Historical: 1870. In 'Jan Christian SMUTS, by his son J.C.SMUTS' pub 1952, his son describes his ancestry as follows: 

pp6 His christian names he inherited from his maternal grandfather Jan Christian de VRIES. Like his grandfather, he spelt Christian with one "a". pp 7 Jacobus Abraham Smuts, my parternal grandfather, was a man of some prominance in these parts, for he was a member of the old Cape Legislature or supremem parliament of the province. he was the sixth generation of Smutses to be born in the Cape, he was almost pure Dutch extraction. The first Smuts to settle in the Cape was Michiel Cornelis who came out from Zeeland in the service of the Dutch East India company in 1692. My fathers mother was plump Catherina (Cato) Petronella de Vries, a sister of Bodewyn, the local padre. She was the seventh generation descendant of Jacob Cloete who arrived in 1652 with Van Riebeecks's entourage, and in old age was murdered on a farm by natives. In Ouma Cato's veins was about one-sixth French blood, which perhaps accounts for her mercurial & impressionable temperament. Boplaas was, in the 1870's, considered to be quite an attractive farm, lying high on the sloping ground above Kasteel . . .

'========= SMUTS Michiel Cornelisz E-mail Print PDF 30 NOVEMBER 1999 Michiel Cornelisz SMUTS het met sy vrou Cornelia EENMAAL (In die amptelike & kerkregisters van die Kaap is haar van gewoonlik na EENMAAL verbuig, maar selfs vorme soos EENMAN & HOUTMAN kom voor) aan die Kaap geland. Sy was die dogter van Hermanus EMAEL en Catharina SPIETS (van die nabygeleë dorpie EMAEL). Hulle het waarskynlik in die periode 1696 en 1697 saam met hulle drie kinders, Adriaan, Hermanus en Cornelis aan die Kaap voet aan wal gesit.

Smuts was van die dorpie, "Loon Opsant", in die provinsie Brabant afkomstig, en sy "n "jonge dogter van die dorpie Simpelvelt, maar woonagtig in Maastricht". Teen 1694 het hulle na Sluis in Seeus-Vlaandere verhuis, waar die 2de kind, Hermanus, gebore is. Kort daarna moes hulle na Middelburg in Seeland vertrek het, want die derde kind, Cornelis, is daar gebore. Van Middelburg af het die stamvader met sy jong gesin die lang en gevaarlike seereis na die Kaap aangedurf om hom hier as vryburger te kom vestig. Cornelia was ongeveer 40 jaar oud en Michiel nie veel ouer nie. Albei van hulle was mense uit "n eenvoudige stand en ongeletterd. Dit is interessant om daarop te let dat Michiel nie "n van gehad het nie. In 1707 verskyn hy in die Kaapse Monsterrolle as Michiel Cornelisz SMITS, en die jaar daarna as Michiel Cornelisz SMUTS -- "n van wat hy daarna behou het.(Sien nota) Waarom die stamvader vir hom die familienaam SMUTS gekies het, bly "n raaisel. Die naam kom tot vandag toe nêrens in Nederland voor nie, daarenteen is SMITS "n bekende en geëerde Nederlandse familienaam. Of die stamvader na willekeur die van SMITS gekies het, en of daar enige verband met die familie SMITS bestaan het, is "n saak waaroor daar slegs gegis kan word. Cornelia is in 1744 oorlede.

b1 Adriaan * Europa 1686 = 6 Sep 1686 NG Kerk, Maastricht, Nederland.

Die volgende Kinders is in die Kaap gebore: Johannes, Nicolaas (1699), Michiel (1702) en Catharina (1704).

In 1700 het hulle "n erf van Jan Siek in Kaapstad gekoop.

Generaal Jan Smuts was van die Michiel-tak.

Michiel is in 1711 oorlede. Op 9 Augustus 1711 is Cornelia weer getroud met Heinrich Schreuder (Kyk ook onder Heinrich Schreuder).
