About the de Villiers surname

Hellio I am a descendant of Davit Hendrik de Villiers of Durbanville . He was my great great great grandfather. His daughter, Jonanna Hermina de Villiers, married my great great grandfather, the Hon Charles Pritchard and their daughter, Anne Pritchard was my great grandmother. She married the Rev John Eedes, my great grandfather.

I would like to discover Davit Hendrik's descendancy from the original three de Villiers brothers who came to SA as Huguenots. I would also like to know the connection to Lord Henry de Villiers of Wynberg, who is descended from Pierre de Villiers, one of the original three Huguenot brothers.
