BOOYSEN Boy

Stamvader Boy BOOYSEN was born in 1640. He came to South Africa from Barlt in Ditmarschen. He was a burger at Stellenbosch and since 1688 a burger at Drakenstein. On 10 June 1691 he married Hermina van NES who was from Wyk at Duurstede.

He obtained the farm Optenhorst JG le Roux states in Noorder Paarl: "Hierdie plaas is in 1713 toegeken aan Booy Booysen, oorspronklik van Barlt, "n dorpie in die deel van Holstein langs die Noordsee bekend as Ditmarschen. Hy was reeds in 1688 "n burger van Drakenstein en in 1713 "n bejaarde persoon van 73. Binne twee maande nadat Optenhorst aan hom toegeken is, verkoop hy die helfte daarvan aan Jean Louis du Plessis, tweede seun van die stamvader Charl Prieur du Plessis. Jean Louis noem sy deel van die plaas Olyfboom, maar koop in 1716 ook die oorblywende deel van Optenhorst van Booysen sodat die plaas weer verenig is"
