  • Notes 
    • Burger Drakenstein

      Op 15 Oktober 1733 het Louis Fourie die eienaar van Andries Gous se plaas "Doornboom", aan die Duivenhoksrivier aan die wagendrift, distrik Swellendam, geword. "Doornboom" het vir die volgende ongeveer 150 jaar in die besit van die Fourie-familie gebly. Hy het ook die plaas "De Tradouw", geleƫ aan die Buffelsjachtrivier in die distrik Swellendam besit. Louis Fourie het in 1730 saam met 12 ander kommandolede vier
      slawe, wat gedros het, gaan soek. Hulle is by die mond van die Palmietrivier (naby die huidige Stilbaai) gekry waar twee slawe doodgeskiet, een gewond is en een ontsnap het.
      Louis Fourie is in Januarie 1744 tot wagmeester van Swellendam se Dragonders bevorder. Hy was vanaf 1751 tot 1758 ook Heemraadslid vir die kolonie van Swellendam. Hy was 'n welaf boer. Louis se vader het "De Slangerivier" aan hom bemaak (op voorwaarde dat hy die ander kinders uitbetaal), maar toe Louis snr in 1750 oorlede is was Louis jnr reeds op "Doornboom" gevestig [1 STB 18/4]. Louis jnr het "De Slangerivier" in 1751 aan Gabriel Rossouw verkoop. In die lys van "Alphabeth van Eenlopen Persoonen" in Stellenbosch verskyn die naam as "Louis Fourie de Jonge". Burger van Drakenstein.
      Louis II sterf in 1767 op sy plaas "Doornboom" in die ouderdom van 64 jaar. Hy is by sy seun Pieter in die familie begraafplaas op die plaas begrawe.)
