There is little need to remind Afrikanders that the family of Prinsloo is one of the best known in South Africa. The original Edict of Nantes served upon Jacobus Piet Prinsloo the Huguenot, compelling him to trek to South Africa, exists to this day, preserved in the Bible of the Prinsloos of Assvogelkop, Cape Colony. People learned in the history of the Colony know that wherever there has been action, civil or martial, there was a Prinsloo to be found. Lest, however, some may blame Piet Prinsloo for some of the discreditable acts of those members of the Prinsloo family who betrayed Graaf Reinet to the English in i68o, I would mention that there are two branches of the family, and that the Graaf Reinet traitors belonged to the other one, as my father-in-law has often explained.
