I am looking for the name of the town in Europe, in which Pieter Jacobus Du Plessis was born, before he came to South Africa.

Please help?

Thank you.

Riekie du Plessis from SA..requested information on an ancestor from Europe. My brother, Leon du Plessis has been doing some
ancestor research and has traced Jean Prierre du plessis who came from Paris. He came out to SA on a ship named the Ooserdyk, on which he was the ships surgeon. I would very much like to hear from Rieke.

My understanding is that Jean Prieur du Plessis was the original du Plessis who went to the Cape in 1688, from Poitier in France where he was a surgeon.
The Huguenot Museum in Franschoek can trace his descendants without much difficulty (they did this for me some years ago).
I would be interested to know more about Pieter Jacobus - Riekie do you know when he went to the Cape?

I coincidently found your message while browsing. Just for info, Riekie du Plessis and I work together but are "unrelated". I have received a fair amount of history from the Hugenot Museaum via my Uncle who lives in England. Obviously we are all from the same Jean Prierre fellow but the branches from there are widespread and we have established the "family tree" to date. If you would like more info, please feel free to reply.

I am a novice at this -- just started today.

Please send me as much info on the du Plessis's as you have. My e-mail address is

I currently live in Cape Town. My father (Carel Stephanus) was from Northern Natal/Swaziland/Eastern Transvaal areas. He had several brothers and sisters but I only got to know one - Hendrik who lived in Moolman circa 1960.

I was born (1950) and lived in Durban for most of my life. Have two brothers :

ONE OF MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER'S BROTHERS MARRIED A MEMBER OF THE DU PLESSIS FAMILY. HIS SURNAME WAS NORTH AND HE ORIGINATED FROM BUCKINGHAMSHIRE IN THE U.K. HIS WIFE WAS RELATED TO THE NOYCE FAMILY, WHO LIVED IN SOUTH AFRICA AND GORDON NOYCE VISITED THE U.K. SOME YEARS AGO AND GAVE US NEWS OF HIS FAMILY. HE HAD A SON AND A DAUGHTER MEGAN. I AM TRYING TO TRACE THE NOYCE AND DU PLESSIS FAMILIES IN SOUTH AFRICA AND ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED.

Surnames: NOYCE, DU PLESSIS OR DU PLESSEY
One of my late mother's relatives was Mr Gordon Noyce.
He and his wife had a son and daughter. I believe his daughter was named Megan, but I'm not certain of the spelling.
They lived in Durban as well as other places and I believe that Gordon Noyce worked for a bank. He and his wife visited London in the 1960s.
Gordon's mother was a Du Plessey or Du Plessis.
Any information on the family or there whereabouts, would be very much appreciated.
Yours sincerely.

Tensy die PJ du Plessis later gebore is as sê 1800 dan is hy nie in Europa gebore nie. Laat my weet wat sy ged. dat. is dan sal ek kyk of ek kan help.
