Well, I believe he got his first beating in Georgia (Savannah) while standing in Doctor Perkins yard. The Doctor didn't like the fact he had "strange negroes in his yard," and Equiano was beaten. (Page 269)

Please be more specific with further questions. I can't be entirely sure that no beating occurred before the one listed above.
