About Louis de Péronne, SV/PROG

South-west of Ghent in Flanders is the village of Nazareth, given in Cape documents as the home of Louis de Peronne, sometimes confused with Louis de Berault, Pierre Simond’s brother-in-law. Suggestions that Nazareth is a corruption of Mazeres, or of Saint-Nazaire, seem inappropriate.There is much about this settler’s contacts to suggest that he came from the region discussed in this chapter. The surname had been encountered among fugitives from the neighbourhood of Sedan and the town of Peronne on the Somme in Picardy may indicate the original family source. Peronne sailed for the Cape as a soldier on the Eemland in 1687, leaving the company’s service four years later. He was for a time a shepherd with Hans Claasen and on October 19, 1692 married Marie le Fevre, widow of Charles Prevost and of Heinrich Eekhoff of Essen. Peronne must also have been previously married. He was described as having a wife and three children in 1690. Did he perhaps leave his family in Europe? It was reported in May 1694 that he had, as a company servant, made provision for a wife in the United Provinces, although he denied all knowledge of this. Was there perhaps a wrong entry in the books of the company’s pay department? * Boucher.M (1981). French speakers at the Cape: The European Background. Pretoria, UNISA.
