The following information was contributed by Rudi Londt (b4c1) of California, USA.
Rudi's father and grand-father were both born in Padang, Sumatra, Indonesia.
Indonesia was for a considerable time known as the Dutch East Indies, having
been colonised for trade in spices by Holland through the Dutch East Indies
Company (VOC) from the early 1600's.
The colonisation of South Africa at the Cape of Good Hope was started by
the same VOC in 1652 to provide fresh food and water for their east-bound trading
ships. Johannes Londt (of Amsterdam - Ref. File 1) was at the Cape in 1795
when the Dutch administration surrendered to the British. He remained
after the capitulation, married and became the ancestor of one of the Londt
family lines in S.A.
It is the hope of this author that some common connection will be found
in the 1700's between the dutch Londt's of Indonesia and the South African line.
In pursuit of this the author has been in contact with the National Archives of
Indonesia in Jakarta who have provided the names of eleven persons with this
surname. These are given in File 10. Further details are awaited.
