Die Hugenote van SA 1688-1988 - 300 jaar deur Prof Pieter Coertzen p164 - Gabriel le Roux 1669-1711 kom van Blois(Orleans in Frankryk aan boord die Voorschoten in 1688. Hy vestig hom te La COncorde langs die Bergrivier in die Paarl. Getroud met Marie-Catherine le Fevre (1686-1782). Hulle het 4 seuns en 1 dogter. Hy verdrink in die Bergrivier of Wildepaardsrivier saam met sy kleinneef Jean. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------- Gabriel Johannes Le Roux en sy kleinneefJean het in 1688 vanaf Blois, ‘n provinsie in Normandië, Frankryk, na Suid-Afrika gekom.

Gabriel en Jean het eers na Delft in Nederland gevlug. Die lotgevalle van die res van die familie is onbekend.

Gabriel en Jean herroep op 25 Julie 1687 hul gedwonge aanvaarding van die roomse geloof en sluit aan by die gereformeerde Waalse Gemeente te Delft. Volgens C. Graham Botha in “Die Kaapse Hugenote” het die fluitskip, “Voorschoten”, twee-en-twintig Franse vlugtelinge, waaronder Jean en Gabriel le Roux na die Kaap gebring. Die skip was maar 130 Hollandse voet lank. Dit was die eerste skip wat vlugtelinge vervoer het, en het Holland op 31 Desember 1687 verlaat. Dus was Gabriel toe maar sowat 17½ jaar oud.

Op 13 April 1688 moes die Voorschoten as gevolg van ‘n sterk Suid-oostewind in Saldanhabaai anker. Toe Goewerneur Simon van der Stel hiervan hoor, het hy die “Jupiter” met vars lewensmiddele daarheen gestuur.

Die plaas La Concorde, nou in die dorp Paarl en ook waar die hoofgeboue, administratief van die KWV en ander staan, is in 1689 aan hom in eiendom gegee Die datum van die grondbrief is 03.03.1692. Gabriel het nie baie lank op La Concorde gebly nie. In 1695 trek hy na Salomonsvlei langs sy broer se plaas, Parys. Volgens die inventaris en taxatie vorm is hy by sy dood op Parys woonagtig. Dit word beweer dat die oorspronklike woonplek van Salomon de Gournay op Salomonsvlei ook deur Gabriel bewoon is, en is eers in die 20ste eeu totaal vernietig.
