BirthOrigin*Tidoor was from Goa and perhaps born there circa 1660.1 
Slave TransactionsOn 10 November 1677 Tidoor van Goa and Jan van Madagascar were sold by Tobias Marquaert to Leendert Jansz van Gijselen, as part of the sale of a home, stables and erf, garden, pots, his property of 101 morgen 295 roods on the Liesbeeck known as Boschenvelt, 5 cattle, 2 horses, a fully equipped wagon and gardening equipment for a skuldbrief of f 6 300. Only the first names of the slaves were included in the record, and I have assumed these were the correct individuals.2
On 14 May 1683 Tidoor van Goa was sold by Leendert Jansz van Gijselen to Jacob Aartse Brouwer.3
