Annatjie Van Breda Nee Benn My great, great grandfather William Benn came to South Africa, he was a cabinet maker of profession, they first lived in the Swellendam region and then moved to George in the Western Cape, he open a hotel that is still standing and is used for museum.
His son William John married a boer woman and he was therefore disinherited.
Because of this, he lost all contact with the family but William John, who learned the trade of cabinet making from his Dad went on making furniture that is still in the hands of his ancestors.
