inventory was taken of his estate, Willem Stolts came to own at least the eleven slaves named in the inventory. They were Januarij van Mallebaar, Jacob van Rio de la Goa, Leander van de Caab, Februarij van de Caab, Cupido van Bengalen, Cupido van Mallebaar, Joseph van Bengalen, Jan van Maccassar, Jonas van Mallebaar, Johanna van Maccassar and Rebecca van Rio de la Goa, what became of them is yet to be discovered in the record.3
