on this website you
can find the names of the sailors who left Europe with the VOC to Africa
and the Far East. It used to be in English too, but somehow I could not
find that site.
I typed in "Achternaam" which is Family name this: *felt There are 130
results but no Saalfelt
for *veld it gave more than 500 results
for *velt there were also more than 500 results
for *veldt there were 161 results.
there is one Johan Salveld in 1691 which does not fit your time line.
You would have to look for your Saalfelt in any spelling .
Good luck and if you have any questions in Dutch, let me know.

I am looking for information on a family named SAALFELT. They were
originally based with the VOC in Jaffna in the mid 1700's and later, after
1800 in Pulicat, Negapatinam and Madras.
If anyone knows anything about them, I would be very grateful to hear of
The other Dutch and non British families pre 1850 I am researching
(Meppen, Ter Loenen, Van Someren, Rodijk, Diurstedt, Breithaupt) were
mainly based along the Coromandel coast, not living in Ceylon, but
connected to the Saalfelts.
Any help would be most welcome.
