In 1728 a large tract of land which fell within the very large boundaries of Swellendam district was let to a Mr. P Joubert.  The area soon attracted other migrant farmers who required grazing for their sheep and by 1800 many of them settled permanently on these pieces of land, which they now purchased outright from the Government. The names of the original farms are still much in evidence as districts, eg. Roodezant, Le Chasseur, Retreat, Noree, Goree, Vink Rivier, Willem Nels River, Klaasvoogds, Goudmyn, Vlolikheid and De Hoop Between 1728 and 1790, the particular farm Roodezand changed hands several times and in the 1840’s belonged to Johannes W van Zijl.  Church services were held in his home when every three months Dr William Robertson, the Dutch Reformed Church Minister at Swellendam, visited the area.
