Jacobsdal, North West
This article relies largely or entirely on a single source. (January 2020)
Jacobsdal was a hamlet 13 km south of Zeerust and 18 km north-east of Ottoshoop. It was laid out on the farm Vergenoegd 46 and named after its owner, David Jacobs. On 15 August 1868, the first NG church was established by Ds F L Cachet. In 1872, the church bought some ground from W Kirstein, and started laying out erven.[clarification needed] This town was then named Jacobsdal (Jacobsdaal – old name). Unluckily, the establishment of Zeerust a short distance away, spelled the beginning of the end for Jacobsdal.
