Aimable Claudine (1825)

Voyage Overview

The Dutch Schooner, Aimable Claudine, left Bordeaux on 16 August 1825 and purchased 34 enslaved people at Little Popo (no date recorded). The captain, Claudio Picaluga, sailed the vessel toward Cuba when an undocumented British ship captured the vessel somewhere off the coast of West Africa. Although the ship’s owner, Zangronis, was never formerly charged, the British and Netherlands Court of Mixed Commission, Sierra Leone condemned this vessel and registered 34 Liberated Africans by 6 January 1826.
