Isak van der Merwe (c11), Schalk‟s eleventh child, was born on 14 May 1711. In 1742 he married his cousin, Cecilia Janse van Rensburg. They farmed in the Ceres district (Koue Bokkeveld) on Modderfontein (-vallei) which had been rented to him by the Company in 1743. Freehold rights to the topmost part of the farm (Bo-plaas) were granted in 1813. This farm is still owned by Isak‟s descendants and has the distinction of the tenth generation of van der Merwes living on it.
