9 In his will, dated 1713, he is described as having been born in Amsterdam and being 45 years old. In the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam is recorded the baptism of 'Adrian, son of Roelof Adriaensz van Wijk and Trijntje Jans, 18th January 1668.
(Amsterdam information kindly supplied by Bob Kernkamp).

Since Roelof van Wijk and Trijntje Jans also lived at the Cape, I think we can safely assume that this baptism is his.

Also in his will he is desribed as 'sick, confined to bed'. One can speculate that in this year of Smallpox plague that this is what he was suffering from - certainly he died in the same year.

---------------------
Philip van Wyck's research suggests that Roelof was the second son by that name born to Roelof Roelofsen VAN WIJCK and Susannetgen Jans, the older of the two boys, born on 1/1/1628, was assumed to have died in infancy.

Johan van Deventer's text read, '. . . there are serious errors in the Van Wijck/Wijk/Wyk family tree. Roelof (not even mentioned in dV/P) is a1 and the father of Adrian (Arie) referred to as a2 in dV/P. It is more likely that Roelof and Willem were brothers with the same father but different mothers. Roelof (*abt ?1643? - in Holland), his wife Trijntje Jans (*abt 1637) and their son Arie van Wijck (~18/1/1655 in Amsterdam) came to SA about 1677. At the same time Willem van Wijck (*bef 1655) also arrived in SA. Now for the big mistake: Page 1154 dV/P about in the middle there is c8 Arie Willem ~2/11/1738 up to d5 Margaretha Johanna ~15/3/1795 just before b8 on p.1155; should be moved to p.1149 under b1c2 Gerrit ~30/9/1714, 3rd line from top. Then; c8 Arie Willem should change to be a2b1c2d1; this is thus the Willem a2 line . . .'
What is entered here in this branch of the family reflects these suggested corrections.

Goeie More Richard en Jean,
Baie dankie vir die inligting. Ek soek baie keer om my bron te kry en dan kan ek sommer myself skop.

Jean jy het melding gemaak dat "Elisabeth van Wyk(1683-1720) was 'n dogter van Willem van Wyk en Anna Pieterse"

Margaret Cairns meld op bladsy 57 dat die twee broers Willem en Arie VAN WYK het in 1678 na die Kaap gekom,.................................

Kom vanaf Amsterdam in ongeveer 1677 saam met sy ouers in die Kaap aan. Voornaam ook as 'Arij/Ary/ Arije/Arye'. Burger van Stellenbosch. Met die opstel van sy testament te Stellenbosch in 1713 word sy ouderdom as 45 jaar aangegee. Sy naam verskyn as 'Arij van Wijk' in testament.

Arie was the progenitor (stamvader) of the Van Wyk family in South Africa. He was from Amsterdam and arrived in the Cape during 1676/78. Presumably he had come to the Cape with his parents, Roelof van Wijk and Trijntje Jans, who had been living at the Cape since at least 1686.
The earliest mention of Arij at the Cape is from 1693 to 1695 when he and his wife, Cornelia, were found living in the Cape Town area on a farm which carried 4,000 vines. By 1696 they had moved to Stellenbosch where they lived for the rest of his life. By 1700 they had 10,000 vines.
He farmed at Stellenbosch on the farm "Kijkenvallei".

Arij van Wijk was one of the two stamvaders of the Van Wijk family who arrived at the Cape in the 17th Century. The other was Willem van Wijk. It seems likely that they were related to one another but how is not yet apparent.

The earliest mention of Arij at the Cape is from 1693 to 1695 when he and his wife, Cornelia Helmes, are found living in the Cape Town area on a farm which carried 4000 vines. By 1696 they had moved to Stellenbosch where they lived for the rest of his life. By 1700 they had 10,000 vines.

His Origins and Parentage In his will dated 29th April 1713, he stated that he was 45 years old and that he had been born in Amsterdam. According to the indexes in the Amsterdam Archives, there were two Adrian van Wijks baptised at this period, but the following would seem to be his baptism:

Adrian, baptised Nieuwe Kerk 18 January 1668
parents: Roelof Adriaensz van Wijk and Trijntje Jans
witnesses: Hendrik Coenraetsz van der Meijde
and Aaltje Adriaens van Wijk

since Roelof van Wijk and Trijntje Jans had been living at the Cape since at least 1686. Presumably he had come to the Cape with his parents.

In his will, dated 1713, he is described as having been born in Amsterdam and being 45 years old. In the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam is recorded the baptism of 'Adrian, son of Roelof Adriaensz van Wijk and Trijntje Jans, 18th January 1668. (Amsterdam information kindly supplied by Bob Kernkamp). Since Roelof van Wijk and Trijntje Jans also lived at the Cape, I think we can safely assume that this baptism is his.

Also in his will he is desribed as 'sick, confined to bed'. One can speculate that in this year of Smallpox plague that this is what he was suffering from - certainly he died in the same year.

His Marriage He Married Cornelia Helmes, the widow of Jan van den Bosch. The date is not known but, on 22nd October 1693 a note in the Orphan Chamber records states that she was then intending to remarry, so this is probably the approximate date. She had three children from her first marriage: Catharina, Johannes and Johanna van den Bosch.

According to her will, dated 29th April 1713, she was then 37 years old and had been born at the Cape.

Their Children

b1. Roelof van Wijk, baptized 5 September 1694, Cape Town,
married Aletta Bezuijdenhout.
He died circa July 1746, leaving 8 children.

b2. Aletta van Wijk baptized 15 July 1696, Cape Town,
married Johann Kraaij

b3. Willem van Wijk, baptized 19 January 1698, Stellenbosch
When he died around 1771 he left no wife or children and his
estate was distributed among his brothers and sisters.

b4. Sara van Wijk, baptized 29 November 1699, Stellenbosch,
married Isaak d'Algue, later known as Johannes Dreyer.

b5. Adrianus van Wijk, baptized 25 December 1701, Stellenbosch
He presumably died before 1705 when his younger brother, also
named Adriaan, must have been born according to his age (8) and
position as given in his parent's will of 1713.

b6. Maria van Wijk born circa 1704,
married firstly Jan Joubert and secondly Wolraad Striegel

b7. Adriaan van Wijk, born circa 1705,
married Sara Fourie, and left 11 children.

b8. Gerrit van Wijk, baptized 14 December 1707, Stellenbosch,
most probably buried before 12 August 1708, Stellenbosch

He was not mentioned in his parent's will of 1713, so had
presumably died before that date.

b9. Catarina van Wijk, baptized 20 July 1710, Stellenbosch,
married Hendrik Lubbe

b10. Hester van Wijk, baptized 3 October 1712, Stellenbosch,
married Pieter van Zijl

Death of Arij van Wijk In his will, dated 13th April 1713, he is desribed as 'sick, confined to bed'. One can speculate that in this year of Smallpox epidemic that this is what he was suffering from - certainly he died in the same year and was buried at Stellenbosch.

After his death, Cornelia Helmes married for the third time to Jacob Coetser, by whom she had two more children. She died between 23rd May and 21st June 1720.

He farmed at Stellenbosch on the farm "Kijkenvallei".

Arij van Wijk was one of the two stamvaders of the Van Wijk family who arrived at the Cape in the 17th Century. The other was Willem van Wijk. It seems likely that they were related to one another but how is not yet apparent.

The earliest mention of Arij at the Cape is from 1693 to 1695 when he and his wife, Cornelia Helmes, are found living in the Cape Town area on a farm which carried 4000 vines. By 1696 they had moved to Stellenbosch where they lived for the rest of his life. By 1700 they had 10,000 vines.

His Origins and Parentage In his will dated 29th April 1713, he stated that he was 45 years old and that he had been born in Amsterdam. According to the indexes in the Amsterdam Archives, there were two Adrian van Wijks baptised at this period, but the following would seem to be his baptism:

Adrian, baptised Nieuwe Kerk 18 January 1668
parents: Roelof Adriaensz van Wijk and Trijntje Jans
witnesses: Hendrik Coenraetsz van der Meijde
and Aaltje Adriaens van Wijk

since Roelof van Wijk and Trijntje Jans had been living at the Cape since at least 1686. Presumably he had come to the Cape with his parents.

In his will, dated 1713, he is described as having been born in Amsterdam and being 45 years old. In the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam is recorded the baptism of 'Adrian, son of Roelof Adriaensz van Wijk and Trijntje Jans, 18th January 1668. (Amsterdam information kindly supplied by Bob Kernkamp). Since Roelof van Wijk and Trijntje Jans also lived at the Cape, I think we can safely assume that this baptism is his.

Also in his will he is desribed as 'sick, confined to bed'. One can speculate that in this year of Smallpox plague that this is what he was suffering from - certainly he died in the same year.

His Marriage He Married Cornelia Helmes, the widow of Jan van den Bosch. The date is not known but, on 22nd October 1693 a note in the Orphan Chamber records states that she was then intending to remarry, so this is probably the approximate date. She had three children from her first marriage: Catharina, Johannes and Johanna van den Bosch.

According to her will, dated 29th April 1713, she was then 37 years old and had been born at the Cape.

Their Children

b1. Roelof van Wijk, baptized 5 September 1694, Cape Town,
married Aletta Bezuijdenhout.
He died circa July 1746, leaving 8 children.

b2. Aletta van Wijk baptized 15 July 1696, Cape Town,
married Johann Kraaij

b3. Willem van Wijk, baptized 19 January 1698, Stellenbosch
When he died around 1771 he left no wife or children and his
estate was distributed among his brothers and sisters.

b4. Sara van Wijk, baptized 29 November 1699, Stellenbosch,
married Isaak d'Algue, later known as Johannes Dreyer.

b5. Adrianus van Wijk, baptized 25 December 1701, Stellenbosch
He presumably died before 1705 when his younger brother, also
named Adriaan, must have been born according to his age (8) and
position as given in his parent's will of 1713.

b6. Maria van Wijk born circa 1704,
married firstly Jan Joubert and secondly Wolraad Striegel

b7. Adriaan van Wijk, born circa 1705,
married Sara Fourie, and left 11 children.

b8. Gerrit van Wijk, baptized 14 December 1707, Stellenbosch,
most probably buried before 12 August 1708, Stellenbosch

He was not mentioned in his parent's will of 1713, so had
presumably died before that date.

b9. Catarina van Wijk, baptized 20 July 1710, Stellenbosch,
married Hendrik Lubbe

b10. Hester van Wijk, baptized 3 October 1712, Stellenbosch,
married Pieter van Zijl

Death of Arij van Wijk In his will, dated 13th April 1713, he is desribed as 'sick, confined to bed'. One can speculate that in this year of Smallpox epidemic that this is what he was suffering from - certainly he died in the same year and was buried at Stellenbosch.

After his death, Cornelia Helmes married for the third time to Jacob Coetser, by whom she had two more children. She died between 23rd May and 21st June 1720.

17 "Joubertsdal" - Deur Ellie Loubser (nee Joubert)

As kind het ek baie saam met my pa, Frikkie (Grote) Joubert rondgeloop. Die inligting waaroor ek beskik het hy maar so mettertyd vir my vertel. Sy oupa was Gideon Francois Joubert en sy ouma Elsje Sophia van Eeden.

Oupa Gideon is baie jonk oorlede terwyl sy vrou hulle vierde kind, ons oupa Jacobus Petrus Willem, verwag het. Omdat Oupa (Jacobus Petrus Willem) sonder n pa grootgeword het, is min van hom bekend.

Oupa se ma (Elsje Sophia) is later weer getroud met n Steyn, natuurlik in gemeenskap van goedere. Hy staan borg vir sy broer met haar geld, di gaan bankrot en Ouma verloor toe haar grond. Hy is oorlede en Ouma bly agter, arm en met vier klein seuntjies. Sy het toe geen heenkome nie. Sy stap met haar kinders en gaan woon rens langs die Brerivier, waar Bruintjiesrivier in Brerivier inloop, in n klein huisie. Waarvan hulle geleef het, is onbekend. Soos haar seuns mondig geword het, het die Barry-broers, bekende prokureurs op Swellendam, hulle geld by die weesheer gekry, natuurlik teen n groot kommissie. Toe Oupa (Jacobus Petrus Willem), die jongste, se beurt kom, besluit hy om n perd, esel en kar te leen en sy geld self in die Kaap te gaan haal. Hy was verbaas hoeveel geld hy meer as sy broers gekry het, natuurlik sonder die Barrys se kommissie.

Oupa is later getroud met ons ouma, Elsje Maria Dedrika Linde en hulle het saam met sy ma (Elsje Sophia) in Bruintjiesrivier gaan woon. Sy ma was nooit van Oupa geskei nie en sy het tot haar dood toe by hom gebly. Oupa besluit toe om sy pa (Gideon Francois) se grond terug te koop. Ondertussen het die plaas verskeie eienaars gehad, want almal het daar bankrot gegaan en die huis en die plaas was in n verwaarloosde toestand. Ouma se ma (Elsje Sophia) het onthou hoe sy op die huis se fondamente gespeel het toe haar pa, ene Van Eeden, die huis gebou het. Ons het die datum op 1793 uitgewerk.

Die steenoonde is ook later oopgeploeg. Oupa vernoem toe die plaas, wat as Bruintjiesrivier bekend was, na Joubertsdal. Die rivier het sy oorsprong op Joubertsdal gehad, die deel waar oom Dirk gewoon het. Hy het sy plaas Waterval genoem, na die mooi waterval wat die oorsprong van die rivier is. Die baken staan vandag nog op die ho bergspits voor die huis.

Die oorspronklike huis op die plaas was naby die ou stoor en is in 1922 afgebreek. Ek onthou die murasie en wie almal daar gewoon het, sal ek graag wil weet. Oral op die plaas het mense gewoon wat nie grond gehad het nie, vandaar al die murasies. Hulle het tuin gemaak en verskeie vrugtebome het ons dus op onmoontlike plekke aangetref. Pappa se suster, Aunt Sophie en haar man het, nadat hulle getroud is, tydelik in die ou huis gewoon. In daardie huis was ook n donker vertrekkie waarin die slawe wat verbrou het, opgesluit was. Die deur van di vertrek is later in oom Hans se spens ingebou op Bakovenshoogte. Laasgenoemde was nie deel van Joubertsdal nie en is aangekoop deur ons oupa. Sy drie seuns op Joubertsdal se plase was ongeveer 550 morge groot. Nog n deel van die plaas het na sy dogter Sophie gegaan.

Oom Koos se huis se boukoste was ses honderd pond en oom Dirk sn n duisend pond. Pappa moes later meer vir sy grond betaal, omdat hy die opstal en die buitegeboue gekry het.

Water was maar altyd n kwessie, want geen behoorlike voorsiening is vir opgaargeriewe gemaak nie. Vroer jare moes al die water vir huisgebruik met emmers uit die rivier aangedra word. In 1933, die depressiejare, het die regering n dambouprojek begin om werk vir die armblankes te skep. Met graaf en pik teen vyf sjielings per dag en die voorman teen sewe sjielings per dag het hulle die damme op die plaas gemaak. Geen masjiene was beskikbaar nie. n Tydrowende harde werk wat maande geneem het om n behoorlike dam te maak.

Om Joubertsdal te bekom, moes oupa Koos togte Vrystaat toe ry om geld te verdien. Met sy ossewa het die togte drie maande geneem. Ouma was n vrou met n sterk persoonlikheid en moes dan alleen agterbly en na die boerdery omsien. So is die plaas stuksgewys teruggekoop.

As gevolg van die stadige en ongerieflike verkeer en gebrek aan oornagplekke het talle mense snags op Joubertsdal kom huisvesting soek. Pappa onthou hoe hy as kind baie oggende op n baadjie op die vloer wakker geword het. In die nag is al sy beddegoed vir die moe reisigers gebruik.

Motors was slegs vir ver afstande gebruik en almal wat nie na Middelrivierskool toe kon stap nie, het per perdekar (trap) gery. Die paaie was veilig en niemand is ooit aangerand en vermoor nie.

Ek onthou hoe die vliegtuie se roete vanaf Kaapstad na Port Elizabeth al langs die Langeberg was en hoe ons ons verwonder het oor die vliegtuie wat oor ons koppe gevlieg het.

Op Joubertsdal was luiperds (ons het gepraat van tiere) n groot gevaar. Verskeie skape is in die bergveld doodgebyt tot groot verliese vir die boere. Oom Hans op Bakovenshoogte was vindingryk en het n baie doeltreffende vanghok gemaak en verskeie luiperds gevang.

Pappa onthou dat in sy kinderjare n boerekommando na die een of ander oorlog op pad was en Ouma het vir hulle ontbyt gegee. Na die oorlog het die kommandant uit dankbaarheid vir ouma Ellie n geelhout-spenskas present gegee. Dit het in Joubertsdal se spens gebly tot 1961 toe Pappa die plaas verkoop het. Hy het dit toe aan die museum op Swellendam geskenk.

Die ou stoor op die plaas was eers n woonhuis met baie pakkamers. Die een vertrek, sonder venster en met n grondvloer, was die skoolkamer. Oupa het van tyd tot tyd iemand gehuur om die kinders te leer. As die onderwyser dros, was die kinders soms lank sonder skool en het intussen alles verleer. So onbevredigend was dit dat Oupa en van die ander boere besluit het om die skool in Middelrivier te laat bou. Elkeen het maar iets bygedra en so was Pappa-hulle die eerste leerlinge van die nuwe skool. Later was daar tot drie personeellede.

Onder die ou stoor was n groot turksvyboord wat n groot aantrekkingskrag vir baie gehad het. Na die cochinele dit getakel het, het dit tot niet gegaan. Verskeie mure en krale wat van klei gemaak is, was op die plaas. Dit was oorblyfsels van vorige bewoners.

Oupa Koos was in n stadium parlementslid vir Swellendam. Hy het niks daarvan gehou nie, want hy kon nie die geflankeerdery van die mans met die ander se vrouens verdra nie. Hy was n streng godsdienstige mens. Dit was ook in di tyd toe Cecil John Rhodes en Merriman in die parlement was. Pappa het vertel dat hy hulle dikwels gesien het. Ek wonder hoeveel die boere van die Engelse toesprake verstaan het.

Aangesien geld so skaars was, moes Pappa, so groot, en oom Dirk, so klein, saam hulle beste klere dra. Pappa se voete is met vet gesmeer om in die klein skoene te kom, maar sonder sukses. Ouma s maar net die skoene is nog gaaf en goed. Waar het die moue en broekspype nie gesit nie?

Oupa het in 1918, toe Pappa en Mamma getroud is, Swellendam toe getrek. Sy huis was waar die Kop se geboue vandag staan. Ouma is in 1923 oorlede en Oupa op 91-jarige leeftyd in 1935. Toe hy die plaas aan die seuns verkoop het, het hy ges hulle moet dit geniet. Daarom vra hy vir hulle dieselfde prys as wat hy daarvoor betaal het. Hy het ges hy kon dit nooit geniet nie, want hy het te swaar gekry.

Volgens vandag se standaarde het ons primitief geleef. Ons het geen moderne geriewe geken nie. Elektrisiteit was nie beskikbaar nie, telefone het later jare gekom en motors ook maar later. Pappa het sy eerste motor, n Studebaker Semi Sedan, teen 395 pond in 1926 gekoop en die broers hulle sn later. Niemand was goeie bestuurders nie omdat hulle so laat in hulle lewe motors bekom het en was redelik gevaarlik op die pad. Oral was grondpaaie en almal het met perdekarre oor die weg gekom. n Kapkar met twee mooi perde was gesog. Na Pappa se eerste trekker, die derde in Swellendam se distrik, het die mense gestroom om die wonderwerk te beskou. Ons drie susters het di Saterdag ons pennie se sakgeld verbeur vir di groot aankoop!

Alle vervoer van goedere het met eselwaens en die trein geskied. Gedurende die depressiejare in 1933 het landbouprodukte geen prys behaal nie as gevolg van die armblankevraagstuk. In 1939 tot 1945 het die oorlog uitgebreek en dit was n verdere terugslag. Min was beskikbaar soos byvoorbeeld seep, meelblom, suiker, breekware en klerasie was baie moeilik bekombaar. Boonop is petrol gerantsoeneer. Vir 200 myl se petrol per maand moes koepons by die magistraatskantoor gekry word. Sonder koepons kon jy nrens petrol kry nie. Weer word perdekarre gebruik. Op Joubertsdal is met graan, lemoene en skape geboer.

Oupa JPW Joubert is in 1844 gebore en sy drie broers was Gideon, wat in Barrydale gaan woon het, Jan in die Vrystaat en Frikkie in Montagu. Oupa se kinders was die volgende:
1. Ellen is getroud met Ben Viljoen van Robertson, maar vertrek Vrystaat toe.
2. Gideon is getroud met Rosa van Eeden - Middelrivier.
3. Koos is getroud met Cora van Eeden - Middelrivier.
4. Barbara is getroud met Pieter van Eeden - Nooitgedacht.
5. Miemie is getroud met Fanie Kriel - Montagu.
6. Hans is getroud met Elizabeth Steyn - Leeurivier.
7. Dirk is getroud met Daisy Bosman - Wellington.
8. Frikkie is getroud met Bettie Badenhorst - Swellendam.

Oupa Koos was n merkwaardige persoon. As in aanmerking geneem word met watter agterstand hy begin het en wat hy vermag het, is hy te bewonder. Hy was n vredeliewende en baie hoflike man. Hy het altyd ander as u aangespreek. Ongelukkig was sy verstand as gevolg van verkalkte are al baie swak toe ek hom in sy ho ouderdom leer ken het. Hy was jare in die kerkraad en daar is mooi fotos in die konsistorie op Swellendam van hom as kerkraadslid. Hy was n oupa op wie n mens kon trots wees en dis n voorreg om n afstammeling van hom te wees.

Pappa het Joubertsdal in 1961 aan oom Attie van Eeden verkoop. Daarna is dit weer verkoop en nou behoort dit aan Duitsers wat direk uit Duitsland gekom het. In 1993 het hulle die huis se 200-jarige bestaan gevier en ek en my susters is ook genooi, omdat ons die laaste Jouberts was wat in die huis gewoon het.

Pappa het vertel dat brandhout baie skaars was en toe koop hy by meneer Tolmie n pakkie Black Wattle-saad teen ses pennies - van Natal afkomstig. Dit plant hy al langs die rivier. Ek onthou die reuse bome en hoe bome se saad versprei het en vervuil het in die rivier. Oorkant die rivier was n bamboesbos en n rietbos. Van die bamboes is lere gemaak. Oral op die plaas was swartolienhoutbosse - die wilde olyf. Daarvan is die sporte vir die lere gemaak. Geen gekoopte lere het ons geken nie.

Van tyd tot tyd het n kleurling op die plaas aangestap gekom om die tuie heel te maak. Hy sit dan vir n paar dae in die waenhuis met al die stukkende tuie. Die twee stukke leer word dan met n spesiale klamp vasgehou en die tou waarmee hy werk, word styf gespan en met pik gesmeer om n swart sterk gare te vorm. Dan word die tuig met die gare en twee naalde heelgemaak. Die een naald word bo ingesteek en die ander een van onder af.

Verder het daar ook soms een gekom wat soldeerwerk doen. Alle stukkende sinkbaddens en kastrolle maak hy heel en ore word aangesit aan Lyles-gouestroopblikke om gerieflike skepbekers te maak.

Daar was geen spuitmasjiene nie en vir die lemoenbome was reuse seile - soos tente - deur die tuiemakers gemaak. Die reuse seile word oor die bome getrek, onder op die grond dig toegemaak en n spesiale apparaat se tuit word onder ingesteek. Daarin word n koekie gegooi wat sianied bevat, die slinger word gedraai en die giftige gas word onder die boom ingeblaas. Dit moes saans gebeur want die gas het brand aan die bome veroorsaak as die son daarop skyn. Dit was gebruik teen skaal wat op die lemoenbome gevorm het. Elke boer het sy eie gradeerder gehad en self sy lemoene gepak, wat dan per wa na Drew-stasie vervoer is en daarvandaan na die agente in die Kaap wat dit weer na die oorseese mark gestuur het.

Die groot geleentheid in die jaar was oestyd wat maar soms met groot teenspoed en verliese gepaard gegaan het. Na die graan afgesny is met die snymasjien wat vroer jare deur perde getrek is, was baie gerwe los en moes dan eers vasgebind word voor dit in hope gepak is. Baie hande-arbeid was nodig. Elke gerf word op n wa gelaai en na n plek geneem waar n mied gepak word. Dit is n groot kuns om n goeie mied te pak wat nie van binne sal nat word as dit ren nie. Dan kom die groot wag vir die dorsmasjien. Jy moes maar jou beurt afgewag het tot die eienaar van die masjien by jou kan uitkom. Soos die masjien vorder, sluit werkloses by die proses aan en moet daar sekuur getel word vir hoeveel jy moet kos voorsien. Voor die tyd word n bees geslag. Geen koelkaste het ons geken nie. Die vleis word dan in pekelbalies gepak en elke dag word van die stukke vleis in die groot potte buite gaargemaak.

Spesiale eetgerei wat na oestyd weggepak word, word van die solder afgehaal en massas kos word elke dag gekook en na die masjien geneem. Dik snye brood en boontjiesop en stampmielies was die aandkos. Elke sak graan wat geweeg en toegewerk is, word sorgvuldig getel want dit bepaal jou inkomste vir die jaar.

Ek wonder wat die moderne boer sou s as hy sou sien hoe swaar sy voorouers moes werk om hulle geld te verdien. Ons het baie tespoed, droogte, te veel ren in oestyd en swak pryse geken. Ons het geen koelkaste, vrieskaste, elektriese stowe, wasmasjiene, warmwatertoestelle en elektriese pompe en ligte geken nie.

Later was geringe geriewe slegs in die dorpe beskikbaar wat kragstasies gehad het. Meestal was dit maar elektriese ligte. n Groot gerief wat ons later jare geken het, was die tuisgemaakte cooler. n Ronde sementvloer word gegooi en slepers wat deur die spoorwe uitgegooi is, word in die rondte op die vloer op hulle koppenente staangemaak - ongeveer een meter uitmekaar. Dit word aan die binnekant met sifdraad uitgevoer en aan die buitekant oorgetrek met die sif. Die spasies tussen die slepers word dan opgevul met uitgebrande steenkool - ook van die spoorwe - op stukkies baksteen. Bo-op word n ronde sinkbak gesit. Rondom die bak was n rand van n paar sentimeter hoog. Gaatjies word in die rondte bokant die bakstene gemaak. Water word in die bak gegooi en drup stadig op die bakstene. As dit goed nat is, word stokkies in die gaatjies gesteek. Heerlik koel om vleis, melk, room en botter in te bre.

Oom Dirk het baie lemoenboorde gehad wat tot onder die berg gestrek het. Omdat hy baie probleme en skade deur die bobbejane gehad het, het hy besluit om lemmetjieboorde naaste aan die berg te plant. Of die suur lemmetjies die bobbejane afgeskrik het, weet ek nie.

Ons het ons verwonder aan die gasligte (Gloria Lights) wat oom Koos in sy hele huis aangel het. n Groot luukse en groot gerief.

In Oupa se huis op Swellendam was n wit marmerkaggel. Toe Oupa oorlede is, het Lukas Odendaal die huis gekoop, dit gesloop en die kaggel in sy kafee ingebou. Later het die Kop die kafee oorgeneem en vir n winkel gebruik. Ek het in 1969 by die direksie aansoek gedoen om die kaggel te koop. Dis aan my toeges en ons het dit daar gaan uitbreek en in ons huis in Goree, Robertson gaan inbou waar dit nou nog is. Ek het R50 vir die kaggel betaal.

Ons geslag het ons geleidelik by die moderne lewe aangepas. Die huidige geslag sal seker verstaan as ons en hulle oor baie dinge verskil. Aanvaar ons maar as julle dink ons is dom as ons nie alles verstaan nie. Ons het ook ons kant in die lewe gebring en die land help opbou.

Ons het sonder geriewe en vermaak grootgeword, maar het mooi herinneringe aan n gerieflike en veilige lewe.

Ek hoop die familie sal iets wys raak uit di vertelling.
