This page concerns itself with the districts where residents of the Dutch Cape Colony were born, lived and died. The Dutch Cape Colony (Dutch: Kaapkolonie) was a Dutch East India Company colony in Southern Africa, centered on the Cape of Good Hope, whence it derived its name.

This page lists the several districts to which profiles may be categorised within the Dutch Cape Colony that existed in the area known as the Cape of Good Hope (pre 1807), when the Dutch East India Company colony was first settled. Please see South African Country Naming for guidance on category usage. Briefly, categorisation is by District and these districts and towns should be named in the format [[Category:<district>, Dutch Cape Colony]]. [1] This naming format eliminates duplication.

The following broad place name categories are now open for categorisation:

Hi Andrew,

You deleted a category that remains on this page, so it needs to be deleted here as well. Category: Malmsbury District, Dutch Cape Colony

Thanks, Natalie
