In 1707 the Dutchman Hermanus Bosman was employed as sick-comforter to the Drakenstein community. He married the daughter of a French Huguenot. Over the next hundred years he and his family became prominent members of the district of Paarl and Stellenbosch.

Karel Schoeman has transcribed, edited and annotated about a hundred letters, other personal writings, poems and documents related to this family.
