For more than a century the glimpse of the red, Victorian pitched roof and white wrap around verandas, visible for a mere second through the cluster of trees, have captured the imagination of everyone that travelled past. The stately homestead, observed even from a distance, is a testimony of a remarkable tale of a family of pioneers that settled and shaped our place as we live here today.
The history of the Erasmus family meanders through the documented milestones of early South Africa and its first struggle to tame the land. It begun around 1688 in the Cape with a young adventurer named Pieter Erasmus, aged 19, that arrived in the Cape from Rotterdam and settled on a farm “Groenkloof” in Drakenstein. In 1691 he married Maria Elisabeth Joosten and they had six children. Five generations later did his descendant, Daniel Jacobus Erasmus, later fondly referred to as “Oupa Swartkoppies” respond to the initial call of independence and participated in the Great Trek and finally staked a claim on the land that is present-day Centurion. He settled on a farm and called it Zwartkop.
Rasmus Elardus Erasmus, aka Dubbele, was a young lad of eleven years old during the pioneering wanderlust of his older brother and parents during the Great Trek. Once he came of age he settled on Brakfontein and married Louisa Catharina Erasmus. They had ten healthy children.
