|Daniel Rossouw 1
of Kruijshof, at the Groenenberg, district Drakenstein 3
born at the Cape 4
| When his first wife died in 1741 their farm was named d'Hooge Heuvel,|
situated on the Valsche Rivier, and apparently a loan farm since it was
described as an 'opstal'. They owned five slaves and little else to judge
from the inventory drawn up on 18th August 1741. No animals are
mentioned, which seems unlikely.
The later inventory dated 1750 lists them on a farm, described as a home
stead ('hofsteede'), presumably freehold, named Kruijshof, at the
Groenenberg, district Drakenstein, with three loan farms situated on the
Gauwers Rivier named De Valsche Rivier, Gouwrivier and De Snipfontein.
He is presumably the same Daniel Rossouw, named 'd'oude', whose
inventory was drawn up on the 14th March 1774, since he still owned the
farm Kruijshof, now described as lying beyond the Berg River at the corner
of the Limiet Mountain, of 60 morgen with also annexed to it De Standvastig-
heid also of 60 morgen, but their main residence appears to have been the
farm called La Concorde in Drakenstein, also of 60 morgen. Since the first
inventory of 1741, which lists so little, he had managed to accumulate a
large estate, a very well furnishe house and 21 slaves.
