Emigration and the Erasmus family of Bruintjieshoogte. Among the earliest reports on specific families preparing to emigrate was one on the Erasmus family of the Bruintjieshoogte ward in the Somerset district. Questions relating to the origin, nature and scope of the emigrating idea are dealt with in relation to that early report. Also dealt with are the approximate numbers of Erasmuses who became Voortrekkers, and from which parts of the Cape Colony they emigrated.
