At around seven years old, Jacobus Capitein of Ghana was kidnapped from his parents in sub-saharan Africa and sent to the Dutch, where he was purchased by Arnold Steenhard. Steenhard gave Capitein as a gift to Jacob Van Goch, who took him to Holland in 1728 (Goch was actually the one to give him the name Capitein, which is Dutch for captain.).
