About Andries Marthinus Theunis Steyn

I think my Oupa was named after his father and the reason for thinking this was that he had lost two brothers in the concentration camp. Possibly one of them was the eldest son and as my Oupa was born after the war he was then given his name.


Four children were born of the marriage of my grandparents.

The first was Andries Marthinus Theunis Steyn. If you look at my Oupas sister Drienie's children you will see her eldest son was Andries Marthinus Theunis Steyn.... And her Daughter was Aletta Sophia...

To collaborate this thinking the second son Deiderik Arnoldus de Beer Steyn was named after his wife's father.

When it came to my mother he did not have the heart to call her Jacoba as she was such a beautiful baby and Jacoba just didn't do it for him, so he broke tradition and chose Esther from the bible, Elizabeth is a family name on the de beers side and possibly on the Steyn side as well.

Unfortunately my Aunt the youngest was saddled with both grandmothers names. Eunice Jacoba Aletta Steyn, Jacoba maternal and Aletta Paternal grandmothers

It's a pity this tradition was never mentioned to us as I would have followed the tradition.

He founded and managed the "Gebedskring.
