According to the records the farm 'De Twee Jongegezellen' was
granted to Jan Gysbert Olivier in 1749, but Anna Boeseken reads
in the documents that it was most likley first graned to Jacobuse
du Preez and then later, on Olivier marrying du Preez's widow,
Maria Sussanna Theron, the grant was made over to him. He and
his wife lived and farmed there until their deaths in 1797.

# The parents of Jan Gysbert Olivier

I have been unable to find unequivocal evidence that Jan Gijsbert Olivier
is the same person as the son of Jan Olivier and Helena Burger who was
baptised Johannes Gijsbert in 1725 but I have found no other individual
of that name at that period; Jan Gisbert's eldest son was baptised Jan
Henrik and his sponsors were Jan Olivier and Helena Burger as one would
expect for their grandson; other children of Jan Gijsbert have siblings of
Johannes Gijsbert as baptismal witnesses.
