About Hermanus Philippus Grobler, b6c2d6e8

Hermanus Philippus Grobler [Manie] (*11.01.1829) (≈06.04.1829 Cradock) Hermanus het as jongseun die Slag van Bloedrivier oorleef. Hy was lid van die Transvaalse Volksraad en het aan die oorlog teen die Mapog stam en die Burgeroorlog deelgeneem. Hermanus het as wapensmid van die Dorslandtrek opgetree en was lid van die Dorslandtrek Kommissie wat met die Portugese koloniale regering van Angola onderhandel het. Hy het 'n belangrike en omvangryke deel in die ontwikkeling van die Afrikaner-gemeenskap op Humpata gehad (Sept. 1880).

Note: It is sometimes mentioned that Hermanus's youngest child, Pieter Ignatius Grobler (*28.04.1881 Humpata, Angola) was the very first Boer child born in Angola. This is incorrect, there were a few Boer children born before Pieter such as Jan Johannes Alberts (*28.01.1881 Humpata, Angola), the son of the 1st Dorsland Trek Leader, Gert Alberts (*1836) and his 2nd wife, Petronella Francina Le Grange.
