About Cornelis Jansen Bornman

Notas deur David Abraham Swanepoel

‘n CJ Bornman van Vredefort word op etlike plekke genoem sonder volle name. Hierdie persoon doen hom voor as geskikte kandidaat vir hierdie profiel en geen ander kon gevind word tot op hede (2018-05-06) nie. Meer navorsing is nodig vir koppeling bo alle twyfel, synde een aspek van sy lewe as negatief deur baie persone ervaar sal word.

Die onderhawige CJ Bornman was ‘n parlementslid van die onafhanklike Oranje-Vrystaat. Gedurende die Anglo Boere-oorlog was hy ‘n lid van ‘n vredeskomitee, d.w.s ‘n hensopper of joiner.

“Piet de Wet, a former assistant commander-in-chief of the Free State army and a brother of General Christiaan de Wet, mentioned the possibility of peace committees in the Free State to Kitchener. According to Piet de Wet there was a spontaneous desire for peace among a certain section of the Free State population. By 30 December 1900 the following people were serving on the central committee in Kroonstad: Piet de Wet (chairman); EM. Botha, C.J. Bornman and C.J. Cloete, … [1]

“At a delightful soirée on the farm of C.J. Bornman in the Vredefort district, a British officer reports, the host’s daughter and ‘our Captain of Yeomanry’ sang and played.” [2]

Hierdie getuienis ondersteun veral dat dit by die persoon in die inskrywing pas:

  • Dis by Vredefort
  • ‘n Soirée is ‘n aandgeselligheid waartydens musiek gemaak word. Die woord word hoofsaaklik in hoë sosiale kringe gebruik. Bornman en sy familie kan as dit ge-ag word, die Britse soldaat wat dit geraporteer het, is ‘n offisier. Die "Yeomanry" dui ook op offisiere uit 'n grondbesittersklas.
 

“On another occasion we met them on different terms, in Mr. C.J. Bornman's house. Some of his "visitors" were, unfortunately for themselves, found to be English scouts—and became our prisoners. [3]

“The Mayor then put the following resolution, which had been drawn up by Mr. De Wet and ex-Raad member C. J. Bornman :— That this meeting, largely attended by ex-burghers of the late Orange Free State Republic, many of whom took an active part in the war between Great Britain and the ex-Republics until the country had been conquered, having seen and heard of the slanders being circulated in Europe against His Majesty's forces now serving in South Africa,' resolves : That we … [4]. Dis nie bekend of hier verwys word na Cristiaan de Wet of sy joiner broer Piet nie, aangesien ek net ‘n kort uittreksel uit Google Books kon gebruik.

Baltesdrift is suidwes van Vredefort by 27°11'11.0"S 27°08 / -27.186382, 27.143712 . Die sterfplek word egter nie met ‘n eie dokument bevestig nie, dis wel bevestig as die van sy een seun. “Wynberg” vermoed ek is ‘n leesbaarheidsprobleem vir Winburg. Iemand het dus wel ‘n dokument gebruik.
