About Jan Hendrik Bosch

Born out of wedlock, but became the progenitor of the main Bosch bloodline in South Africa. Was still alive in 1798 census in Graaff-Reinet, but date of death unknown. His sons were nomadic pastoralists ("trekboere") that left the Western Cape before 1800 and farmed in the Eastern Cape areas of Cradock, Albany and Somerset East, ahead of the large migration ("Groot Trek") that occurred between 1835 and 1846.
