NOTES ON HUGUENOT FAMILIES AT THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE BY THE LATE C. C. DE VILLIERS, ESQ

DE VILLIERS, Abraham, Pierre, and Jacob, three brothers, vine-dressers from the neighbourhood of La Rochelle, arrived here in the Zion on the 6th May 1689. In a despatch from the Chamber of Delft, dated 16th Dec. 1688, and received by the Zion, special reference is made to these three brothers as possessing a good knowledge of the cultivation of the vine, and recommending the Governor to give them every assistance. In this despatch the names are mentioned in the following order—(1) Pierre, (2) Abraham, and (3) Jacob, which may perhaps indicate the order of seniority. In the Distribution List 1690 we have Abraham DE VILLIERS ‘with wife and two brothers,’ and among Drakenstein families 1692:--Abraham DE VILLIERS ‘with wife and two children,’ Jacob DE VILLIERS ‘with wife and two children,’ and Pierre DE VILLIERS ‘with wife and one child.’ Abraham married 1689 Susanne GARDIOL, and left nothing but daughters.

Jacob married Marguerite GARDIOL, first baptismal entry 1693. Pierre Married Elizabeth TAILLEFER, first baptismal entry 1699.

I have taken a good deal of trouble to find out the relative ages of these brothers, but have only succeeded in ascertaining Jacob’s from a joint will executed 11th Jan. 1719, in which he gives his age as 58 years and describes himself as a native of ‘Borgondien.’ His wife (Marguerite GARDIOL) is stated in the same document to have been born in Provence and to be 45 years old.

The DE VILLIERS are at the present time the most numerous of the Huguenot families here, and are all descendants of Pierre and Jacob.

A family tradition states that four brothers left their home, but the youngest (Paul) after having gone some distance became homesick, turned back, and was never heard of again.

History of La Bri

http://www.la-bri.co.za/history.htm

Situated in the imposing amphitheater of the Franschhoek valley, La Bri has been the source of fine wines for centuries.In April 1688, the first 270 French Huguenots settlers landed in Saldana Bay.. Exiles from their country, persecuted for their Protestant faith, they left France in search of tolerance and freedom, bringing with them a not insignificant knowledge of viticulture.

The Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel, eager to develop the agricultural promise of "the Cape of Good Hope", welcomed the Huguenots and the skills they brought with them. Thus in October 1694, nine French Huguenot settlers were granted farms in "Olifantshoekvallei". The settlers named their farms in memory of their distant homeland. Jacques de Villiers called his portion of the land La Bri. Under his direction the elephant inhabited wilderness became cultivated vineyard. Today we call this valley Franschhoek

--------------------

Jacques was born in 1661, probably in the vicinity of Cognac, south west France. As he grew up he probably learnt all about growing vines and making wine from his parents. Because of the persecution of the Huguenots, after Louis XIV's revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, Jacques and his two brothers, Pierre and Abraham fled to Holland. At that time De Heere 17's Verenigde Oos Indiese Companjie [VOIC] operated a trading post at the Cape of Good Hope. Since they found that the Cape was very suitable for wine production, they offered some of the Huguenots refugees who had experience in this field free passage to the Cape. On 16 December 1688 the three de Villiers brothers boarded the 120 foot long barque Zion but, because of bad weather, they only sailed for the Cape, from Texel, on 8 January 1689. After a four months long journey Jacques stepped ashore at the Cape on the morning of 6 May 1689. Here he was granted land in the valley near Franschhoek and he named his farm La Brie. He married another Huguenot, Marguerite Gardiol and a couple of years later they bought the farm Boschendal from his brother Abraham. When Jacques died on 17 May 1735 his son Jean took over the farming on Boschendal.
