“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.”
