Abstract:

"This book recalls the history and families of the better known farms agter de Steenbergen, from what has previously been a fragmented account through various journals and bulletins. The time-period of the South Peninsula farms extends from 1738, when the first grazing farm was granted, until recently. Special attention has been given to twelve farms at Cape Point. The concept of a large local nature reserve began in the late 1930s, and the Divisional Council of the Cape was the founding authority. Their involvement through their acquisition of the Cape Point farms resulted in their becoming the first local authority in South Africa to accept nature conservation as one of its public services. Acknowledgement must be given to them any current and previous owners of the South Peninsula farms, whose personal accounts have added much to this history."--Back cover.
