Hey Terry Ann, I'm a descendent of Frederick Johannes Perryn van der Riet (via his second youngest son - Berthault de St Jean van der Riet) now living in Sydney. I have a copy of a family history that FJPVDR wrote (I assume that you use the same thing) that updates it down to my grandfather. If you're interested I can send you a copy.

Hi Terry Ann
My name is Morag Charlton and Iam the wife of a descendant of the van der Riets. His name is Warwick Charlton. His great-great grandmother was Annie Catherine van der Riet, daughter of FJP van der Riet and Mary Ann Barry. Iam doing a lot of research on their family and have found lots of fascinating information, unfortunately not decently compiled yet. Anyway I would love to swop info.....
best regards
PS We live in the US at the moment

My name is Andre Ferreira, with e-mail adress : I am searching for information, on Duncan Van Der Riet, who was shot during the Anglo-Boer War, only 18 years old, on the farm Sandfontein, Ficksburg during 1902. He lies buried now on the farm Franshoek, Ficksburg. Legend has it that he died due to treachery, or something to the effect. Please help me !

Hi Terry Ann... just started doing family tree research on my mother's side of the family. Came across a Van Der Riet who would be my great-great grandmother. Her name was Emily Mary van der Riet (b. 24 Nov 1830). She married Arnoldus Gerhardus Martinus Kuys. The Kuys family was very prominent in the George area. Wondering if there is any connection. I'd be very interested in getting a copy of the family history as I'm sure there is a connection somewhere. Let me know. Thanks, Brigid.

Visit our webite to see where Emily Mary van der Riet fits into the Kuys family. Now I understand where the name Werndley in the Kuys family comes from - thank you. Emily Mary's grave can be seen in our Gravestones Gallery.

Hi Terry
I am Julia Krone Oliver and my mother is Jennifer vd Riet Krone, daughter of Judge EF vdRiet and descendent of Ryno.....I am interested in discovering where exactly in France the family lived before leaving for SA. I am living in Edinburgh and spend a lot of time in France and have married into a French family. See the following: "Although not numbering among the early batches of French
fugitives who came to the Cape, we find the name of another
French surgeon who lived at the Cape in the first quarter of
the eighteenth century ; we can surmise that he had left France
on account of his Protestantism. Renault Berthault de St.
Jean was born in 1692 at Sanoere, in the province of Berry,
France, and at the age of twenty became a surgeon in the
service of the Dutch East India Company. Seven years
later he landed at the Cape, being joined later on by his
wife, Anne Fourdinier and son. Mr. St. Jean became chief
surgeon of the Government hospital in Cape Town, and
died on the nth March, 1763, having married a second
time Martha Sollier, daughter of Durand SoUier. The
family of de St. Jean is still represented in South Africa
through the female line of the family of van der Riet."
The trouble is that this place, Sanoere, does not seem to exist anymore - so perhaps its Sancerre? Any thoughts? Great work on the family tree and let me know if I can help at all.
Best wishes

Helen said...

Hi Terry Ann, I'm another descendent, via FJvdR's daughter Julia. Enjoying all the research - thanks! Re Julia's comment re the town Saoere... it indeed Sancerre. If you check the website you'll find Renaud-Berthault de Saint Jean in the listings as having come from Sancerre (with wife and son). Also interesting, his second wife was Marthe Sollier - who was the mother of Maria who married Johannes van der Riet, hence the vdR line in SA; she was born in the Cape, the daughter of Durand Sollier (also in that listing) who arrived in 1697 from Clermont l'Herault, which is near Nimes in the Languedoc region - also great wine region.

Sarah said...

Hi, I am a distant British relative of your mother's side. In fact her great grandfather was my great grandmother's brother. If I am right your mother's father was Lancelot Dean Cartwright. I have been able to connect these branches but I have some gaps which I have never been able to fill and I was hoping you may be able to help me. In particular, Lancelot's father. I look forward to hearing from you.

Karen vd Riet Bothma said...

Hi, just to invite all the van der Riet descendants to our facebook group: van der Riet family connection. All the van der Riets in South Africa are one way or the other related. let us organise a reunion and get to know one another.

Prof. JW Kruger said...

Karen vd Riet Bothma said...

Van der Riet family were originally von Rith. An Austrian or Swedish royal family. Can anyone confirm this?
