A Brief History
Due to the fact that Cape Town is, in fact, the mother city of South Africa, history within the region is interesting, harrowing and diverse. The books read that the town was first established for very different reasons from what it is used for today. There was a shipwreck not far from where the Table View area is located today and the location was used to build a shelter for the crew of the Nieuwe Haarlem which was a vessel that belonged to the Dutch East India Company. No crew was injured and the cargo was seen to be unharmed, however, its deemed that this very moment was the beginning of Europeans inhabiting the Cape area and would later shape the undeniable European influence in Cape Town and the whole of the Western Cape.
“Harry die Strandloper”, or Hadah, was the leader of the Goringhaikonas, who were the first people documented to live in Blouberg. Because of Hadah’s entrusted duties to deliver letters to the British seafaring community, he became the first postmaster in South Africa.
In 1806, the first casualties of the Battle of Blaauwberg drowned when their boat was driven by the large surf into the rocky point at the end of Stadler road and it capsized. The invading British forces went on to defeat the defending Dutch forces and subsequently occupied the whole of the Cape Colony. This was an initial step in the major colonisation that took place throughout southern Africa.
