Volgens Japie Coetzee op Genforum: In sy boek Stamregister van die Malherbes in Suid-Afrika (John Malherbe, Kaapstad; 1974) skryf G.H. Malherbe op bl. 2 en 3: "Dit word algemeen aangeneem dat die stamvadr, Gideon, uit Normandië, in die noorde van Frankryk, gekom het...Hoe lank Gideon in Ndl. was voordat hy in 1688 na die Kaap gekom het, is...nie bekend nie. Botha [C. Graham Botha] meld in bg. werk [Die Kaapse Hugenote] (bl. 43) dat daar al Malherbes in Dordrecht was sedert 1618. In Ndl. word die vanne "Quatgras" en "Onkruydt" aangetref...maar of dit oorspronklik Ndl. vanne of vertalings van "Malherbe" is, weet ons nie...Die oorsprong van die van [Malherbe] is nie seker nie, hoewel dit algemeen aangeneem word dat dit "onkruid" beteken, en bestaan uit die Latynse woorde "male" (sleg) en "herba" (gras of onkruid)...".

Malherbes in Boucher

The refugee Gedeon Malherbe was a bachelor of twenty-five when he sailed on the Voorschooten. He was among a group of refugees at Delft who on September 21, 1687 appeared before the celebrated pastor and Huguenot historian Elie Benoist, once minister at Alengon in Normandy, to make public reparation of their fault in abjuring Calvinism before escaping from France.39 Gedeon Malherbe was named among those who had worshipped at the little church of Laons on the road from Dreux to Brezolles in the Thimerais. This wooded region between the Avre and the Eure came under Norman jurisdiction, although it had more in common with the Perche to the west and like its neighbour was renowned for the breeding of the heavy percheron cart-horse. Its three Protestant churches at Laons, Favieres and La Ferte-Vidame formed an outlying part of the Beauce colloquy of the synodal province for the Ile-de-France and the north-east and were sometimes united under a single pastor in the seventeenth century. The seigneurial church at Favieres was one of the few congregations which did not lose its temple at the revocation. It was converted into a barn.40

This was Malherbe country indeed and the name is associated with all three congregations in the Thimerais. Malherbes who attended the Favieres temple are to be found in Catholic records after the signing of the Edict of Fontainebleau in October 1685.41 However in the inventories of the possessions of Calvinist refugees from the Verneuil election of the Alen?on generality appears the name of a merchant Gedeon Malherbe, with wife and four children, of Les Ressuintes, near the road from La Ferte-Vidame to Senonches.42 On September 1, 1684 a daughter Marie-Elisabeth was born to Gedeon Malherbe and Elisabeth Bernier and christened two days later at L’Aigle. The parents came from La Manceliere, perhaps the hamlet of that name near La Ferte- Vidame.43 It was at this period, on the eve of the revocation, that the closing and demolition of temples and the general harassment of Calvinists were causing a movement of peoples within France and a rising tide of emigration.

The effects of the revocation were fully brought home to the Protestants of Laons in November 1685, when troops employed by Vauban in an abortive attempt to construct a canal from the Eure to Versailles were seconded to the task of conversion. Calvinists were herded together and driven to the church of Saint-Pierre at Dreux, where they were browbeaten into accepting Catholicism.44 Dreux had unhappy memories for reformers. It was here in December 1562 that Conde and Coligny had suffered defeat at the hands of Frangois de Guise. Protestantism was to rise again, but by 1685 its militancy of old had long since disappeared. Among those forced to abjure on November 17, 1685 were Pierre, son of Jean Fouber, and a carter in his employ, the future Drakenstein farmer Gedeon Malherbe.45

After his arrival at the Cape Malherbe married Marie Grillon. Although she did not sail on the Voorschooten she was evidently from same part of France as the settlers aboard that vessel and it is more than likely that she accompanied the Retifs and Pierre Rousseau from the United Provinces.. pp 109-11

...Philippe Drouin.. was the Cape refugee. In his will, proved in September 1702, he names as his heir his true friend Gedeon Malherbe, whom he doubtless knew at Dreux.61 In December 1701 the refugee pastor Henri Rou, formerly at Lorges, sent him a sum of money from the estate of his late father, who had died in France. Philippe Drouin did not live to receive the legacy, however, and it went to Gedeon Malherbe. p113.
