Birth*Paul van Madagascar was born circa 1665 in Madagascar.1
Slave TransactionsOn 6 March 1687 Isaak van Madagascar and Paul van Madagascar were sold by Sibrand de Fraij to Jan Dircks de Beer, for Rds. 85. De Faij subsequently disputed this transaction, saying he had only sold a second slave to De Beer, in addition to the sale of Theange van Madagascar recorded two days prior.2

  2. [S418] Anna J. Böeseken, Slaves and Free Blacks at the Cape 1658-1700, p. Isaak (21) and Paul (22) from Madagascar, sold by Sibrand de Fraij, cook of the Jambi, to Jan Dircx de Beer for Rds. 85. A note added states that Sibrand de Fraij refused to sign the above deed, as Jan Dircx de Beer bought only one slave, Theange from Madagascar, for Rds. 40 and one other slave for Rds. 45, and not both slaves mentioned in this deed.
