On 30 January 1662 the Angelier and Oijevaer departed from Batavia for the Cape where they docked on 2 April 1662. Among the pasengers on board the vessels were Zacharias Wagenaer, Maria aux Brebis and Maria de Bucquoij. Accompanying Wagenaer were his slaves Louis van Bengale, Annike van Bengale and Anthonij de Later van Japan. The widow Verburg (Maria de Bucquoij) was accompanied by her personal slave Catharina van Malabar.
It is roughly estimated that Annike van Bengale was born circa 1640 in Bengal based on baptism as een bejaert persoon . She was baptised on 21 November 1666 at the Cape
