Shared note

Nicolaas was living in the Cold Bokkeveld, which came under the district of Stellenbosch, see map (70k). In July 1804 the district of Tulbagh, see map (78k) was formed and they then came under this district. When searching for documents this should be kept in mind. Between 1 October 1770 and 20 December 1786, Nicolaas had a loan farm called Eensaamheid (99k) (4) (Literally it means loneliness), close to Winterhoek on the Olifants River. From the name of the farm it sounds like it was very isolated and lonely. Situated between Witzenberg and Skurweberg mountains, and on the Oliphants river. The explorer C.P. Thunberg(5) in 1773 gives a good description of this area. The sheep are counted mornings and evenings and they are marked in their ears to be easily identified. The farmer's wife would count the sheep and she also had a name for each sheep. If any were missing, she would be able to identify which ones. He mentions the farms of Izaak Visagie and on his way to Carl van der Merwe's farm he passed the farm of our Nicolaas Jansen. This area is considered to be the Cold Bokkeveld (present Ceres district) which has severe colds in winter including falls of snow. In the mountains are found a shrub called flybush (Roridula Dentata) the leaves of which are covered with fine hairs and a tough glutinous substance to which smaller insects sticks. Thunberg mentions that the people place in their homes this bush, for the purpose of catching flies. http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Atlantis/4364/c2.htm
