About Booij Booijsen, SV/PROG

Boij Boijesz (Boy Booysen) from Barlt [Barent/Baxend according to some sources], Dithmarschen in Germany arrived at the Cape of Good Hope in 1686, after which he was set free by his employer (the Dutch East India Company) on 31 Dec 1868 after only 3 months and 6 days. He was awarded the farm Optenhorst in 1693. JG le Roux states in Noorder-Paarl ‎(part of the series Ons Drakensteinse Erfgrond, published by the Drakensteinse Heemkring)‎: "Hierdie plaas is in 1713 toegeken aan Booy Booysen, oorspronklik van Barlt, 'n dorpie in die deel van Holstein langs die Noordsee bekend as Ditmarschen. Hy was reeds in 1688 'n burger van Drakenstein en in 1713 'n bejaarde persoon van 73. Binne twee maande nadat Optenhorst aan hom toegeken is, verkoop hy die helfte daarvan aan Jean Louis du Plessis, tweede seun van die stamvader Charl Prieur du Plessis. Jean Louis noem sy deel van die plaas Olyfboom, maar koop in 1716 ook die oorblywende deel van Optenhorst van Booysen sodat die plaas weer verenig is"

Boy died 1743 at the age of 103, at Stellenbosch where he was also a district councilor.

The muster roll of 1702 for Drakenstein shows that Boy Boijsz & Harmina van Nes had 5 children http­://­www­.­eggsa­.­org­/­transcriptions­/­monsterrollen­/­1702­/­monsterrol_23_jan_1702_drakenstein­.­htm­ while the one for the Cape shows Boy Boyse en Harmina van Es 5 k http­://­www­.­eggsa­.­org­/­transcriptions­/­monsterrollen­/­1702­/­monsterrol_23_jan_1702_caab­.­htm­ The one for 1695 shows a Boy Boijsz van Baxend & Hermina van Eb 3 k.
