About Stephanus Sebastiaan Walters, b3

Born on De Tijgerberge, Tygerberg, Durbanville

Died at De Grendal, Malmesbury District

----------------- Stephanus Sebastiaan

Stephanus Sebastiaan married Martha Lombard in 1738 en purchased the farm, De Grendel, in the die Malmesbury district. Stephanus progeny owned several farms in the Malmesbury/Swartland district as well in the Vredenburg and other West Coast areas. Stephanus grandson, Stephanus Sebastiaan, owned the farms Modderasfontein and Bakenfontein and is the only son that continued the Stephanus-Walters family line. It is amazing that the Walters name survived in South Africa since both Nicolaas and Stephanus had only one grandson who had children to carry on with the Walters tradition name explaining the relative small number of Walters families in South Africa today compared to the other well-known families such as Van Der Merwe or Du Toit. Stephanus Grandson had 6 sons which carried the Walters name, five was borne from his first wife, Catharina Basson and one from his second wife, Leonora de Clerk. His son from the first marriage, Samuel Antonie, became the owner of Bakenfontein, which still belongs to his descendants. The brothers Loedolf Kirsten and Samuel Antonie, 9th generation Walters’s, still farm on Bakenfontein. Stephanus son, Matthys Michiel, owned the farms Doornfontein near Malmesbury and his descendants farm on the farms Waterklip en Noodhulp near Vredenburg. Matthys Michiel’s grandson, Schalk Willem, moved to the Orange Free State and became one of the first Walters the live north of the Orange River (The Walters family did not take part in the Great trek to the north in 1838). Schalk settled in the Boshof region of the Free State in 1875. Schalk son, Johan Matthys died in 1901 as a two year old in the atrocious British concentration camp near Brandfort. Stephanus grandson, Coenraad Hendrik, (son of Coenraad Hendrik and brother of Matthys Michiel above) descendants also move to the Free State and later to the Transvaal while his grandson, Casparus Andries (son of Jan Michiel) settled in the Franschoek area. The descendants from Joseph Adriaan, Stephanus son from his second marriage to Leonora De Clerk, settled in the Witbank/Middelburg in Transvaal.
