Numbers and numbering system.
Each person is given a number. The first number is the generation after Wolfgang born c1540 on page 1. The second set of numbers is the 'child number'. The author D.P. Leibbrandt's number is 13.24123222, the 13th generation after Wolfgang and is the 2nd child, of the 2nd child, of the 2nd child, of the 3rd child and so on. For large families of more than 9 children, dots are used to clarify: e.g. Ursula Leibbrandt 11.2258.12.22 is the second child of the second child of the twelfth child, of the eighth child etc.
There are three 'lines' of South African Leibbrandts. The Johann Sebastiaan line with a number **.22****, the Johann Michael line with a number **.24***, and the Johann Conrad line with a number **.25****. Thus the relationship can be seen at a glance at two Leibbrandts numbers.
The POS NO relates to the Appendices as well as the above numbering system. Thus BANTJES Eliza Jane POS. Number BAF 1858 page A25, one would find in Appendix A page A25, with a heading BAF 1858. Similarly for the other Appendices B, C, D.
2nd Marriage date etc.
Errors and Omissions.
While every effort has been made to find errors, some may still exist.
Omissions are largely as a result of missing information on death notices and other documents. Word of mouth is very unreliable, and dates given are usually approximate. The use of 'c' (meaning circa) notes an estimated date. Children are usually two years apart and the Generation Gap graph below, has been very useful in tracing a father or grandfather.

Taking only those people where the both the birth and death dates are known, the average age was found to be 55 years. People born after 1929 were also excluded as a significant number of them are still alive. The average was constant, except for the period prior to 1800 where the average was 62, but that could be distorted by inaccurate data.
People who died in the last century lived longer lives, but many also died in the Boer war which dropped their average.
People who lived past 80 years are listed below. Since women have been known to live longer than men in the past, and men outnumber women 128 to 84 in our sample, this has decreased the average.

This graph is a result of analysis from the Leibbrandt family tree, showing the minimum, average and maximum age of a father at the time of the birth of his children. It is an aid to tracing the father using the birth date of a child. For example, given a first child’s birth year of 1832, we can expect to find a father aged about 32 years at the time (born 1800) on average, with a minimum age of 21 (born 1811) and a maximum of 40 (born 1792).
Confirmation can possibly be obtained by checking the custom of naming the child after the grandfather/grandmother.
The Leibbrandt Coat Of Arms.
The above coat of arms was designed with all Leibbrandts in mind, by [13.24123222] Douglas "Paul" Leibbrandt. Legally, the owner and his offspring can use the coat of arms. As the legal owner he has no objection to any true Leibbrandt using his coat of arms. A "true" Leibbrandt being anyone born with the surname Leibbrandt.
The flaming sword in the center symbolizes the meaning of the name. 'The People of the Burning Sword'. The lions are the Bavarian lions, note the left-hand one has two tails. The lion above the helm is in honour of the Leibbrandt spelled Luitprand, a Bishop of Crexaona, the lion of Lombardy. To him we owe a history, and the origin of the name, because the King of Lombardy, Luitprand (712-714 A D) probably went into battle with 'a burning sword'. Read the next section on the History of the Leibbrandts.
The motto 'Ingenuitas' is Latin for ingenuity. Most Leibbrandts seem to have this quality in abundance.
History of The Leibbrandts.
The importance of a surname only became necessary when there were too many people of the same first name. This came about in approximately the eleventh century and people were named after places, trades, colour, and anything that would give that person a distinct identification as a second name.
The surname Leibbrandt has its origin in the Germanic people that moved from what is now known as Bavaria to north Italy Lombardy. The Lombards or Langobardi (named after the long spears they carried or for their long beards) originally occupied the region of the lower Elbe. They were first mentioned in history in connection with the Roman invasion in the first century. The Lombards pressed further south into the Danube valley where they overthrew the Gepidae (568 AD) and invaded northern Italy under their king Alboin. They established themselves by further conquests over most of Italy. In the time of queen Theodelinda (600 AD) they embraced Catholicism and began to build many churches and monasteries. They founded cities and carried on extensive trade. Among the most powerful kings were Agilulf (592-615 AD), Rothri (636- 652 AD) who collected their laws, and Luitprand (712-714 AD) Luitprand was able conquer the whole of Italy for a short period, and was able to make a non-aggression pact with Charles Martel (714-741 AD)
The learned people were the monks and clergy and spelling of names was phonetic. After consulting with linguists, the conclusion was reached that Luitprand and Leibbrand 'sound' the same or are variations of the same name. Notice that the 't' was left off deliberately as, documents in 1700 have been found without the 't'.
The name was probably in two syllables, ‘Luit' meaning a burning torch, and 'brand' which is a sword in old German. Thus Leibbrand meant people of the 'Burning Sword'.
There was another Luitprand who was the Bishop of Cremona and he was very active as a chronicler or a historian, and he contributed to the history of the period. His main work was written in Latin and called 'Antapodosis'. He also was sent to Constantinople to make a marriage treaty for Otto 11 (968 AD).
The history of South Africa shows that a Leibbrandt was at the Cape in 1658. A letter was written by Leibbrandt dated 13th December 1658, at the time of Van Riebeeck, to the Council of India. He wrote in Dutch,
'In our opinion the Colony should be worked and established by Europeans and not slaves, as our nation is so constituted that as soon as they have the convenience of a slave they become lazy and unwilling to put forth their hands to work, and this is a great failing in India with the Dutch.'
No further trace of this Leibbrandt has been found. The Leibbrandt family in South Africa consists of three branches:
1) [7.22] Johann Sebastiaan came to S.A. in 1774.
2) [8.241] Johann David, a nephew of Johann Sebastiaan, came in 1799.
3) [8.252] Conrad Friedrich, another nephew of Johann Sebastiaan, arrived in circa 1805.
All the above came from Leonberg near Stuttgart.
Some Interesting Leibbrandts.
Having made a study of the character of many Leibbrandts there are some conclusions that can be drawn.
The majority are just ordinary good citizens, but what stands out are three characteristics.
We have two of the clan whose lives are common knowledge and both belong to the [7.22] Johann Sebastiaan line.
Genealogists may be aware of [11.225811] Hendrik Carel Vos as he was South Africa's first Archivist. One could read with interest a write up of his history in the Cape archives and as a Minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, how he was given, in the modern idiom a redundancy package of 2500 pounds Sterling because of his outspoken beliefs. He also refused to retract his statements. His work as an Archivist was prodigious and without doubt he laid a good foundation for the archives. He was also a linguist of note speaking reading and writing Dutch, German, and English. Being a minister of the church he was also versed in Greek and Hebrew.
The second character of a more notorious nature was [12.2291213] Sidney Robey, whose escapades during the second world war are well recorded in Hans Strydom's book The Forth Reich. He felt so strongly about Nazi philosophy he named one of his sons Izan (Nazi reversed.) see [13.22912132] He was an excellent boxer, outspoken and brave beyond belief.
The other two branches also yield their notable characters and solid citizens from all walks of life. Medical practitioners, engineers, lawyers, and competent artisans.
Sadly, war with all its horrors and faults had Leibbrandts on both sides of the conflict. The Anglo Boer war had, like Christiaan de Wet and his brother Piet , brother fighting brother.
As the Leibbrandts have been in South Africa for many centuries they are related to most other branches of the old Cape families On the distaff side surnames such as Rissik, Kruger * Ferreira de Wet, Barnard, Botha, and even Smith are evident. In fact Agnes Rissik, whose father was Johann Rissik and her mother [10.2254.10] Maria Magdalena Wilhelmina *1867 +1947, has contributed to the Leibbrandt family tree for her branch. The other two lines or branches have been documented by the author with an index of the distaff side. By 'distaff' is meant all ladies that married Leibbrandts and men who married Leibbrandt ladies.
Sportsmen related to Leibbrandts by marriage, the Rowan brothers Athol and Eric, and the swimmer Terry COLLARD.
This research is a one-name study, but one is conscious at all times that the distaff side is just as important a part of everyone's genes. Most times the mothers have a more difficult task of bringing up a family, and this is evident when we see the death notice of the father dying at the age of 45 years.
Thus this study has over 400 names in the 'distaff' index, not many repeated, and very few males.
The German Leibbrandts.
This research was carried out by a German that can read the old German script, and this is how the third line of Johann Conrad’s relationship was found.

Stadtarchiv Leonberg, Inventuren und Teilungen 22/11/1775-29/11/1776
A volume including probate records of the citizen of Leonberg. The pages have a folio numbering (one number for two pages).
Pages 250-388, dated 13 May 1776:
Probate record of Johann Georg Leibbrand, citizen of Leonberg, tenant of the manorial estate at Pfäffingen, district of Tübingen, who has died on 28 April there, after a short disease of the chest.
Names of the heirs:
The widow was at first married with Michael Müller, miller at the Schweizermühle mill in Eltingen. The following children sprang off from this marriage;
The widow had no children of her second marriage with the deceased.
The proceedings then list the entire estate in detail, i.e. all real estate and movables piece by piece, the debts to pay and the debts to collect. I have not copied this information.
There are several entries whereas Joseph and his mother Anna Maria have been in prison in Tübingen for a while.
Pages 368ff.: the assignment of the share of Conrad Leibbrand. He claims a share of 947 florins and is satisfied by the following items: an eighth of half of a house, yard and barn in the Klostergasse lane, valued 100 f 1., four fields and a meadow; a song-book, cloths, bed sheets, linen, brass tools, tin tools, copper and iron tools (all listed in detail), cabinets, barrels and belongings, and household items.
Final remark: The entire probate record extends over 276 pages and it would be quite time-consuming to evaluate the whole thing, but gives very good information about Johann Georg Leibbrand and his family. Xerox copies cannot be made because the pages are bound together closely, but it may be possible to take a microfilm of these pages and make reader-printer-reproductions.

Married twice. First wife was the daughter of Ignatius Theodorus MULLER and Hester Magdalena MULLER born KRITZINGER. Johan's wife Hester died in her son in laws house 39 Roeland Street Cape Town. Johan, a widower at the age of 43 years, married a second time to Maria Magdalena BEYERS. Evidence shows that this Maria Magdalena BEYERS is not the same person above (Hendrik 's wife) due to two reasons. Hendrik's wife was 'Anna ' and Johan David 's death notice signed M M Leibbrandt dated 1908. Anna died in 1905.
Remarkably the handwriting (signature ) looks identical and all other factors, age etc, would tie in with given data. Data such as two names the same and surname BEYERS the same.
The name De Leeu, given to Johan David 's last child suggests that Maria Magdalena 's mothers maiden name was DE LEEU.

Born in Johannesburg at the Kensington Sanatorium. Educated at Malvern Inter High. A choir boy at the Anglican Church. First job obtained with the help of cousin George (12.2412323) who worked for the E.S.C. The next employment was also with cousin George's help and was with the S.A. Permanent Building Society The S.A. Perm was a place of work for Gerald on an on / off basis for many years. During the war years Gerald joined firstly the Transvaal Scottish, where he had an embarrassing moment. In 1939-1945 one had to volunteer for service outside S A (the Red Tab).Just prior to the call for volunteers he had an accident with a drunk driver and had to wait for the case to be called. This, unfairly as was later shown, was labelled by the C 0 as unpatriotic. The case was called, Gerald was paid damages, and then he joined the I.L.H. with a Red Tab. Gerald like many Leibbrandts was an excellent marksman. He came back from serving in Egypt to Wits Command and in 1945 after demobilization worked for S A Perm again.
In 1946 Gerald married Marjorie SURGEON. Gerald and Marjorie managed (took over) the running of Durban View Hotel, for two years. This was the Hotel 'stage' as Gerald worked at Umhlanga Rocks hotel, then Sea Sands and back to Durban View. Many building projects were completed by Gerald on the Durban View, with great skill and ingenuity. In 1967 Gerald again joined the Perm, built two houses and then retired in 1983, to his and Marjorie's home at 41 Chartwell Drive Umhlanga.

This man was well known as the Nazi agent in S A during the 2nd world war. This part of the history can be read in Hans Strydom's book 'The Fourth Reich'. He went to school at Greys College where he for a dare jumped out of a second floor window for a 'tickey'. The second jump for a 'sixpence' ended in a broken leg. Never a man of learning but brave and strong beyond belief.
He won a silver medal for boxing at the Olympic Games of 1936 in the light-heavyweight division. In the bout for gold, he fought on fearlessly with a broken hand but lost the match. After returning to SA he turned professional and won the heavyweight division.
He was caught as a Nazi agent an sentenced to death subsequently to be commuted to life in prison with hard labour. He was released in 1948 when the Nationalist government came to power. Note his son Izan is Nazi spelt backwards. Robey's mother Susan Marguarite JOYCE was a cousin of William JOYCE (lord Haw-Haw) of Nazi radio fame during the 1939-1945 World War.

[9.2258] Hendrik Carel Vos *31/12/1837. +1/1/1911.
Hendrik married Sara SINCLAIR in 1860. They had 12 children, 7 sons and 5 daughters, of whom 8 survived infancy. Hendrik, the eighth child of wine merchant Johann Sebastiaan *1793 and Alida FISCHER, was educated at the South African College Cape Town. The University of Utrecht in Holland awarded his Theology degree in August 1859. He returned to the Cape got married and was inducted as minister of the N G Kerk Victoria West on 6.5.1860. Hendrik was a very active member of the ministry, as he established a congregation at Canarvon in 1875 and another at Prieska in 1878. His ministry at Victoria West however lead to dissention due to his activities in the liberal school of ministers. Other members of the School were T F Burgers (later President of the Transvaal Republic) L S and J J Kotze, and S P Naude. All these were contemporaries of Utrecht University Hendrik's views were unacceptable to the majority of the congregation. He was outspoken and the trouble became serious in 1870. His was co-author in three essays entitled 'Gedachten over de roeping der Kerk en de verhouding van den leraar tot zijne gemeente' Cape Town, written for the Christian congress in that year. This caused a storm amongst the clergy and the congregation but Hendrik was inflexible and would not retract his views. Permission was granted to form a second congregation, but this was abandoned and the congregation at Victoria West asked him to resign. He was offered 2500 pounds Stirling as 'compensation' He Resigned on 25.6.1877. Hendrik was well liked by some of the congregation and he was presented with an address thanking him for his good work in 18 years with the community.
This apparent reversal led to his 'real' work as the first Archivist, as he was appointed in preference to another past time custodian; C M Theal. His work output was prodigious and spurred on by rival Theal he wrote an enormous number of articles and précis for the Archives. If fact he laid the basis for the present Archives in Cape Town.
Hendrik 's strong points were his energy, honesty outspoken when convinced he was right, and fluency in Dutch English and German. Being a minister of the Church he also had knowledge of Latin and Greek. He retained his friendship with President Burger as on one occasion he baptised Burger's child. Some of Hendrik’s Archives work is the following:
The Government instructed Hendrik to edit the documents related to what is known as the Slachtersnek Rebellion and this was published as 'The Rebellion of 1815, generally known as Slachter's Nek. (Cape Town 1902.)
Hendrik wrote numerous articles for 'Het Zuid-Afrikaansche Tijdschrift', and a series on the hunter and explorer Jacobus Coetzee.
It must be emphasized that the above is just a small sample of the volume of Hendrik's work.
What is not realised is that Hendrik was both librarian and Archivist until seven years before his retirement in 1901 when these two posts were separated. During a small portion of his working life he had temporary assistance, but never the less he was able to classify 3440 documents and these documents were bound between 1881 and 1906. Undoubtedly Hendrik was a giant of a man when one considers the amount of work he accomplished in his lifetime not only for the Cape Archives but also for the outlying districts. His work earned him the title of honorary member of the 'Historische Genootsschap' of Utrecht.
Many references of Hendrik Leibbrandt and his work can be found in the Cape Archives. C J Rossouw wrote 'Die werk van Hendrik Carel Vos Leibbrandt as argivis en Suid Afrikaanse geskiedskrywer' and this is one of the many written monuments of the great South African.
On page iii of this document the author stated some of the characteristics of Leibbrandts, and these points are repeated again and again when one reads and knows some of this clan. Hendrik was probably a good example of what was meant in the remarks.
[11.225544] John Romaine Addison *21/8/1895 +6/6/1983
Romaine was born in Wellington, Cape Province, the only son of Christoffel Johannes *1858 +1919. His education at South African College School extended from 1908 to 1913, and may have known [12.2412322] Douglas Herbert *1897 +1982, the authors father, as he attended the same school over roughly the same period. His daughter Catherine writes as follows.
The Principal of the school Mr William Baxter found him to be an excellent student. In 1913 he wrote the Matriculation examination of the University of the Cape of Good Hope. In 1914 he joined the 5th South African Infantry, and was sent to East Africa.( The East African campaign under General J C Smuts lasted from 1916 till 1917 for most of the forces of South Africa.*) At the end of 1917 he was discharged 'in consequence of being temporarily unfit for Tropical Service, due to Malaria and Dysentery.
In 1916 under special regulations regarding students on active service he obtained his B.A. degree.
In January 1918 he became a Clerk in the Magistrates office in Caledon. As the War was still in progress he, after some time in the Magistrates Office, joined the Heavy Artillery He was sent to England but by the time he arrived there the war had come to a close.
Upon his return to South Africa, he was again on the staff of the Magistrate's office in Caledon, where he remained until he was transferred to Wynberg Cape. At the Wynberg office he acted as Clerk of the Court and Acting Additional Magistrate.
From 1927 to 1940 he was on the relief staff as acting Magistrate and public prosecutor in Ligtenberg, Venterstad, Middelberg, Stellenbosch and De Aar. In 1931 he was awarded the LL.B by the University of South Africa, and subsequently was appointed additional Magistrate in Bloemfontein in 1941.
He married Mary Stiven Pope, born Wilson, in 1940 and later adopted her daughter Shenagh Rainier Pope. His son John was born in Bloemfontein on 9.6.1941. The family was transferred to Graaf Reinet in November 1941, and remained there for four years. Margaret Louise Addison was born 26 Dec 1912, a happy time for all, until the untimely transfer to Upington From a letter addressed to Romaine, dated 30 October 1945 the Chairman of the Native Advisory Board and the Vigilant Committee ( Messrs A W Ramand and S Dan Malunga ) it was apparent that he was held in high esteem by the coloured community for some act of kindness. Quote '...all you did here in the light of our non-Europeans for which you stood bravely in the light of justice to the cost of losing friendship amongst certain prominent citizens especially when you were on the Bench.'
(Authors Remark. This must have been a very unpopular judgement against a prominent member of the European community. For this reason the following quote in one of his references is given below.)
About Romaine Leibbrandt. All those who knew him well found Leibbrandt to be of great integrity and compassion a gentleman, a loyal friend and employee, a quiet man devoted to his family and above all, a man of intelligence with a sound knowledge of the law and a lover of justice, in the pursuit of which he was prepared to make sacrifices.
He was a marked man from then onwards in the Justice Dept. and assessors were appointed to retry his cases. They failed. His daughter Catherine (the contributor of this history) was born in Upington on 12 Jan. 1946.
In April 1946 the family was transferred to Witbank where Romaine took up the senior Magistrates post. Again moved to another post in Nigel in 1951.
He never came to terms with the humiliation he faced during this period, and throughout a long correspondence with the various Secretaries for Justice, he was unable to obtain a satisfactory explanation for the treatment.
He retired as Magistrate in Nigel in August 1955, and moved to Springs, where the children went to school. In July 1955 Romaine petitioned to have his name removed
Romaine petitioned to have his name removed from the Roll of Advocates of the Cape of Good Hope Provincial Division of the Supreme Court. In September of the same year he was admitted as Attorney - Transvaal Provincial Division. From then onwards to 1956 he acted as Assistant to Charles Sherman, a Solicitor in Springs. He practised as an Attorney in Johannesburg, commuting from Springs every day.
In the closing years of his life from 1959 to 1976, he was employed as Archivist in the Law Section of the Natal Archives, Pietermaritzburg. The children completed their schooling in Springs until 1961, and then went to Pietermaritzburg.
He died on the 6th June 1983.
Daughter Catherine stated in her letter,' My father in particular taught me things I value and I have passed on to my children ' and ' he had a lovely sense of humour'.
Authors note. To overlook this mans period of war service would not be correct. He served in the 5th South African Infantry. Private number 13531, 8th Platoon, 13 Company Nyasaland Contingent, under General Northy He was in the peace training Service before joining up on 3rd May 1915. The troops boarded the ship 'Professor Woerman ', sailed up to Beira, where they landed. They then were taken in barges up the Zambezi River to Chindeo and then on to Port Herald in Malawi. Proceeding to Songea in the North of Lake Malawi, the plan was to engage the German forces under General von Lettow Vorbeck. The German general and his forces were 'chased' and never really pinned down during the whole British campaign in East Africa, in fact Von Vorbeck only came in after the Armistice.
Romaine, like hundreds of others, suffered from dysentery malaria fever and hunger while marching in rain and mud. He was sent back to the Union to recover, and given a Certificate of Discharge 28 Aug 1916, for 'being temporarily unfit for tropical service for three months '. These three months were stretched to 30 Nov 1917, due to sickness, until the Proceedings on Discharge finally discharged him. For some strange reason Romaine again joined up to go to France in 1918, and arriving too late to fire a shot was again discharged on 30 Nov 1918.
Authors note. What a pity this man was also 'ahead of his time '
[13.24123222] Douglas Paul *1927
Father Douglas Herbert , an Engineer, was 30 years old when Paul was born in Wynberg Cape Town South Africa. Paul’s mother, a very beautiful woman, had Victor Paul’s elder brother two and a half years before Paul, and three daughters from a previous marriage. All this was prior to any memory recall at the age of three years.
My baptismal certificate certified that I was born on 31st March 1927, baptised in St John 's Church, Wynberg, on the 24th April 1927, Number 7804. One of my sponsors Roux Nel I remember as a close friend of my father. We stayed in Alphen Hill, Wynberg and my father was a Civil Engineer.
The above information gives me 'clues' as to my father and his, what I would call, semi-contempt for religion. He was not a 'Civil' engineer in the strict sense of the word, he was an Electrical Mechanical engineer ! My feeling about that statement was that his thoughts were; 'let us humour these clerics, it does not matter anyway Be that it may, I was branded as an Anglican, and now hope to be a good Methodist’.
First memories are of Durban, 178 Cowey Road, in the year 1930 when I was 3 years old. Two incidents come to mind, and the strong impression remains to this day. I saw a man lying on our spare room bed, dressed in a suit, with his hands crossed on his chest. I said to my Mother something about,' what is the man doing on the bed in the room mummy? ' When she went to look with me in tow, he had gone! The reader can speculate on this, but I am sure children can see, into a spirit world and grownups cannot. Time-wise for the incident, say 30 seconds.
My mother was a heavy smoker, and as we now know what damage it does to passive smokers. I am sure, as a child up to the age of 10 years my very poor health can be laid at the smoking ignorance door with very little doubt. Four years old saw me in hospital with tubercular glands in the stomach causing torsion. Six months later I had to learn to walk again. Schooling was an 'on/off' event until 10 years old I went to Saxonwold School in Johannesburg, without being able to read or write properly and with no knowledge of maths at all.
Learning was achieved through sitting between two other boys, my pals George Duncan and Grant Cowie, and watching them. Needless to say when the public exam of standard 5 arrived I failed after 3 years of schooling. The basics of spelling escaped my learning pattern and on entering high school, standard 6, with the dire consequences of failure ringing in my ears told to me by my father I was at the bottom of the form. Not quite true as Barnie Meyers and myself vied for last place, and I usually won. Barnie turned out as a top class student, and was head master of the very prestigious Jewish High School, Kind David in Johannesburg when I last heard of him.
Both Saxonwold and high school Parktown Boys High were predominantly 'Jewish' and for many years I could see no difference between a Jew and a Christian. What was all this fuss about? When a minor war broke at Saxonwold school, quickly quelled by the Headmaster Mr Hands I was fighting on the Jewish side ! Date 1939, the beginning of the second world war and the holocaust
It took me three years at Parktown Boys High to climb from last to first place in the form, with a lot of sweat lost on the way. My parents had moved to a farm in Swaziland and my brother Vic and I were at a boarding house in Berea, Johannesburg, and my health could not be any better as a result of sport. Swimming was my top choice. The health angle improved when, at home before the move to Swaziland, my father built a swimming pool.
Leslie Klenerman, whom I could beat in the short sprints of a 100 yards swimming free style, gained a bronze medal at the London Olympic games after the war.
In 1944 I met Yvonne Kruger, and was slain by cupid’s arrow. After gaining Matric (first class pass) I enrolled for a Diploma in Land Survey. My father under the misguided impression that I could not 'do' mathematics advised me against Engineering. Four years later, working for Nielsen and Van Der Want, Land Surveyors, Yvonne and I got married, year 1949. I had realised by this time that Survey was not my 'metier', and as I had always proved adept at mechanics and things electrical, I went to work as a motor mechanic for a firm called Swaziland Plantations in Swaziland. After a short period I was called a pupil engineer. This title meant the pupil was required to perform a very broad feats of engineering of all disciplines ! I enjoyed every challenge and learning pattern, so much so that when I applied to sit for the Government Certificate of Competency in Mechanical Engineering I was granted permission in 1959.
Learning the theory of Engineering was not difficult but tiring, as I started work at 6 am, finished at 5 pm Monday to Friday ; Saturday finished at 12 noon. The midnight oil was frequently burnt out, and spurred on by my boss, the Managing director's remarks of 'there is no sentiment in business' I managed to pass the Certificate in 1960. ( Awarded 1961)
By this time Yvonne and I had 5 children, all boys. Life was confusing. Isolated 40 miles from any town of note very little entertainment, long hours of work, and I was stupid enough to make enormous mistakes of living. Adding to all the stupidity, I was told I could never be a Professional Engineer as one had to have a degree. This was to me the last straw. I divorced Yvonne. Somehow she must have understood my pain and stupidity because she agreed. Then I married Pam Hopf, moved to Durban, and enrolled as a first year student of Engineering at the University. Truly, I 'had the full catastrophe'. Two women to support 5 children and a degree to pursue at the University.
There is only one way to drown fear, and believe me I was scared, work ! I was 17 years older than the chap sitting next to me, and the statistics showed a 50 percent failure rate at Varsity Engineering. Chemistry was a mystery! Fortunately only one year of Chemistry, balanced by a love of maths and Engineering subjects. It was only through hard work I was able to pass 'Cum Laude ' in four years.
To try to rectify some of the wrongs (and one can never wipe out the memory of some of the pain ), Yvonne agreed to have me back. We were married, after divorcing Pam in 1961. One can never justify these mistakes of life.
Now followed a search for a suitable job in industry. After working in the paper mills, a food factory where I was a Consulting Engineer for the group, and, for a short time as Inspector of Machinery, I managed to secure a post as a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Natal.
I was at this stage a Professional Engineer with permission to consult in Mechanical, Electrical (heavy current ) and even in some branches of Civil Engineering. I was informed by the Secretary of the Council for Professional Engineers that, due to my large practical experience before and after Graduation that was the situation.
Thus I attempted to bring to the academic world some practice as well as theory, of Mechanical Engineering. As my teaching was in Machines and Strength of Materials I balanced my interest in Engineering with further studies in mass and heat transfer in Thermodynamics. In 1981 I was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy Faculty of Technical Science ( in Latin on the degree certificate), that is Ph.D. Natal University. I had no internal examiner for the degree judgement, but three external examiners. Doctors of Engineering from M I T in the United States of America, Technikon Israel and South Africa.
I retired from the University, when I turned 60 years old, and managed to devote since then some of my spare time to Genealogy as a hobby.
My uncle Sydney George David Leibbrandt number 12.2412323, had 'somehow ' drawn up a family tree for our branch only. This version I found to have major errors of dating. Only on consulting correct death notices did I correct these errors, and the old version also differed with names. I decided to expand the tree to try to include all branches of Leibbrandts in South Africa.
No document is without small mistakes. I have tried to confine the mistakes to a minimum.
