Extract from Fransen via Artefacts:
This house was built by Johannes Christoffel Rothmann, blacksmith, in 1834. The initials on the gable, JVDS. have caused much confusion, especially as a certain J van der Spuy was living in Swellendam at the time. However, no connection between him and the house can be traced. Lance Tomlinson got the information that the letters stand for 'Jaar Van De Slaven' from Douw Gerbrandt Steyn of the farm Voorhuis aan die Breede Rivier, who was born c1855. JC Rothmann died in 1873, so DG Steyn was likely to have heard the information first-hand. The interpretation is supported by the inscription (now obliterated) 'Vry Gehoght' in the semicircular cap of the west side gable. The house is T-shaped, with holbol end-gables and a front-gable similar to that of Kliprivier. The front windows and door are contemporary with the house, the four full sashes small-paned but without fixed transoms.
