NIEUWOUDT
Isaac NIEUWOUDT (* Holland), van Amsterdam “kwam naar Zuid-Afrika als weduwenaar en hertrouwde Anna van Wijk”. Sy aankoms aan die Kaap was omstreeks 1716. Blykbaar kon hy eers trou nadat hy in 1723 burgerskap ontvang het in Drakenstein. Nieuwe Woudt is ʼn pleknaam naby Groningen, Holland. Hy was soldaat en later chirurgyn x Kaapstad Johanna (Anna) VAN WYK (≈ 13 Jun 1688), d.v. Willem van Wyk en Catharina Hillebrandt
b1 Gerrit (* 17 Des 1716 ≈ Kaapstad 2 Mei 1717 † c. 1797), burger Drakenstein. Daar is geen rekord dat hy ʼn eie kind van Isaac, die stamvader, was nie. Hy is gedoop deur Anna van Wyk en haar vorige man, Gerrit Willemse. Gevolglik word aanvaar dat Gerrit die familienaam Nieuwoudt aangeneem het x Drakenstein 6 Apr 1739 Johanna STEENKAMP (* 21 Sep 1716 ≈ 4 Okt 1716 † c. 1788), d.v. Jan Steenkamp en Gesina Visser

Ou Kaapse Families A-J

Van der walt
(Nederland

The Progenitor (“stamvader”) of the van der Walt families in South Africa was Gaele Andries born in the town of Veenwouden, Friesland. He arrived at the Cape in 1727, employed as a sailor in the service of the V.O.C.
He married the eighteen year old Johanna Weijers, daughter of Heinrich Weijers from Eppe, Germany and Anna Elizabeth Gerrits in 1742.
Gaele and his bride settled on the farm Uijtkyk in the Roggeveld area where Gaele was probably farming for some time.
Gaele Andries van der Walt died in February 1757 at an age of 52 years.
There were eight children born out of the marriage, five sons and three daughters.
b1 Andries
b2 Hendrik
b3 Renske
b4 Tjaart
b5 Johannes Petrus
b6 Anna Maria
b7 Johanna Catharina
b8 Nicolaas
Eighty six grandchildren followed, forty three sons and forty three daughters. This numbers will let to the largest documented family register in South Africa in the years to come.
The next generation moved inland in the North-Easterly direction to settle around the Sneeu and Renoster mountains. Further generations will spread from here to settle all over South Africa and also more recently across the world.
Johanna Weijers remarried Christian Godlieb Lessing on the 24th of November 1758. This made Johanna the female progenitor (“stammoeder”) for both the van der Walt and the Lessing families in South Africa.
