Foreword The compilers of a supplement such as this will inevitably find that in spite of conscientious efforts, something is unwittingly omitted, someone is forgotten. The task of collecting and collating the material for the list of family names has been even more difficult and time-consuming than was anticipated. We apologise for any inaccuracies or omissions that may have occurred. Our thanks go to Maureen van Blerk for her help in proof-reading. Our history is rich in heart-warming anecdotes which should be preserved for posterity. Indeed, another book could be written, and a large one at that, recounting the many unsung acts of heroism, of devotion to the continuing work of the Church, by the settlers, from that first pioneer group down to the present generation. Picture old Nils Oie, that very first year, walking late at night by the light of his lantern, to cover the bricks and protect the new church walls from the coming storm. Think of our old faithful bellringers, Kvalsvig, Brauteseth, and then the Brauteseth grandsons carry­ ing on the family tradition — what a contribution the regular, solemn tolling of that old church bell has made to the Marburg way of life. August 29, 1982 is an important date and a significant milepost in the history of the Norwegian Settlement at Marburg. As we celebrate the centenary of the arrival of the 34 families from Norway, it is desirable to pause and reflect on what has taken place in this little comer of South Africa. Throughout the world during this century, there has been such amazing and unparallelled progress in all scientific fields. Looking back at the primitive conditions and hardships that faced our ancestors in their new homeland, we salute their pioneer fortitude, and acknowledge our debt to their courage and faith in God. So many of their high hopes ended in disappointment and disillu­ sionment, and as we read of the gradual moving away from the farms, to the goldfields, to industry in the larger towns, even to other countries that offered better prospects, we realise that the whole Marburg story could have ended in obscurity and failure, with that once tight-knit, hopeful little community scattered far and wide. Thanks however to a small group of dedicated people, mostly 3rd and 4th generation descendants of the original settler families, v » find at this historic Centenary Celebration that where long ago those early pioneers fought a losing battle against arid soil, drought and locusts, the rolling hills are now emerald-green with sugar cane; there is a thriving, prosperous community, and the beautifully maintained old church will, we hope, soon be declared a National Monument. It is not possible to mention by name every person who has contributed to the maintenance and smooth running of the church and community at Marburg. The task of planning and organising the Centenary Celebrations has involved much hard work and sacrifice, and we hope that the sense of a job well done, and the appreciation of the many visitors present on the jubilee day, will make it all seem worth while. High praise must go to our extremely competent ladies who cope with catering and the hundred and one details which help to create that welcoming atmosphere and the wellknown Marburg hospitality. And what about the lovely gardens which have blossomed on the once bare hillside round the church? We all offer our profound admiration and thanks to Audrey Bate for her labour of love. We must also mention the many years of faithful service given by Andrew and Sarah Vinjeveld, who quietly and unobtrusively supervised the cleaning of the church and maintenance of the graveyard. Bjorseths, Kvalsvigs, Holtes, Huffts — down the years they have played their part, with the succeeding generations taking over as the old ones fade away. In the Nero family the outstanding name is that of Oscar Nero, whose leadership and service to the whole life of the community cannot be over-estimated. His touch and his influence can be felt wherever one looks. How fortunate Marburg was to have the devotion and service of a Chairman of the calibre of Oscar Nero, and how grateful we are that his daughter Merle has the same interest and enthusiasm. Last but not least we thank the Brauteseth family for all they have done for Marburg down the years. Indeed, what would we have done without their willing hands, their practical solutions to problems, the example they set in devotion to duty? Whenever any building project has been launch­ ed at the church, the Brauteseths have been there (from the older brothers, Ernest, Rolf, Ronnie and Trygvar, in the past, down to our present stalwart members), giving freely of their time, labour and 4


expertise. Year after year Brauteseths have been largely responsible for the creation of the truly spec­ tacular Marburg Christmas Tree, remembered and beloved by hundreds, young and old. Nils, our tower of strength, is a tireless worker, and a leader who inspires hope and confidence. To Arne we owe a special debt of gratitude for building our Museum. We feel this is an acquisition of great historical as well as sentimental value, and we appeal to all readers for contributions, be it old let­ ters, documents or articles relating to the life of the Marburg settlers. It was singularly fitting that from the Brauteseth family should also come the pastor Marburg has wished for so long. We all sincerely welcome Sven Brauteseth (B.Sc., Hons. (Geol.) B.Th., B.I.Dip.) and his family, and hope their stay amongst us, in the newly-built manse, will be a happy and rewarding one. Though we are naturally grateful to all the visiting ministers who have helped us in all the years we have not been able to have our own pastor, it clearly means a great deal to us to finally have our very own regular church service and Bible study groups. Sven, we pray for God’s richest blessing on your ministry. What of the future at Marburg? The surge of interest and vitality during the period of planning for the Centenary must be fostered and not allowed to wither. An exciting new venture is the intend­ ed development on the church land below the manse. Small lots will be immediately available for the construction of privately funded cottages for the aged and needy. The road ahead is an open one. A rather unusual and interesting situation exists in the present congregation, where Baptists, Methodists and Anglicans work side by side with Lutherans in Christian brotherhood and love. This is the challenge of the future, and wisdom and God’s guidance are needed as urgently now as at any time during the hundred years’ history of the Settlement. With thankfulness we see the younger generation stepping forward to take over the reins. In the hands of able and enthusiastic young leaders like our pastor Sven Brauteseth and our chairman Michael Hansen, we can surely look to the future with confidence. We have our Sunday School; we have our choir, started by Mr Utgaard; we also have an enthusiastic young group learning to speak Norwegian, and to sing the old songs, under the tutelage of Borghild Cawdry. May we long continue to uphold the traditions and keep the simple faith which was the comfort and strength of our forefathers. AAGOT GULBRANDSEN

1967 — 1982

90th ANNIVERSARY 1972 The moving service was taken by Pastor Monstad of Durban, followed by a Service of Remem­ brance at the cemetery taken by Mr Victor Brauteseth. It was a great pleasure to have the only two surviving Settlers to share the day with us — Mrs Anna Halland and Mrs Magda Jacobs. They were presented with beautiful bouquets from the Mar­ burg Church Community. A gift from the Durban Norwegian Church Council was presented to the Church by Mr Egeland of Durban. The Festival Programme consisted of musical items led by the Durban Norwegian Choir and in the Festival speech, Rev Ron Brauteseth paid tribute to our forefathers and their faith, and our need to follow in their footsteps. Among the many greetings, Consul Larsen conveyed greetings from H. M. King Olav of Norway. The celebrations ended with supper and a film evening. It was a really memorable day of thanksgiving and praise. 94th ANNIVERSARY 1976 The Morning Service was taken by Rev Ron Brauteseth. After the service, the Norwegian Settlers’ Memorial Park was dedicated. The oldest living Settler’s son, Mr Gustav Kjonstad, planted a tree on behalf of all the Settlers’ children. After a delicious lunch, the Festival programme consisted of musical items and then Mr N. F. Rowe, the Principal of the Port Shepstone High School gave a very interesting talk on Norway and his interest in the Norwegian Community. 95th ANNIVERSARY OF THE CHURCH 1978 The Morning Service was taken by Pastor J. Nesvaag of Durban. After lunch the Anniversary Pro­ gramme consisted of speeches and musical items. Mr Mike Danielsen paid tribute to the faith of the early Settlers, and Mr Hjalmar Skorpen spoke on the life in the early days of the Settlement and district in a talk entitled “Those Were the Days”. Olga and Harry Mowat entertained the gathering with some lovely duet singing. Rev Flowerday brought greetings on behalf of the other churches in the district.

97th ANNIVERSARY 1979 The Divine Service was taken by Rev J. Nesvaag of Durban. After lunch, the afternoon pro­ gramme consisted of musical items — a clarinet solo by Mark Forrester, the Children’s Choir and the Marburg Adult Choir, and duets by Olga and Harry Mowat. Mr Nils Brauteseth gave the Anniversary speech, and Mr Morton conveyed greetings on behalf of the other churches in the district. The highlight of the day was the Dedication of the Museum building for our “Hall of Memory”. Tribute was paid to Mr Arne Brauteseth for his magnificent ef­ fort in building this extension for the museum. A gift was presented to him from all the members of the Church Council and the Congregation. INDUCTION OF THE NEW MINISTER 1981 On January 15th, we welcomed our new minister, Pastor Sven Brauteseth and his wife Michele from Cape Town. The Induction Service was taken by Rev R. Ford assisted by Col Mead, Rev Nicholson, Canon Kriel and Mr John Harman.

After the service the children of the community gave a display of Norwegian folk dancing. The afternoon programme consisted of children and adult choir singing and the Festival speech was given by Pastor Solhaug. Mr Nils Brauteseth spoke on the preparations for the 100th Celebrations. The highlight of the day was the dedication of the newly built Manse, which was built by Mr Nils Brauteseth. The Dedication Service was taken by Rev R. Ford and the Manse officially opened by Mrs Inga Skorpen, a Settler’s daughter.

Development in the Marburg Settlers’ Area 1882 — 1982 (With acknowledgments to Marburg Immigration Settlement Board) IN 1882 the Norwegian immigrants settled on fifty one-hundred acre lots, and they were given 2 000 acres of commonages for the purpose of grazing. When the promised harbour at Port Shepstone did not materialise, many of the settlers found themselves in financial difficulties. There was no market for their crops, and before long, some of the original farms were sold, or sub-divided. In 1929 the constitution of the Marburg Immigration Settlement Board was authorised by the Government, for the management of the area and the commonages. One of the first actions of the M.I.S.B. was to sub-divide a strip of commonage on the sea-front into township lots. The revenue obtained was used for the efficient functioning of the M.I.S.B. This was the commencement of the sub-division of the commonages. The settlers jealously guarded their grazing rights on the commonages, but later, with the planting of sugar cane on most of the farms, the need for grazing diminished. This fact, together with the progress and development in the area, resulted in further portions being developed and disposed of. When land was made available for industrial development, there was a growing demand for land. This has resulted in a rapid development of the area into residential and industrial townships, which fall under the Local Authorities of either the Borough of Port Shepstone, or the Marburg Town Board (Indian Local Authority). There are now 111 proclaimed industrial lots, on the edge of which a new freeway and a major interchange have been planned, which will shorten the distance to Durban. In consultation with the Department of Community Development, the M.I.S.B. donated about 45 acres of commonage north of the Harding Road for industries and residential sites for the Indian Group. This adjoined the already proclaimed Indian Area. Land has also been donated for the establishment of a Technical Institute for the training of In­ dian artisans and semi-skilled labour. At the time of going to press, the building is nearing completion. A large portion of farmland (approximately 300 acres) adjoining the industrial area was pro­ claimed a coloured Group Area in 1973. A large school has been erected here. The Department of Community Development is in the process of establishing economic and subeconomic housing in the Coloured, and in the Indian Group areas. Eventually ways and means were investigated in order to dispose of the commonages to the benefit of the individual lot-holders. Through an Act of Parliament, the M.I.S.B. was empowered to dispose of the commonages. Registered owners of the original lots were issued with shares based on acreage owned, which entitl­ ed them to either an allocation of commonage land, or a cash payment equal in value to the value of the shareholding. Any commonage land not required for land allocation will be sold, to the benefit of the shareholders. At present, this is being carried out, and once all assets owned by the M.I.S.B. have been disposed of, this Board will be dissolved. Credit must be given to the early Norwegian and present Norwegian descendants, together with the other settled people of this area, for having achieved so much, with due consideration for the various race groups, during the 100 years since the immigration of the settlers.

Exerpts from “The Natal Mercury”, September, 1882. With acknowledgments to the Natal Mercury and the Killie Campbell Africana Library. Tuesday, September 5, 1882. DOWN THE COAST WITH THE NORWEGIAN IMMIGRANTS. (By our Special Correspondent) When the good ship Lapland (Captain Potts) left Durban on Monday, August 28, to take to Umzimkulu the 36 families of Norwegian Emigrants who have been selected to form the new settlement at Marburg in Alfred County, by the Immigration Board, she had on board, besides the immigrants, a Customs’ Official, a representative of the Immigration Board, and two press representatives. The vessel had been visited in the morning by Mr Butler, secretary of the Immigration Board, and other gentlemen who had superintended the drawing of the lots to be occupied by the new settlers; and some neat little speeches were made expressive on the part of colonists of their good will, and hopes for the future of the emigrants who, in reply, expressed their thanks for past favours, together with their hopes and intentions for time to come. As the Koodoo took this party, including among others Mr Greenacre, Mr Andrew and Mr Petersen, off, three hearty cheers were given from the Lapland, and responded to by the party on the tug; and shortly afterwards the ringing of the telegraph bell on the bridge, and the noise made by the winch as the anchor was got up, told those on board the steamer that she was under weigh. . . The following letter was next day addressed to the captain:Messrs Donald Currie &c Co. Gentlemen, - 1 hope you will excuse the liberty I have taken, but I feel that I would not be doing my duty unless I thanked you for the kindness we have received on our voyage from London to Natal on board the Lapland, from Captain Potts, Mr Jenkins (chief steward) and all in his department - the provisions being of first-class quality; and every facility for comfort has been shown to us in every respect from the beginning to the end of the voyage; and gentlemen, I thank you one and all, and wish you every success and happiness through life. I now thank you for all my flock being so well provided for according to your request I remain, gentlemen, yours very sincerely, EMIL BERG, Pastor to Norwegian Settlers. . . . The sea boundary of Natal is, as is well known, very beautiful, although it has a great similarity along its whole coastline. Hills, partly covered with dark green bush, alternate with verdant valleys, and here and there a river runs out into the ocean, while at intervals a kaffir hut or two may be seen . . . The embryo colonists found food for conversation in an examination of its beauties, and if their ejaculations were properly understood, of more practical questions relating to the productiveness of the soil. To look at the emigrants in their unstudied positions an observer could not help being struck with their respectable and sober appearance. They had yet an air of sobriety - the term is used in its widest sense - and sedateness, which seems to be a characteristic of the northern parts of Europe. The men, who were of all ages, were, in the majority of cases, fine, healthy-looking, muscular fellows, dressed in a rough kind of frieze, with heavy, serviceable boots. Some of them ap­ peared to be of a higher social standing than others, and this may be well understood when it is known that they have amongst them a goldsmith, joiners, shipwrights, tailors, bootmakers, builders, masons etc., all however having been farmers; but they were similar in one respect - that of neatness and cleanliness. The women and children, almost without exception, possessed the wellknown attributes peculiar to the Scandinavian races, viz., fair hair and blue eyes. Some of the younger women possessed considerable attractions of the “rural beauty” description, and many of the children were indeed exceedingly pretty. . . . The Norwegians now assembled on the quarter deck and ranged themselves round the skylight, where Mr Berg, their energetic and revered pastor performed divine service, which it had been customary to hold daily throughout the voyage, at which all the emigrants attended, and behaved in a well ordered pious manner. Darkness fell, the stars commenced to peep out, . . . at last, through the glasses, the hill which forms the western side of the river Umzimkulu was discerned . . . at last the anchor was let go, and the ship rode about 1 Vz miles off shore a little to the north of the mouth of the river. 49


In order to signify in a becoming manner the important arrival our good hearted Captain gave in­ structions for the burning of blue lights and the discharge of rockets, which being carried out, gave the emigrants great pleasure, the more so when they were answered from the shore by the flashing'of lights and the discharge of five charges of dynamite. When it became known to the emigrants that their future neighbours were assembled on the beach and giving them welcome, three hearty cheers were sent up, and bye-and-bye, travelling slowly over the water-course, a suitable response was heard. The Norwegians now gathered together a choir which had been formed on board and sung some hymns in a manner which showed they had had good training to assist what, in some in­ stances, was remarkably good natural talent. THE LANDING The mode adopted at Umzimkulu for the landing of passengers is not at any time calculated to be enjoyable, a heavy sea is continually breaking on the beach and beating into the mouth of the river. The lighter . . . came along-side the steamer early on Tuesday morning, and as the sea was rather heavy some difficulty was experienced in getting the passengers, especially the women and children, into i t . . . Eventually without the slightest mishap the lighter was filled. There were 128 persons on board of her, and the prospect of being battened down below was not very inviting; however, the surf had to be got through . . . the lighter was tossed about unmercifully by the waves and nearly all the women and children were sick . . . the heat below was almost unbearable . . . it seemed scarcely possible that packed as closely as they were all could survive . . . After all were landed it was found impossible to get the lighter out again that night, and as no baggage had been brought ashore, the emigrants were left in a rather unenviable condition . . . Mr Reid had, however with commendable foresight, asked Captain Potts of the Lapland to send ashore some bedding and ship’s biscuit. . . Mr Price’s shed was not nearly large enough to hold all the people, but the inhabitants of the district behaved in a highly praiseworthy manner, and found them shelter for the night. Wednesday, September 6, 1882. There seems to have been a hitch somewhere in the arrangements made by the Immigration Board for the reception of the Norwegians at the Umzimkulu, or why had private residents there to do what the agents of the Board ought to have done, in all the essential matters of board and lodge­ ment? . . . Fortunately for the colony - and for the Board - the Norwegians are a contented and non­ complaining set of people. They neither speak nor write English, and they are so buoyed up by a spirit of religious confidence in the success of their enterprise that they are likely to make the best of whatever inconvenience or privation they may have had to endure at the outset. But the fact that they do not complain ought not to blind us to the further fact that they had some ground of com­ plaint, and it is the business of the Board to make sure that such cause of complaint does not arise again. We notice also, that a few of the immigrants had fair reason to be dissatisfied with the allotments drawn by them. If it be the case that any of them have had lands allotted to them that are practically worthless, then we do not hesitate to say that it is the duty of the Board to provide them with better abiding places. These people have come to make homes amongst us, and it is but right and just that their confidence in the bona fides of the Government and their own interests as in­ dividuals should be properly and practically recognised by the body that is directly responsible for their coming here. They have broken up their homes in the old north world, and have parted their connection with it, and every consideration of good faith and honesty, requires that they be treated just as we all should wish to be treated under corresponding circumstances.
