Susanna Margaretha de Smidt and 1.2.14.3 Jan Christoffel Berrangé Serrurier were “legally divorced” circa. 1859, whereafter  Susanna Margaretha resumed her maiden name,  proudly being known as “Miss de Smidt” until her death in 1913. Her siblings were a brothers, John and Henry de Smidt C.M.G., sisters Maria Watermeyer of Eastbourne, England and Catharina Hendricka de Smidt of Rondebosch (d. 20 July 1912). She died in “Ophir Lodge”, Banksia Rd, Rosebank, the home of her niece who was married to one “Cecil Corey, Commission Merchant and General Merchant”, and the executor of her estate. She left an estate of £1435/17/5 to a long list of nephews, nieces and her surviving siblings  [MOOC13/1/2097  No.240    MOOC13/1/2135  No.198.]

 

1.2.14.4 Louis Anthon(y)ie Serrurier b 26 August 1827(1831) ~ 9 September 1827 d "Zwagershoek", Sea Point 2 July 1876. Civil servant. [MOOC 6/9/156  No.2923] m Cornelia Gerhardina Smuts (b February 1835 d 28 July 1895), Cape Town 26 August 1862. No offspring.


 

Abraham de Smidt (AdS) was one time owner of Groote Schuur, an artist of note and later Surveyor-General of the Cape Colony. One daughter married the prominent attorney J H Redelinghuys who, in 1862 took over AdS’s home, “Sea Point House” renaming it “Weltevreden”. AdS produced 3 daughters, Dora, Susanna and Johanna. Renowned for their culture and good taste, “Weltevreden” remained the home of the 3 sisters and a centre of Cape society until 1931 when the last sister died. The house was raised to the ground and a cinema built in its stead.

 

In 1875 the De Smidt’s were seasonal tenants of a certain L A Serrurier of “Wave Crest”, Sea Point. In those days, it was the custom for the wealthy to move (literally lock, stock ’n’ barrel) to the Sea Point coast - “wij gaan nu achter toe” - in the hot summer months. Here they either already owned bijou residences which stood closed up for most of the year, or they rented accommodation from permanent residents. As an extended family, the Serruriers had substantial property interests in and about the Green Point, Sea Point and Fresnaye area.

Cornelia Gerhardina Smuts (do.Johannes Smuts and Susan Margaret Ferris) died married to Johannes Jeremias Cornelis Blignaut of Church Street, Wellington. No offspring. She died leaving an estate of £3736/18/11 to her brother, Louis B Smuts of Paarl.

I have not been able to find definitive proof of the father-son relationships quoted above. However, there is strong circumstantial evidence to support my hypothesis.

 

The Death Certificate of Lodewyk (Louis) Snr states his father as being John Frederick Serrurier and mother Charlotte Serrurier.

 

The Death Certificate of Frederick Serrurier states his father as being Jan Frederick and mother Deah Fredricka Mathews.

 

Estate papers of Jan(John) Frederik state that the only off-spring living at the time of his death were his siblings : Jan Frederick S., Cornelia Eliana S., Magdalena Elisabeth S., Johannes Petrus S., Jan S and a Louis S, ~ surely Lodewyk S Snr.

 

Oral history has it that there were at least 3 brothers and a sister, thus Ludewyk (Louis) Snr b 1815, Samuel (“Alexander”)b 1818, Johannes Petrus (“John Peter”) b 1823. The relationships are borne out in the Liquidation and Distribution Accounts of the Estate of Ludewyk Snr (bequest to Henry Lawrence, “son of Samuel”) and of Johannes Petrus (“John Peter”), where the spouse of  James Alexander Yule Serrurier is stated as being his closest relative. The original will has yet to be found.

 


The oral history relating to the sister is as follows: Unknown Female ~ said to have been an extremely attractive woman. Married beneath her social standing. He, a basket-maker, had his little factory in the basement of the St. Stephen’s Church, the “Old Theatre” or “komediehuis” in Riebeeck Square, Cape Town. Later, she went on to live with Judge Denys of the OVS “after whom Deneysville is named” (sic). She produced 2 daughters : a daughter who married a “tobacco man”; and another daughter who married a tug-master known as “Captain”. The latter couple produced a daughter who reputedly married into wealth.

 

An extraordinary feature of researching this family is the little evidence for marriages having been solemnised in church. Certainly, only 7 have been found in the registers of the Dutch Reformed Church, Caper Town.

In the DRC Marriage Register 1804-1872, the name Serrurier as in Lodewyk is spelt “Serrunje.”

Lodewyk Serrurier Snr was a well-known, successful Cape Town carriage-builder and wagon-maker. He made a fortune at the time of the Great Trek. His extensive business premises stood on the site of the current Supreme Court, 43-47 Keeromstraat, Cape Town. He left his business to his son, Charles George. Known for his parsimonious ways, he gave his nephew, James Alexander Yule enough money for him to buy a suit to wear to “Charlie’s” funeral.  On one occasion was witnessed by James Alexander Yule as having dropped his wallet in the street outside Standard Bank. On having it returned to him by JAYS, the same was rewarded with “a tanner” (six-pence).

 

His estate documents are numerous (published over a period of 12 years), lengthy and of considerable interest. However, I have been unable to trace his Will and Testament.

 

The curators and executors were to be Lodewyk Jnr, son (who died 19 April 1898) and Lodewyk Charles, grandson (who was “absent from the colony”). Charles George and Daniel K Berrangé substituted.

 

The First Liquidation and Distribution Account certified by Bertha Ann Serrurier attaches to the estate a worth of £103,127/0/1, approximately 15% of which is invested in substantial property interests, the remainder in bonds, debentures, personal loans, stocks and shares. 

 

Amongst the numerous bequests, the major ones were to:

Bertha Anne Serrurier (neé Merrit), money (£2000) and properties

Lodewyk Charles Serrurier (50% after other disbursements : £41434/18/4) and properties 

Charles George Maximillian Serrurier (1/6th : £6905/16/5) and properties

Mrs Eleanor Elizabeth van Niekerk (life interest on £3000 pa.)

The minor children of Charles George Serrurier (5/6th : about  £2000 pa. each)

Charles George Serrurier (£750) (!)

Henry Lawrence Serrurier (“son of Samuel”) (£100)

Agnes Harriett Serrurier (niece)

E Townsend of Mowbray (niece)(receipt witnessed by C & W Townsend)

 

Charles George , Daniel K Berrangé were appointed curator (together with the Orphan Chamber) of the bequest to the minor grandchildren. The grandchildren are listed as : (majors) Lodewyk Charles, Charles Lodewyk Maximilian (minors) Bertha Henrietta, Frederick Oscar Henry, Louise Eleanor, Laura Pauline, Harriett Maria.

 

Organisations that benefited included the D R Church, Adderley Street, the Wesleyan Church, Green Market Square, The Men’s Home for the Aged and Indigent, and The Peoples Dispensary.

 

Mrs Eleanor Elizabeth van Niekerk’s capital amount of £3000 was distributed in July 1903 following her death. [MOOC 13/1/1188  No.172]

 

J C Berrangé and Son of Burg Street were the “Attornies, Notaries and Conveyancers”.

Charles George Serrurier, in business with James Tennant (Tennant & Serrurier), had his property (a subdivision of “Zorgvliet Farm”, Rosebank), attached 16 May 1884. Hugely complicated (and seemingly fraudulent) transactions had preceded this, involving the taking of a bond on the property with one Dirk Gysberk Eksteen, which, days after signing, was ceded to “sponsors” The South African Loan Mortgage & Mercentile Agency Ltd and Willem August Lippert respectively. Neither appear to have been serviced and Lippert called in the loan . The outstanding debt was appraised as £111/8/6 on an estate of £1673/18/6. He was finally declared  insolvent on 15 December 1887, the order being signed by J C B Serrurier, Registrar of the Supreme Court. [MOIB 2/2006 816]

 

Charles George Serrurier was wealthy having inherited his father’s wagon-maker’s business and (indirectly) part of his fortune. Said to have “never worked a day in his life”, he is reputed to have been very generous and was known “From The Cape to the Zambezi” for his friendliness and open-handedness.

Samuel Serrurier (“Alexander”) was sexton to the “Scotch Church” (St.Andrew’s Church, Cape Town) in 1867 and conducted business from 1 Berning’s Buildings near Somerset Road. He was a well-known coffin-maker and undertaker. He died impoverished, owed a good deal of money on plots he had purchased on behalf of clients in Woltemade Cemetery, Maitland and who demised without settling their debts. His death notice was lodged by Henry Lawrence Serrurier (Harry Laurence ~ “Harvey”) on 16 March 1881.

[MOOC 1/1/555  R10/576] (b June 1858 d 3 March 1928 do. Thomas & Mary Ann Apsey)


 

Henry Lawrence (Laurence) Serrurier and his wife Emily Caroline lived at 3 Hem(m)ing St., Kimberley when they died. However, they left behind them Lot 2 Block 51 in Fraserburg as part of their meagre estates. This had a book value of £800 having been  bonded to a solicitor in Fraserburg, one Daniel Mills Dyason {DMD}, for two amounts : £400 and £375 respectively. He, in turn, had ceded the bonds to the Standard Bank as security against an overdraft. By 1928, Fraserburg had been subjected to several years of drought, with a subsequent downturn in the value of properties. The Master of the Supreme Court tried to have the executor of Emily Caroline Serrurier’s estate [her long-suffering son-in-law E T C Holmes {ETCH}]  settle the estate. He declined because of the low property value. The bond holder {DMD} tried the same with the same result; and the Standard Bank was equally persistent of DMD. By December 1929, the outstanding debt on the Estate was £849/13/5, with the property having a current estimated value of £150. On 6 April 1931, DMD was sequestrated. He promptly had a heart attack and died on 25 April 1931. The property was sold by the Standard Bank at an auction on 4 January 1932 to one, Pieter Andries Stephanus le Roux for £150. The Henry Lawrence (Laurence) Serrurier and wife, Emily Caroline, estates were finalised on 25 March 1932, with death duties of £161 being waived by the state. All costs other than those of the bond had been carried by the offspring up until that time who felt a “moral responsibility to settle things”.

 

In the General Directory of South Africa (1894-1895) HLS is listed as a butcher and general dealer. There remains a Serrurier Street in Fraserburg, mute testimony to his passage.

1.2.5.2.1.2.2 Louis Douglas Serrurier b 9 December 1920

 

Louis Douglas Serrurier founded the motor racing team “LDS” in South Africa in 1956. It was active 1962-1968. Cars that were favoured over that period were Alfa Romeo (1962), Climax (1965-67), Repco (1968). Various specials were built for local races.  His Mark 1 and 2 models were based on Cooper designs, whilst the Mark 3 was based on the Brabham BT11.

 

The name Alfa Romeo is synonymous with motor racing in South Africa. Back in the early 1960's, Alfa's jewel-like, twin-cam, 1500 cc motor was the preferred choice of many of SA's top drivers - men like Syd van der Vyver, Doug Serrurier, Bruce

Johnstone and Ernie Pieterse.

 

1962 Rand Grand Prix, 15th. December – Kyalami, included the usual Lotus and BRM teams, Coopers, a Lola and specials of South African build like the LDS, the Assegai and the Netuar.

In the General Directory of South Africa (1894-1895), J A Y Serrurier listed as a mattress-maker working at 32 Wicht St. and living at 70 Constitution St., Cape Town. Later, he became a compositor and linotype setter for “The Cape Times”. He is said to have fought in the Kaffirr Wars. Of “Tamboerskloof / City Bowl branch” of family. Lived in Roukoop Rd, Rondebosch, where Agnes was born. Later moved to Highfield House at the top of Strand St., later to Warren St., and still later to “Kingston”, Gilmone Rd.

In keeping with many documents I have seen written by JC Berrangé, the Death Notice is a slap-dash document and contributes to the obfuscation which surrounds Family names. It is written in a poor hand, paying little heed to accuracy nor convention with regards to lineage. See “The Serrurier Family Tree” for lineage.

 

DFB was the 7th child and s.o. Anthonie Berrangé and Elisabeth Fleck of Delft; and is described on his marriage certificate as “Auditeur Militair by t Garricockalhier”. He became a well-respected Cape Town attorney/advocate. He was President of the Orphan Chamber and held an Doctor of Laws (LLD) according to his Death Notice [MOOC 6/9/36  No.7927].

His death notice is extremely confusing, listing grandchildren as minor offspring together with his own live children [MOOC 6/9/172  No.7626].

 

The Death Notice of Johanna Francina Pentz [MOOC 6/9/71  No.3326], written and signed by J C Berrangé (her husband) lists 9 children alive at the time (denoted thus **).
