Morgansvlei Country Estate

In 1700 the first settlers came to "The Land of Waveren" which was to be renamed Tulbagh in 1806. Straatskerk, now known as Morgansvlei, together with the likes of Twee Jonge Gesellen, Le Rhone, Montpelier and Theuniskraal were some of the first farms in the area. Morgansvlei has the added distinction of being the first farm to be leased to a married woman, one Jannetjie de Clerq, who named the farm after her birthplace in the Netherlands. She was left to farm on her own as her husband languished on Robben Island, serving a life sentence for "bestial treatment of his slave" and other offences.
