Jacques MALAN, gebore 1665, was 'n Franse Hugenoot van Saint-Martin-de-la-Brasque, wat in 1688 op die skip Berg China in SA aangekom het. In 1699 is hy getroud met Elizabeth (Isabeau) le LONG, weduwee van Jean Jourdan. Hy het eers in Hottentots Holland gewoon, en was lid van die kollege van landdros en heemrade van Stellenbosch. Toe Elizabeth in oorlede is in 1736, het hulle die plaas De Faisante Kraal aan die Bot rivier en 'n ander in Hottentots Holland besit.

After the Second World War, this fissure amongst the white Drakenstein population could be well illustrated in one Drakenstein family – the Malan’s, who were Huguenot descendents.

Jacques Malan a Huguenot married the wife of a fellow traveller who had come over on the ship Berg China, after he had died. This was the widow Jourdaan who came to own the farm La Motte (subsequently Bo-La Motte) in 1713.

Malan was a supporter of Henning Huysing and Adam Tas. After Willem Adriaan van der Stel was successfully impeached and deported, Malan purchased a portion of Vergelegen - Willem Andriaan’s estate. After acquiring this farm, called Morgenstêr, Malan joined the groupl of more wealthy farmers headed by Huysing and Tas as he purchased a number of farms throughout the Colony. He died in 1642 and the Malan family proliferated and prospered.

The Mallans

There are three Mallans living in and around Saint Martin de la Brasque:

  • i. Pierre Mallan is married to Isabeau Richarde.
  • ii. Anthoine Mallan is married to Isabeau Verdette and they have a little daughter.
  • iii. The third is Jacques Mallan, cousin of Pierre and Anthoine. He is as yet unmarried.

The unmarried Jacques Mallan will become the progenitor of all the Malans in South Africa, a number of whom will play central political roles in South Africa centuries later. http://members.shaw.ca/cliffwoodfogge/Documents/China4thEdition.pdf

Jacques Mallan in Boucher

The Cape settler of 1688, Jacques Mallan (Malan), born about the year 1672, has been described as the brother of Jean, Henri and Barthelemy Mallan of Merindol. While these names appear in the local church registers, it must be remembered that there were Mallans in many of the villages in this part of Provence. Moreover, Jacques Malian called his Drakenstein farm La Motte, a circumstance which suggests that he came from La Motte-d'Aigues. Another family farm name at the Cape was Saint-Martin, indicative perhaps of connections with Saint- Martin-de-la-Brasque. There were certainly Mallans in plenty at both villages in the later seventeenth century. Many were agricultural workers and one at least, Francois Mallan of La Motte, was a weaver. No trace of Jacques Mallan’s birth has come to light, but the Christian names of the Cape settler and of his second son are to be found among the Mallans of La Motte and Saint-Martin. There were travailleurs, or husbandmen Jacques and Andre Mallan at Saint-Martin-de-la-Brasque, while at La Motte-d’Aigues we find a small landowner Jacques Mallan in 1684 and in the previous year the farm workers Daniel and Antoine, sons of the late Pierre Mallan. It is interesting to note that in 1701 two Mallan brothers of Saint-Martin-de-la-Brasque, Daniel and Paul, unenthusiastic converts to Catholicism, approached the authorities with regard to the detention of the property of a third brother Jacques, a fugitive. The Merindol Mallans were doubtless related to those in the Aigues valley, if only distantly, but the evidence that Jacques Mallan of Drakenstein was from Merindol is inconclusive. • M.
