Alvatier

Alvatier is mentioned in the VOC's land muster-rolls of 1705. Alvatier is named alongside the settlements on the Madurese Coast in southern India. The 'Alvatier native station' was habitually staffed by two VOC officials. Later, in 1715, mention is made of an 18-strong staff at the station. In his history of the VOC (1701) Pieter van Dam names the settlement as Allwatiennegary, situated inland from Tutucorin.
