BEKKER Hendrik was a tansport rider and by 1890 he was well acquainted with the roads to the North and had contacts in Fort Salisbury. His wife accompanied him on all his trips. In 1891 while in Salisbury lung sickness killed most of his cattle and he started a timber cutting and sawing business on the Hunyani river. With two hundred pounds from the proceeds he bought a wagon and team of oxen. He accepted an offer of a free farm by Rhodes and having for some time, had a desire to settle in a particular area he pegged the farm of his choice. There was a prominent lone camelthorn tree and he called his farm Enkeldoorn. (Singlethorn)
Before taking up the offer he returned to the Transvaal to persuade some friends to move with him to Mashonaland. Only two families, Kotze and Visagie joined him. Circumstances, particularly Malaria caused them to stay together. They became seriuosly ill and returned to Transvaal to recover.
Early in 1893, Bekker and his family were on their way back to Enkeldoorn when, at Fort Victoria they met Mr. Pretorious and his sons who persuaded them to change their plans and instead to try Gazaland. The farm Enkeldoorn was forfeited and some years later taken over bt Hendrik Ferreira.

BEKKER Josef owned Manese Poort farm (1935) and Mansi.
Mrs Bekker and baby Joey were on Sterkstroom when the Mashona attacked the group. (Joey was the baby hidden by a servant girl when the group was attacked.)
Josef and family moved to Umtali leaving Hendrik O'Neill to manage Manzi. Joey inherited the farm and returned to live on and manage the farm till her death. She did not mary.

The five families Jan and Maria, three married sons and Maria's sister Lettie Rinke and her husband Dirk van Rooyen , with children, travelled in a convoy of seven donkey-wagons with Jan Blignaut as leader, they left Vryburg, South Africa for Enkeldoorn in 1922. and settled on their portion of Swartfontein.
On arrival at Swartfontein Maria , tired after the long journey, declared that they had gone far enough, "Dit is vergenoeg" and so, without intending to, named the family farm Vergenoeg.

Oupa and Ouma arrived approximately. 1912 from Kinross, Transvaal, where he farmed on Winkelhaak. In 1910 Oupa, disheartened by droughts and other proplems decided to look for pastures new and a reconnaissance trip to Rhodesia took him to the Enkeldoorn area. He was satisfied and about 26 miles South of the town Enkeldoorn, pegged a vigin farm thet he called Welvaart. To quote from the memoirs of a descendent "A large pleasant farm with vales and streams and waving grasslands. Also Jackals, Wilddogs and Leopards and Black people wearing clothes of skins and armed with assegais, axes and knobkieries." There were no clearly defined farm bounderies.
Back at home he organised his move, by train, to Rhodesia. His family, wife, two sons and twin daughters and livestock being, one thousand and one hundred sheep, twelve horses, poultry and three cats. A tented wagon and cart, a full range of farm implements and provisions for the long journey.
At Bulawayo the rail wagons carrying the trek were split between two trains with the family travelling on the first train. One son 14 year old Willem, got seperated from the family causing his parents serious concern while he made himself comfortable on his father's tented wagon with its feather bed and stored food, which was loaded on the second train.
After two days the trains arrived at Umvuma and the trek to Velvaart started with Ouma dreading the near future. She had heard of spiders as large as field mice, snakes beyond number on trees and a multitude of biting insects.
On arrival at Velvaart tents were erected. Ouma insisted, not in the lovely shade of large trees with their rat sized spiders and snakes., but in the blistering sun on the banks of the stream. An antheap was hollowed out for baking and cooking facilities were erected.
Living in the tents for the next six months was not a pleasant experience. A house had to be built, outbuildings, stables and stock pens. The nights were filled with the mornfull cries of Jackals
The homestead was built of granite blocks cut to shape on the farm. The builder was Oom Alec Heyns.
The sheep were constantly attacked by hungry wild-dogs that had to be chased way. Sharp grass seeds got tangled in the wool piercing the skins. Bluetongue and other diseases caused heavy losses and wagon loads of carcases had to be moved away and burried. Little more than one hundred survived. Inspite of devoted care, horses died of the dreaded horsesickness with only a few surviving.
The bautiful cattle did well, grazing was good but the cattle had to be herded and kraaled for the night. Leopards were a pest and the occasional lion was not unknown. Manure from the kraal was a good fertiliser for maize and wheat. Oupa had brought sufficient capital, as coins, with him to cary him through the developing years. He kept his money in bags in a strong, securely locked box in a corner of the front room. There were several Kruger-pound gold coins. He was a quiet man with strong religious beliefs and evening home services were the routine. Children were then expected to repeat parts of the lesson. Sundays were celebrated by special attention to details. Ouma was dressed in five or six peticoats decorated with bands of fancy lace and corsets and sitting very upright, complained of the discomfort. Daughters were dressed in their Sunday best and had ribbons in their hair. Oupa and teacher wore clean white shirts with high starched collars and ties and jackets. At 10:30 the Sunday morning service started. . After the service the men would remove their jackets and with general conversation pass the time till the midday meal. On sundays there was special attention to the laying of the table with a starched damask table-cloth and serviets and wine glasses. Sunday was also visiting day among friends and family with guests arriving in time to share the service and the midday meal. After the meal the atmosphere among the adults was more relaxed, with the children banned from their presence.
A visit to town was always a memorable occasion. Ouma, dressed as for Sundays with in addition, hat gloves and handbag, not to forget the lovely odour of the "Oliekolonie' soaked hanky. The day started at dawn, with the four hour drive to town and another four hours return with the hooded-cart and horses being accepted as part of life. In the event of rain, side shields were used. Homesteads along the road were stopping places for a chat with friends, a refreshing beaker coffee and should the friends be ready for a meal the invitation to join them , as was the custom in those days, was automatically accepted. In town Levines store was the main attraction and the parmanently
fixed box on the cart would be packed to the full with provisions to last till the
next trip.

BROCHLEHURST Peter Orme 5-9-1886 / ?-4-1977 x (July 1917) Marie Johnson nee Guillonard, widow of Percy Johnson who was killed in action at Gallipolle Peter grew up on the farm "The Spinney" near Belvoir Castle, South of London. He was educated at Eton. He served in the first World War as an officer and cavalry instructor. He enjoyed travelling and after deciding to settle in the Tropics he came to Rhodesia. He farmed for a while on Chaka, Fort Victoria, then bought a number of farms totalling over 30 000 acres South of Enkeldoorn, which he named collectively, Belvoir Spinney. In the late 1960 s he decided to reduce his holdings but kept 22 000 acres as Belvoir Spinney.
His farming activities included cattle, horses, grain crops, sheep and pigs. With a manager, he also produced tobacco on Chigaro. He was keen on irrigation but his personal preference was Livestock. In addition to ranching, he had Stud herds of various breeds but at the end his favourite Herefords, was the only breed. He imported Herefords from the United Kingdom but also bought from Colonal Heyderman who introduced the polled Hereford to this country. When Peter died his Poll Hereford herd was the oldest registered Poll Hereford herd in Southern Africa. He firmly believed that, no matter what the breed is, "If you treat your animals well, they will treat you well". After experimenting with various breeds for ranching, he settled for a cross of the Hereford and Afrikander breeds. He was a noted horse trainer and loved his horses. An outstanding horseman, fond of showing his excellent horses and riding skills. He took part in Gymkhana events and his visits to town, with companions, on horseback were occsions for making a show that was appreciated by onlookers. Latterly, his favourite horse was known as almost impossible to control, yet, under him, behaved perfectly.
Peter was a big man, robust, with a strong voice, energetic and dominant by nature. A natural leader with a keen sense of humour called "Mahleka" meaning "He who laughs" by his workers, a name by which he became known in the area.. He was a socialite, took part in all social activities and was popular, particularly with the ladies The local community organised a once a year, week-long outing at Orions Drift on the Sebakwe river, where he was accepted as the leading personality.
Peter Brocklehurst was reputed to be a wealthy man and known for his open purse. Persons in temporary need were readily assisted with the over-riding condition that repayment on due date was expected. In the business world he was known as a man of his word and accounts were never allowed to become overdue. He was at all times a hard worker and also played hard, never a drinker but regularly enjoyed a beer as being both refreshing and nutricious.
Marie Brocklehurst was a quiet, sophisticated lady, admired and liked by all who knew her, always well dressed and well spoken in a French accent, to the end. She was fluent in French and used to read French literature. Marie and Peter had no children but Marie's one Grandson, David, changed his name from Johnson to Brocklehurst and was thereafter known as David Brocklehurst. Marie died in 1959, was cremated and the ashes scattered on Belvoir Spinney.
At a public meeting held on 18-4-1973, the "Peter Brocklehurst Foundation" was established and a "Home for the Aged" was built. This was made possible by an extremely generous donation of 40 000 Dollars received for the purpose, from Peter Brocklehurst. The donation was followed by futher equally generous donations.
In April 1977, a few months short of his 91st. birthday, Peter was walking on the pavement in Salisbury when he colapsed and died from a heart attack. He was cremated and the ashes scattered on Belvoir Spinney.
David x Susanna Benade 11-2-51 David was born Johnson, the grandson
of Marie Brocklehurst, He changed his name to Brocklehurst and farmed on Belvoir Spinney after his Step-grandfather Peter Brocklehurst died. He served for many years on the Peter Brocklehurst Foundation, Management Committee. He was an active member of the local Gymkhana Club. They left the area.

Alexander Kenneth known as Ken and his brother Donald were born in South Africa and grew up with their parents moving from lace to place following diamond and gold ventures. The family arrived in Rhodesia via Beit Bridge.
Ken was trained and worked as a carpenter but later took to building contracting. During World War 2 he joined the army but was kept in Rhodesia doing building work for the entire war. He was a keen rugby player till he injured a knee and sufferd with a crooked and painful kee for the rest of his life.
Myra was born in Knysna, South Africa. She trained as a nurse and won the Provincial Gold Medal for her general training. She did Maternity training at the Provincial hospital, Cape Town and also did infectious diseases in the Cape. One of Myra's friends as a student nurse, was from Rhodesia where she was going out with Ken. He went to visit her but she developed measles and asked Myra to show him around till she recovered. Once he met Myra he lost interest in his former sweetheart and he and Myra married a year later
They spent the first years of their marriage moving about the country as he built in various towns. In Enkeldoorn he built among others, the old Maternity Home, the Post Office, the Magistrate's Court, the school hostels, the flats at the Police Compound , the Town Hall and the Peter Brocklehurst Foundation buildings which he did at cost, thereby making a substantial donation to the Foundation.
Myra started helping at the Maternity Home while staying at the Hotel. and spent the rest of her life helping people in the community. She had a strong religious belief which was not tied to any one church, she was a member of all churches and helped quite indiscriminately without regard to colour or creed. She taught Sunday school for many years and was known as Granny Campbell to all children. She visited all the elderly in Enkeldoorn and in particular for as long as her strength permitted, served as selector and adored councillor to the inmates at Brocklehurst Foundation.
They decided to buy a farm in the area but sold it when they bought a property from Mr. Peter Broaklehurst on which Ken built a house. They moved to the farm when their sons went to boarding school. Ken was not a farmer by temperament but bought some cattle and planted some tobacco till his son Keith took over. He continued with his building until he had a stroke which incapacitated him and affected his speech, after that he did not feel at ease in company and kept very much to his family.
Brian Alexander trained as an agronomist and worked in the Government Laboratory then after doing his Phd started his own advisory business. He is part owner of Witham Estates but has always lived in Harare.
Keith went to Avondale Junior school then Prince Edward and then Cedara Agricultural College He was Captain of rugby at both Prince Edward and Cedara. He did Terrotorial training and then drafted, started as private and ended up as Major and acting Colonel. He became a full time farmer at Enkeldoorn where he was Chairman of the ICA (Intensive Conservation Area) for many years. During the same period he was also chairman of the Enkeldoorn Social Club and vice Chair of the Farmers Association. He represented Enkeldoorn at rugby and as he grew older took to Polocrosse where he represented Zimbabwe in the Veterans section.
Jenny went to school at Leicester Road Junior school and Jeppe High, both in Johannesburg. She trained as a nurse at Greys Hospital, Pietermaritzburg, where she met Keith while he was at Cedara, She was chairman of the student nurses body. She did Midwifery at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Johannesburg. She spent a year in the U.K. and Europe and worked in Johannesburg before marrying
Keith. She worked at the Enkeldoorn Hospital and then ran family planning and
well baby clinic inoculation for eight or nine years.

Matie was known for his great strength and sense of humour with a love for practical jokes, he was also easily moved to tears when sad or happy.
As a Boer Prisoner of War on Hawkins island, part of the Bermuda group, a collegue later told of his escapades of which are recounted, whenever there was a change of guard personnel he would, with their first roll-call parade, on the command "Fall In" run to the nearest point of the see and with gusto fall into the sea, then solemnly declare that he was merely obeying a command. The camp punishment centre was a barbed wire enclosure on the island and Matie had the reputation of being its mosrt frequent inmate, invariably following a prank that discomfited the authorities.
Matie was an excellent horseman and known to be fearless and often swam in flooded rivers. He refused to bath indoors, doing his ablutions in the nearest river and as he got older he would have a servant squirt water from a hosepipe over him.

Francis John Eagar of Irish ancestry and 1820 settlers, was born in the district Hoopstad in the then republic of Orange Free State. Still short of his sixteenth birthday he joined his father and older brother on commando to fight for his country against the invading British. He was one of the approximately 5 000 Boers who felt themselves betrayed when General Cronje surrendered his entire force to the British without even a pretence of resistance, considered by many as the one shameful act by a Boer Commander during the three year war. They spent the rest of the war in a P.O.W. camp in Ceylon.
Back in South Africa, Francis resumed his studies and qualified as a school teacher. His first school was in 1908, a private school along Leeurivier, he boarded with Oom Faan Swanepoel. His experiences at various schools make extremely interesting and frequently, amusing reading but is not a part of the Enkeldoorn history.
Francis gave up teaching to become a farmer but misfortune caused him to decide to move to the wilds of Northern Rhodesia with a load of grain to trade. There followed a life so full with notable experiences, including wild animals and bouts of malaria, that it begs to be told.
November 1913 he met up with Rev. Smuts from Bulawayo who was visiting members of his congregation, resident in Northern Rhodesia. By that time Francis had had enough of adventure in the wilds and accepted an offer to negotiate for a teaching post in Southern Rhodesia. He promptly left for the Free State and a visit with his parents. On 7 January 1914 he married Elizabeth Christina Erasmus.
He was offered a teaching post on the farm Mooilaagte in the Charter district. Travelling first class at the Rhodesian Government's expense he arrived at Umvuma. From there to Enkeldoorn with the Zeederberg mule coach. The Sebakwe river was high and when crossing a crocodile attached one of the mules which died on reaching dry ground.
At Enkeldoorn he was not expected and there was nobody to meet him. Mr Bezuidenhout, owner of Mooilaagte, arrived on horseback. A Mr. A. Hoffman who was going courting in the same direction, made his horse available for part of the way and borrowing a cart from Rev. Liebenberg the trio set off. At Mr. Hoffman's destination they had to borrow another horse and it was two days after arriving at Enkeldoorn, before he arrived at his new school, with classes due to start the next morning.
The school inspectors travelled by mule-drawn coaches equipped as a caravan and on arrival at a school would visit overnight, followed by the inspection the next day and another stop-over before continuing to the next school. Out of school, time was taken up by visiting and a hunt in the afternoon was normal practice.On one occasion, intent on looking for game the inspector failed to see a mud filled hole and he fell in. Back at the house, which was as general in those days, without a specific bathroom, Mrs. Eager heated water and prepared a bath under a tree secluded by hessien. Bathed and dressed in dry clothes, the inspector, thanking the lady commented that he had never before so enjoyed a bath.
Many out of class experiences warrant repeating. Francis claimed that baboons can count and by experimenting satisfied himself that the animals could count to three. The baboons were a pest in the ripening mealies. Accompanied by the Bezuidenhout father and son, they entered the land and then only two left. For as long as the third member stayed hidden in the land the baboons in the nearby hill did not approach the mealies. With four people entering and three leaving the baboons entered without hesitation. They experimented with a scarecrow made up to appear human, complete with a hat, it was partly carried into the land by two people, they left with the scarecrow hidden in the land. For several days the baboons stayed in the hills, then went in and finding the scarecrow, removed the hat.
Boarding was a problem and the Eagars decided to have their own house. During the school holidays, with the help of neighbours he built a pole and dagga house with thatched roof. They bought an iron bed with a choir mattress and two chairs, all the other furniture had to be made from box planks and bush timber.
Milk was bought at six pennies a bottle, this was considered too costly and Francis bought a cow at a price that was more than a month's salary. He later bought a second cow and they enjoyed home made butter.
The year 1914 was exceptionally wet with persistent rains and the Umniaty river constantly in flood. There were no bridges and because of the crocodiles, attempting to swim was out of the question. Everybody soon ran out of groceries. The Eagars bought wheat from a nearby farmer and had it ground by Oom Willie Steyn who owned an ox-powered mill. It took two days for Francis and a friend to fetch, convey and mill two small bags of wheat, walking, as the road was too wet for normal travel. Sugar was not a problem as they regularly robbed hives for honey. Most farmers had small hand operated grinders and grinding mealies was not a serious problem. They survived.
Travel by wagon became impossible as the wheels sank into the sodden earth and when unavoidable the body of a wagon was placed on poles that served as skid pads.
In those early days, general transport was a slow process. Horse-sickness killed many animals and even mules were not immune to the insect borne disease . The few that survived, said to be salted, were out of reach of most people and the normal was a donkey-drawn cart and on occasion oxen were used. Francis placed on record his admiration for the donkey. Throughout the early days the donkey was the main draught animal, it was immune to horse-sickness and also rinderpest. The Eagars used a donkey-cart for six years, travelling where-ever they wished to visit including a hundred mile trip. Francis and Wessel de Klerk took a business trip to Salisbury, mainly to buy themselves each a new rifle. In the Beatrice area they became bogged in the mud and for several days managed less than half a mile a day, going from antheap to antheap where they would rest on the comparatively dry ground. That trip took eight days. The accepted price for a donkey, if one became available was thirty pounds.
Shortly after moving to Change Francis was transferred to Iron Mine Hill School, away from the Enkeldoorn area. There was again the need to create a school from scratch but Francis coped and apart from the 1918 hell of the so-called Spanish flue, that killed thousands of people he recorded a contented five years before being transferred back to Enkeldoorn. At Iron Mine Hill he served on the Church Council and also assisted local people with the wording of official documents. The isolation of the area made it impossible for doctors or ministers to be on call when needed and Francis found himself called out to assist with seriously sick people and also to officiate at funerals.
The move to Ngesi was with his own wagon, built by his young brother-in-law Kosie Erasmus, but he had to buy oxen that were untrained and the seller charged him an extra ten shillings per ox for training. Despite mishaps on the road, it was a pleasure to make the move in one, with his own transport instead of being dependant on others and the problem of a split journey, by road then by train and again by road.
The Government had agreed to the establishment of Ngesi Poort school on condition that a substantial building that will permit reasonable conditions for the children, will be built. Francis convened a meeting of parents, in which category he considered himself as his eldest son was a pupil, and found them eager to assist. In the mean time he decided to personally lay the foundations to ensure that the work is properly done, he also insisted on laying the cement floor himself. His purpose was twofold, the parents inexperience and the need to ensure a termite free structure.
Francis was the Ngesi Poort school principle for 18 years, till he retired in 1939. Details of his participation in the building of a new Dutch Reformed Church in 1927 are mentioned in the chapter dealing with the church. At this point it is mentioned that he volunteered and was accepted as secretary of the Building Committee, a responsibility he carried till the final account for building costs was paid thirteen years later.
A noteworthy comment by Francis when he wrote his memoirs "The Long Road" was the comparison of the women of early settler stock and their offspring in which he blamed "Fashion" for many ills experienced by the latter, in particular the high heels on their shoes.
The Eagar family, together with neighbours held regular church services and organised a yearly Bazaar in accordance with church practice. For Nagmaal (Holy communion) they travelled the 32 miles to Enkeldoorn town by tented ox-wagon, stopping over for a night along the route. Such travel by tented ox-wagon was a particular treat for the children
The Flu epidemic of 1932 was not as severe as that of 1918 but both Francis and his wife Elizabeth fell ill as also two of their children. Elizabeth did not recover, she died on 19 October 1932. Francis was admitted to Enkeldoorn Hospital where he was seriously ill for three weeks, when discharged he was too weak to return to work and was absent on sick leave till February the following year.
On his return he found several changes with new pupils, a new matron, Mrs. Maritz and new servants. He found it difficult to adapt to the changed circumstances. His eldest son had left school and was running his section of the farm, the next two were at senior school and the youngest only six years old.
Francis bought Ngesi Poort farm and his brother-in-law Kosie Erasmus who had come with him and Elizabeth, when they first came to Rhodesia, initially farmed on part of Ngesi Poort. See Kosie Erasmus.
With his son Raymond as manager, Francis developed a wheat irrigation project of 35 Hectare where Raymond reaped 92 bags of wheat from one bag seed.
In 1939 Francis retired from teaching and settled on the farm as a full time farmer. His son Raymond moved to town where he established a business as building contractor.
Francis and Kosie together bought Rusfontein, which they subdivided, by paying the owner one hundred pounds and taking over a Landbank bond of one hundred punds that was overdue on rent payments by another one hundred pounds. A Mr. Jordaan grew wheat on the Francis portion which was subsequently bought by Kosie Erasmus thereby owning the full Rusfontein.
In 1936 Francis Eagar remarried, the bride was Miss Hendrina van den Berg. In 1948 their first child, a dughter Fransiska, was born.
During a visit to Daisyfield, where Francis was on the management committee, a five year old orphan Margaret Strydom made friends with Francis and his wife. She was a charming little girl and on returning to Enkeldoorn they aked permission from the Orphanage head to take her along. Thereafter she stayed
with them as their own child, attending school at Daisyfield but staying with them for the hollidays. She married Marthinus Ferreira.
Six months before retiring Francis sold the farm and with his wife moved to the hostel as boarders.
After retiring Francis decided to move nearer town and obtained Doornkasteel, 4 miles to the north of Enkeldoorn on the Salisbury road, on a hire purchase agreement The farm was 1500 morgan and he bought it for 1500 pounds. It was an excellent cattle farm with the animals putting on weight faster and producing more milk than on the previous farm He sold 40 gallons of milk daily till the Taxman cought up with him and being unwilling to work only to be taxed, he reduced his delivery to 20 gallons
Francis took advantage of an opportunity to buy 32 adjoining plots on the town border at a very low price. Town regulations required that he build a house on the ground and his son Raymond, who was a building contractor, built the house. Raymond then proposed to his father that he Raymond take over the management of the farm and that Francis and his family move to town. Francis agreed and the move took place in 1949.
In 1954 Francis and his wife and two daughters left Enkledoorn for South Africa terminating his 40 years of active participation in the affairs of the area. Raymond Eagar and Catharina lived on the farm in their own house till they moved to town.
He took work with a building contractor Goss and qualified as a builder, he later started his own contracting business with among many others, Eagar Buildings, part of the Hotel (with a partner) He bought the Cheese factory along York Street, innitially one large room and converted it to a normal dwelling house. They had two children , Francis John and Betsie.
The family left the area.
Stoffel Eagar (22-4-1917) educated at Liebenberg and Prince Edward schools, joined the civil service, where he worked till world war two when he was called up for military service. A broken ankle during internal manoeuvres caused him to be classed unfit for overseas service and he was transferred to the local armoury where he served till the war ended.
After the war Stoffel returned to the civil service and married Christina Gertruida Schoultz, d.o. Frederick Johan and Issabel (nee Bekker) Schoultz. (22-4-1922) and bought the farm Featherstone while still in employment. He retired from the civil service in 1953 and started full time general, crops and cattle, farming on Featherstone.
In 1974 Stoffel joined the Rural Council as full-time secretary and selling the farm, moved to town He continued to serve as secretary to the various Councils and Town Boards till he retired
Stoffel and Chrissie had two children: Francis John (1944) and Owen Charles (1948)
Francis John was educated in South Africa and did not return to the area. Owen farmed with his parents for a while, then worked as Town Ranger with general responcibilities till he bought Inhoek where he farmed for himself till ne left the area in 1982.

Elizabeth Margaretha Christina ?/19-10-32 x Francis John Eagar 22-12-1882 / 3-9-97 4c
Jacobus Johannes (Kosie) 13-10-1899 / 26-9-65(Brother-in-law of Francis Eagar) came to the Enkeldoorn area in January 1914 as a 15 year old schoolboy, in the care of his sister and Brother-in-law, Francis and Elizabeth Eagar, when Francis accepted a post with the Rhodesian Education Department as school teacher. The first school was on Mooilaagte where Kosie attended school.
The school was moved to Change and shortly afterwards Francis was transferred to Iron Mine Hill. Kosie accompanied his sister and brother -in -law.
Kosie did not want to proceed to senior school and having attained standard seven elected to be a farmer, he was keen to do woodwork and Francis suggested that he build a wagon, Francis bought the necessary metal parts and Kosie made the rest using bush timber. Francis was transferred back to the Enkeldoorn area to take charge of the Ngesi Poort school and the move was made easy, with Kosie's wagon and oxen Francis had acquired.
Kosie continued to live with the Eagars and when Francis bought Ngesi Poort farm, he took charge of the farming, concentrating mainly on growing wheat under irrigation.
He married Henrita Carolina Lamprecht 28-2-07 / 2-6-70.The young couple lived with the Eagars for four years before moving into their own house.
Francis was approached by the owner of Rusfontein asking for advice. He had a Farm-bank loan of one hundred pounds with overdue interest amounting to another hundred pounds which he was unable to pay. The Bank was taking posession prior to selling the farm. Francis saw it as an opportunity for Kosie to get on his own feet and proposed that they buy the farm on half shares, Kosie was glad and agreed.
They bought Rusfontein in partnership. They paid the debtor one hundred pounds and assumed responsibility for the Landbank bond obligations The move to Rusfontein was a great day for Kosie and his young wife. Moving with a wagon, built with his own hands and pulled by his own span of oxen.
Kosie grew Wheat with success, selling the crop at one pound and two shillings per bag. He later bought his Brother-in -law's share of the farm.
Jacobus Johannes 13-10-1899 / 26-9-65 x Henrietta Carolina Lamprecht 28-2-07 / 2-6-70

The Ferreiras of Langebaan and Gamtoos were many in number. As a consequence nicknames were used and family lines became known by those
Kort Thomas was the father of Hendrik Atties so named because as a child he had mimicked a Hottentot called Atties, he x Susanna Johanna Louwrens. They did not leave Gamtoos.
Their children, four sons : Tommie, Hendrik, Pieter Lourens and Solomon. (Solomon became known as Salman Matabele). and Daughters Martha x Hermanus Gerhardus Kok. went to Rhodesia in 1895.
Salman Matabele was a resourceful lad and when 15, delivered a wagon for a Potgieter to Barclay-East. His brothers were in Rhodesia on a business venture where they met Cecil Rhodes. They learned that Rhodes intended experimenting with Merino sheep and recommended their brother Salman for the job of transporting the 330 sheep from Humansdorp where the animals were procured in the belief that the diseases and pests were probably similar to what prevailed in Rhodesia.
The sheep were conveyed by train as far as the railhead at Mafeking and from there driven on the hoof for the remaining more than six-hundred miles. Salman walking the entire distance without a road or known landmarks, constantly under threat of predators and unfriendly inhabitants, he delivered the animals at the farm Enkledoorn, the intended destination. He received a 3 000 morgan farm as a reward.
Salman's venture with the sheep caused the family to become interested and the whole family including in-laws, decided to move to Rhodesia, in particular three brothers, Piet, Hendrik and Tommie and two brothers-in-law including Hermanus Gerhardus Kok who married sister Martha Johanna and their 5 children.
The Merino experiment was aborted as the sheep were slaughtered to feed the military forces during the Matabele and Mashona wars, where the Ferreiras excelled in the fighting to the extent that in his subsequent letter of appreciation Rhodes wrote "One Ferreira is worth more to me than an entire regiment of soldiers".

Solomon 17-7-1895 / 27-5-1967 x Magdalena Elizabeth Celliers 27-3-1891 / 9-9-1972 . Parents, with sons Theodorus and Danie moved to Rhodesia , travelling by train, they arrived at Umvuma on April 27 1927.
Nephew of Group 2 Solomon, he bought farm Hugosfontein as recommended by his uncle who had already settled on Swartfontein near Enkeldoorn town Solomon and family farmed on Hugosfontein for about two years then bought Rooipoort adjoining town on East side. There was no kraal and buildings were delapidated making it necessary to make bricks and renovate before moving from Hugosfontein. After school, his sons had to work on the farm . Magdalena was a trained nurse and helped out at the hospital, bringing in appreciated extra earnings . Magdalena was also a good seamstress and made all the boys clothes from unbleached calico bags used by milling companies and sugar refineries. It was quite normal for the boys to wear shirts with the milling company or sugar refinery name displayed.
As the Economy improved after the world depession, Solomon made hundreds of thousands bricks, sold to the government for another hospital, maternity home, an extra school hostel for girls and additional houses and single quarters for the police. The sudden growth also caused businesses to expand needing more bricks. Solomon built his own trading store and milling plant on the part of the farm that jutted into the town, with the road to Range and Buhera and District Commissioners headquarters passing in front of the store
Solomon then built his own salepens and speculated in buying and selling cattle. He employed four cattle buyers who toured the communal lands with the appreciated approval of chiefs and headmen, the purchased animals being resold at the auction pens. Solomon personally attended to buying cattle from the local commercial farmers. Solomon took advantage of opportunities offered by the banks, to take over liabilities for bonds on which the banks had foreclosed and thereby obtained extra grazing for his speculation cattle.
On Rooipoort Solomon had a shooting range where about 150 surrounding farmers, men and women met for shoots

GREYLING Jan ( early settler) x Cousin of Josias Martin Hoffman (Leader of Hoffman trek)
XX Marthina, Daughter of Josias Martin Hoffman ! Lived along Umvuma road. At one stage in 1896, Jan travelled to Bulawayo on family business, members of his family including his nephew Basjan Nieuwoudt, accompanied him. After starting the journey Jan went down with malaria and was seriously ill. By the time they reached Gwelo the whole family was ill and unable to watch the oxen. The animals strayed and were on their way back to Enkeldoorn when finally located by Enkeldoorn relatives who had been alerted. At the Shangani river Rinderpest regulations compelled Jan to leave his family and he travelled by coach to Bulawayo. On the return trip he found a group of people stranded at a roadside tavern near the Shangani river. There was widespread unrest and the stranded people urged the Greylings not to proceed with their homeward journey but Jan refused to delay. He offered a lift to anyone who wished to join him but they all declined the offer. The Greylings continued on their way and reached Gwelo safely. That night the group at Shangani who had urged him to delay his journey, were attacked and all thirteen were killed.

Josias Hoffnan (Jnr) was by himself for 45 days, on his father's farm Geluksverwacht, looking after the Hoffman and Louw de Klerk cattle. Frequently flat on his back for several days with malaria and the cattle attacked by lions and other predators. People passed by on their way back to their own farms and left carcasses of cattle that died of rinderpest on the farm, with the result that the Hoffman and de Klerk cattle were infected. Of a total 230, only 8 survived. Josias Martin was the eldest son of J.P. Hoffman, President of Orange Free State. Josias married his first cousin Susanna Alida Hoffman, daughter of J.J. Hoffman
In 1891 the Hoffman family group, living near Potchefstroom, Transvaal sent two members Louw Hoffman and Frans Botha, to inspect the region near Fort Charter and if satisfied, to peg twenty-four farms to be occupied by the group. They liked the area alongside the Umniati river near the Manesi hills and after pegging the farms along both banks of the river, returned to Pochefstroom where their report was favourable.
The family group, under Josias Martin Hoffman, travelled by ox-wagon. They departed from Wolmaransstad near Potchefstroom on 13 June 1893. They arrived at Kudushoek (renamed Pennyfather) sixteen and half months later, on 1 November 1894..
For more details read the Hoffman Trek.
Josef Adlam and family had arrived in the district two months before them, the only other near neighbours were the Potgieter family who had arrived in 1891. On the first night after their arival a lion killed two cattle. It happened to be the first loss to lions throughout their trek. Two days later it was shot. The
brothers Josias and Danie, on horseback, were surprised by a charge but the lion stopped a few yards from them when the dogs attacked the lion with the Hoffmans watching. The brothers Potgieter, their new neighbours arrived on foot and immediately took steps to kill the lion. David Potgieter shot it through
the ribs but it continued to attack and was on the point of jumping at Josias when his shot in the head dropped it. The first of many lions he killed.
In addition to the lions, their livestock as well as the humans were under constant threat of attack by leopards, hyenas and wild-dogs. On one occasion Josias (Jnr) and Louw Hoffman came across about 30 wild-dogs that started circling round them prior to the attack. The pack dispersed only after six had been shot.
On occasion all seven members of the family were down, seriously ill with malaria and unable to help eachother or prepare meals. They shared many other problems with their neighbours as detailed in the varios chapters dealing with specific matters.
It is on record that in spite of the difficulties, the Hoffmans were a cheerful family and as was the case with their forebears during the Great (Afrikaner) Trek, each member had a bible and song book and there were regular home services.
SJosias Martin x Susanna Alida Hoffman settled on Geluksverwacht.

Josias Philip had his crops on Inhoek, planted by Christmas 1894 and went to visit his family. On his return he found van Rooyen in occupation. Van Rooyen refused to move off, claiming that Josias had abandoned the farm. The matter was decided by Veld Kornet Tom Ferreira who advised that it be treated as a sale and the farm changed ownership for thirty pounds. Josias then moved to the farm Kudushoek which his brother Mathiam was vacating to go gold mining at
Gatooma. Josias changed the name to Pennyfather. He sometimes walked to
Sterkstroom to visit the de Klerks for up to a week..

Johannes Jacobus born 1710 in Waldeck, Germany arrived at Cape of Good Hope in 1733 as a mercenary soldier. He x Johanna Jannetjie van Rooyen. Their Great-grandson Gideon Jacobus born 6-1-1782 in Swellendam, followed his fiance Jacomina Johanna Vermaak to the Gamtoos when her parents moved there. In 1802 they married and settled on Koksseplaas. Their son Gert Stephanus x Katarina Susanna Taute and grandson Hermanus Gerhardus x Martha Johanna Ferreira
Hermanus Gerhardus 1855 / 1896 and. wife Martha Johanna Ferreira, (1860 / 1937) arrived 1895 with the Pieter Ferreira trek, Martha was a sister of trek leader Pieter. The Koks had with them, two sons and four daughters. A third son, Hendrik (Rex) followed later. The family group trekked from the Gamtoos valey in the Eastern Cape Colony. The move was by train as far as Mafeking and from there by ox-wagon averaging 15 miles a day in two shifts. The eldest son 14 year old, Gert Stephanus was the leader for the Kok wagon. When outspanned the oxen and other livestock had to be watered and constantly guarded against lions.
The children enjoyed the free outdoor life, not realising nor sharing the worries of the adults. They arrived at Vaalkop (later Enkeldoorn town) in 1895. Hermanus pegged Veeplaas, which adjoined the farms allocated to his Ferreira Brothers-n-law. Shortly after, he contracted malaria and died of black-water fever Their daughter Inez also died They were buried on Vaalkop and later re-interred at the Enkeldoorn cemetary. With the outbreak of Mashona hostilities the family moved to the lager, initially on Enkeldoorn then moved to Vaalkop
After her husbands death Mr Rhodes was helpful and offered Martha to send her and the children back to Gamtoos. She refused, saying that they had left an overcrowded Eastern Province looking for a better life for their children. She did however send her four daughters, travellimg with Mr. Rhodes, back for a few years
When the trek left Gamtoos Hermanus and Martha left their son Hendrik (Rex) with a brother and his wife, a childless couple. As the transport situation became easier, widow Martha wanted her child but the couple refused to send him making it nacessary for her to travel to Gamtoos to fetch him.
After the Mashona war, son Gert Stephanus , having heard of mines being opened in Northern Rhodesia, left on foot to look for employment, he headed North. He walked along the Zambesi river to Kazangulu where he crossed. At one stage, a vast flat area, partly flooded, tested his endurance to the limits, walking mile after
mile through the water he became exhausted The water was too deep to sit down for a rest and on the point of collapse, he had to keep walking. After trekking unsuccessfully to many distant places, he returned about eight months later, carrying, as his only reward a small pig he had been given. About 1908, he bought Glenconnor. His sister Eugenie joined him on Glenconnor and later, his mother, who had obtained some plots in Enkeldoorn, joined him.
A single man Willie Staines was employed on the farm and married Widow Martha Kok. A small distance seperated the two homesteads.
A small stream, the Manese river, crossed the farm Helped by Willie Staines and using only a spirit level and length of string to determine the flow of water, a canal two and half miles long, was dug to provide irrigation water from the Manese river. The main crops being wheat, maize and citrus, three varieties of nartjies and one orange. The citrus trees were from seed brought from Gamtoos, all trees from seedlings as grafted trees were still unknown. Grapes from cuttings brought from Gamtoos were grown for home consumption and also prickly pears. Gert took 4 head of cattle to the farm, on the first night a lion killed the bull. He devised a trap gun that he used with success, eliminating leopards and lions.
Willie Staines died of Dropsy and was burried in the small farm cemetary.
Following his death, Widow Martha continued to stay on Glenconnor till her death in 1937. Prior to her marriage, Gert's young sister Eugene stayed with him. The first school in the area was started and the children received a reasonable education.
In 1910 Gert x Elizabeth Mary Wheeler. He built a pole and dagga house for his bride. Later a trading store was established and Gert extended his operations by speculating very successfully with cattle which became the major operation on Glenconnor. He bought from individuals in the area and communal lands. He made a practice of always selling the best beasts and contrary to normal practice, with considerable success, keeping the poorer animals for breeding. Crops were conveyed to the market at Gatooma by oxwagon. On the return trip game was shot and the meat bartered with the indigenous people, for grain. On occasion a cattle desease, Foot and Mouth causing wide ranging quarantine, cought him at Gatooma and he was not permitted to return to the farm with his oxen. He bought donkeys to return to Glenconnor
From the new owners, Gert bought both A and B of Manese Poort farm, initially owned by P.L. Ferreira who subdivided and sold, A and B, A being on the North bank of Manese river and B on the South, adjoining Glenconnor. He followed this by buying Vlakfontein and some years later, Perserverence which adjoined Vlakfontein. Gert died in 1956.
Gert's son, Hermanus Gerhardus (Baas) 1911 / 1980 and wife Rhoda Grace Pocock farmed on Manesepoort B where, in 1935 he built a home and moved from Glenconnor. Daniel and wife Maria (nee Jordaan) Grobler, with son Henry and daughter Christina lived in a brick house on Manesepoort B which they leased and farmed for 25 years till 1948 when he bought and moved to Mexico. Also, for a time, on B was the large Gerber family who lived in a pole and daga house.
Irrigation water for Manesepoort A and B was available from the Manese river. B was connected to the Glenconnor canal while A on the other side of the river was fed by its own canal. Commercial crops grown under irrigation were: Citrus, Wheat, Maize, Tomatoes, Onions, and Potatoes.
Schooling was a serious problem.
Rhoda Kok (wife of Baas) a qualified school teacher, tought their son Allan and children of the family and neighbours by correspondence. Allan b2c1d1 then went to Prince Edward Junior school but brother Gert and the Grobler daughter, Christina, attended Louwdia as week boarders. They had to walk the six miles from Manesepoort B, through the Poort every Monday morning and back home every Friday afternoon. Later a three ton lorry was bought and the children were taken to school with the produce being taken to market.
Allan Kok was tought by his mother to standard three, he then went to Prince Edward Junior, still a part of Prince Edward the name of the Junior section was changed to Allan Wilson and again to Selborn Rutlidge, he boarded at Selous House. He then went to Prince Edward senior and boarded at Rhodes House.
b2c2 Gert to Louwdia then Liebenberg and then to Prince Edward senior.
b2c4 James (Jim) tought by Rhoda Kok then to Liebenberg and to Allan
Wilson senior
In 1946 b2c1 Baas, bought Leleza, named after an African Chief called Leleza
who had previously lived there. His son Neville c1d2 x Algea Bartlett-Torr lived
on Leleza . He farmed with his father on Manesepoort B. When Ralph c1d3 left
school he also joined Baas and Neville on Manesepoort B. In 1970's after
Baas had portioned off his farms to his sons, Neville bought Abercorn Extension, to the East of Abercorn which he named ABEX Estate, but continued to farm with Baas and Ralph till Baas died.
Transport to the Kok farms to the West of the Hills, was by ox-wagon and after negotiating the precarious path over the mountain, there followed about two and half miles of Vlei, which, prior to the construction of Road Council roads, in the wet season took an average two days to cross by wagon with overnight stays at the wagon, with Mosquitoes for company There were very few trips to civilisation and these were restricted to the three monthly trips to town for Nagmaal.
In 1948 Gert Stephanus Kok (b2c3) younger brother of Baas, x Christina Johanna (Poppie) de Klerk married and moved to Manese Poort A.
In 1948 tobacco barns were built on both Manesepoort A and B and also Glenconnor. Thereafter tobacco was the main crop. Low rainfall and consequent lack of irrigation water made it necessary to stop growing wheat. Citrus continued on Manesepoort B till the trees died about 1953. On A irrigation continued with the available water , till the trees died through lack of water.
When Gert Stephanus (b2) died in 1956 his son b2c4 James Wheeler (Jim)
continued to farm on Glenconnor.

Baas was educated at Boys High, later changed to Prince Edward. With his sons Neville and Ralph, he farmed (Cattle) on Manesepoort B
By 1950 b2c1 Baas, who already owned Leleza, bought Nyamazaan and in 1960 Loudia. He reshaped the farms, taking 3 000 acres from Nyamazaan he added 2 000 acres to Laleza and 1 000 acres to Loudia Before he died Baas gave his reshaped farms to his sons. Nyamazaan to Allan, Laleza to Neville who already owned Abets Estate, Ralph got Loudia and Manesepoort B. In 1981 Neville left for Australia after selling his farms to brother Ralph. Later the Kok family sold their farms, being Manesepoort A and B, ABEX Estate, Leleza and Glenconnor to the Government or individual Africans.

The Kok family were dedicated, staunch believers and supporters of the Church which they served as the occasion permitted. b2c1d1 Allan served on the 7th. Day Adventist Council. Allan, well known and respected as a Lay-preacher, took part in religious activities regardless of the denomination, including funeral services. There are people in most Communities, said to be at the end of the telephone line, known for their selfless readiness to help others in need, particularly in times of illness. Allan Kok was one of them. The family served the Community in many ways as Members, Secretaries, Vice-Chairmen and Chairmen of Committees as detailed elsewhere.
Other branches of the Kok group included Steven A cousin of Gert (Dick) and several other cousins who found employment in the Rhodesian prison service. Steven Kok was Chief Jailer at Enkeldoorn about 1942 replacing Kerneels du Randt. 1n 1960 he was transferred to Gwelo. Also an Overseer working locally for Roads Department

The Ned. Geref. Church headquarters at Cape Town dispatched Rev. Albertus Jacobus Liebenberg to assume responsibility for missionary and teaching leadership, of the Munyati congregation. He arrived at Beira on 6 May 1896, in the company of Rev's Le Roux and Strassheim. The Mashona war caused him to be delayed at Umtali and after traveling with escort, arrived at Fort Salisbury on 8 August 1896. He was again delayed at Fort Salisbury where he served as a Sergeant in the military forces. He met Rhodes and the two men became friends. When he left for Munyati, accompanied by Lampbrecht, Rhodes asked him to locate a suitable site for a town for which Rhodes specified basic conditions. He arrived at the lager on Vaalkop in October 1896 with C Lamprecht and on 1 November 1896 and on1-11-1896 baptised the first child of his career, it was Rudolph Smith.
In 1899, Rev. Liebenberg married Engela Neetling a school teacher. They traveled by train as far as Bulawayo, then by ox-wagon to Iron mine Hill and from there by Zeederberg coach.
He became the central motivating force within the community. He attended to all church functions, sometimes acting without the Church Council authority when the members failed to attend meetings. He was school teacher and secretary of the Farmers Association which he had organised. Numerous attempts by Church authorities to have him transferred, were nullified by the steadfast opposition of his congregation who regarded him as their undisputed leader. He died in 1933. To his memory and selfless service, is recorded that he selected the site where the town was established, started the Farmers Association, The cheese factory, School hostels, Meeting house, Magnificent church and a legend of friendship. His contemporary, Rev. Crisp wrote in glowing terms of his help and friendship. His name will be remembered as a lasting monument to a great man. The Liebenberg school is named after him.
In 1902 (?) he reoresented the Enkeldoorn community at the funeral of Cecil Rhodes.

Lulu was a school teacher at Liebenberg School and in particular taught music and singing
When Mardie tried to get Lulu to take up nursing Lulu was taken aback and replied "lay my hands on a man, never!"
In later life Mardie lived with her mother in town where she had a lovely garden On occasion at a party Mardie complained that the town was dead and conspired with a friend. She then (at midnight) rang the D.R.C. bell while her fellow conspiritor rang the Anglican church bell.

O"NEILL Hendrik 1887 / 1960 x Anna Maria Helena van der Merwe 1891 / 1976!
arrived 1919 with Anna's parents, who came from Natal.
The O'Niell family home at Majuba, site of decisive war of 1881 when Boers defeated the British army, was the venue where peace was discussed and signed, the Homestead was declared a South African National Monument.
They settled as crop sharing Lessees on Geluksverwacht, then moved to Manzi farm, where Hendrik worked for the owner Bekker until 1946, producing wheat and cattle. Their period at Manzi was a struggle to make ends meet and both had frequent attacks of malaria. Manzi was on the road leading to Enkeldoorn with a low water drift on the Unniati river, which was close to the homestead.
During the rainy season the river was often unfordable and the stranded travellers would seek shelter with the O'Neills where all were welcome, with the O'Neils, themselves short, scraping the bottom of the bucket to feed the stranded people. It was often a case of the mealie and the odd bokkie for the pot keeping them going. Transport was a donkey cart and with no refrigeration on the farm, it meant an early start to get the little produce, butter and cream for sale, to town.
In 1946 they moved back to Geluksverwacht. They had six children , all except Stoffel left the area after leaving school;

Tys ? s.o. Stephanus One of the group that the Mashona attacked on Sterkstroom. He cowardly saved himself by running off without firing a shot. He tried to talk a coloured nursemaid who was hiding in tall grass with her tiny charge, baby Joey Bekker, to go with him but arguing that the fighting was far from finished, she refused. When he reached the group on Mooifontein, he told them he was the only survivor from Sterkstroom. Hermanus Bester became suspicious and examined his rifle, proving that it had not been fired. He was shamed into admitting the truth.
