Hercùles van Loon

Van loon arrived in Stellenbosch as the first permanent minister (Dutch Reformed Church reverend). Some speculate that his wife was not the perfect minister’s wife, and that she had an affair or various affairs. On June 26th, 1704 he committed suicide by “cutting his own throat with his pocket knife and that no one had yet discovered the cause of his profound despair”.
