I was surfing the net looking for some clues about my forefathers when I found this site. All info we have is that two German brothers came somewhere in the 1700's to the Cape of Good Hope where they bought a farm next to Liesbeeck river close to Cape Town, South Africa. I am a decendant of one of those bothers and over the years the surname was changed to Brits. The family are Afrikaans since the 1800's. Are any of you related to or know about them. The family name is Johan/Johannes.
