Three different languages or cultures. Welcome to SA!
Strange you say that. My first thought here was that it was a foreign language but it’s all in Afrikaans. The “font” just makes it look like Dutch or something like that. But from Mallison being her maiden name, it appears that she was an English woman who married an Afrikaner.
So Afrikaans, English and French.
no French here… van Wyk is of Dutch origin but in the early 1900s, Afrikaans was already being spoken. Do you know the origin of Mallinson?
Little do you know… I’m cheating. “Nee” is French. Doesn’t really count, so you’re right really! Mallinson must be English, that’s all I can say.
Chris’s ancestor? You never know!
For sure. All the van Wyks in SA are descendants of the first van Wyks to come to SA from 1652, although back then, the spelling was van Wijk.
Bloody hell, you know your stuff!
