The Beckington Chapel was formed in 1786 by 16 people, who built the Chapel on a piece of land which a Mr.Baily had purchased for 20 pounds from a Mr.Steward in London.

On the 7th October 1788 a Deed of Trust was set up and of the 9 Trustees, Anthony Bourne was one. 
BOURNE, Anthony (I3475)
 
113 Antonia Waller writes in 1973:
“ …… the old Waller House, off East India Dock Road, not a quarter of a mile from the Docks, overlooking a railway cutting. this house, on a corner, was large, typically Victorian with it's basement and three floors above.

Great-grandmother Waller (Elizabeth nee Brown) lived in this house with her daughter, Rose Palmer, and granddaughter, Gwen. Your father (Joseph John Waller) remembers going there often as a small child, especially at Christmas, and meeting all the Waller aunts and uncles at the festivities. Your great-grandmother was then an old lady with thin, fine hair and must have been blonde in her youth - the type of hair that constantly sheds hairpins. She had been a schoolmistress and was a voracious reader. She boasted of having read all the books in Poplar Library, very conscientiously and logically - starting at the "A" authors and going through to the "Z" - Zola, I presume. He can just remember Great Grandfather (Charles Nathan) Waller, who was tall and whipcordy, dressed in somber blacks, with a high, upstanding white collar and a top hat. He was 'Captain of a dredger' Thames-side before he retired. I don't know if it was usual for a Longshoreman to make any deep-sea voyages, but apparently, he had been a Skipper at some time. The curios in the house may have been brought back by him from "Foreign Parts", although they could have been Aunt Rose's souvenirs at that. Seafaring appeared to die out in the Waller Family as speedily as it had begun.” 
BROWN, Elizabeth George Esther (I32)
 
114 Antonia Waller writes in 1973:
“Aunt Charlotte (Jane) was the most intelligent of all the Ryder sisters. She was very kind, soft-spoken and an excellent business-woman. It may be doubted if, for all his drive and energy, Uncle Steve Hatt would have been quite so successful without her help. As a combination, they were redoubtable. They obviously felt there was no fun like work and kept at it hard. The care of their children was left to a servant who had been with them for almost twenty years.” 
RYDER, Charlotte Jane (I216)
 
115 Antonia Waller writes in 1973:
“The third sister was Kate. She married John Murray, a surveyor. He was a very huge Irishman - big and tremendously fat. John Murray worked for the Council. They always had plenty of money because he "worked" a sweepstake. The details, I don't know, but I've heard of such a thing before - possible only if one is part of a large organisation. I believe the operator of this sort of thing runs a weekly or monthly sweepstake with his wage cheque as prize. It will be seen that if the prize is £100 and one has 200 colleagues who regularly take a £1 ticket, the operator must win, although one can't help wondering if the game is worth the candle - all the trouble one would have to go to. Both Kate and John Murray died young and left no children.” 
RYDER, Kate (I325)
 
116 Antonia Waller writes in “Ryder - Lopez memories” dated 1973:
“Nellie, the youngest of the family, was the Beauty. She married a man named Procter, who worked in a Saville Row tailor's as a salesman. In his off hours he was an enthusiastic member of the Territorial Army and through this connection, Aunt Nell joined the A.T.S. She rose to a very high rank - Commissioner, or something of that sort, whatever the female equivalent of a Colonel is. They had one daughter who died during World War II.” 
RYDER, Nellie (I41)
 
117 Antonia Waller writes:
“Florence, was the one who shared a house with your grandparents in the early days of their marriage. She married a man named Frederick Stephens. He was a talented amateur painter, but he died young of cancer, leaving a son and daughter. This daughter married an American Serviceman during World War II and she, her brother and their mother all went to the U.S.A. after the war.”

123 Arrived in S.Africa with his wife in 1686; they lived on "Fleurbaai" below Stellenbosch. They had 4 children.

Pottas: Pierre LE FEBRE was born about 1654. Dit is by die geleentheid dat enkele Hugenote-families wat later as vroeë Hugenote aan die Kaap aangekom het, uit Frankryk padgegee en na Holland geëmigreer het, bv Francois Villion (Viljoen), Guillaume du Toit en Pierre Lefebre.

Pierre le Febre arriveer gedurende 1683 aan die Kaap. Hy ontvang geen hulp van die Kompanjie in 1689 - 1690 nie, aangesien hy reeds in 1683 na die Kaap gekom het. Hy en sy vrou Maria de Graaf het in 1683 na die Kaap gekom (hul name verskyn in die rolle van 14 Februarie 1684). Hy het op Fleurbaux geboer.

Die Franse vlugtelinge wat voor 1688 na die Kaap gekom het, het hul dan ook meestal naby Stellenbosch gevestig. Hulle was Francois Villion (Idas Vallei), Pierre le Febre en gesin (Fleurbaai) en Guillaume du Toit (Aan't Pad).

Fleurbaai word in 1684 reeds aan Pierre toegewys, maar sy grondbrief ontvang hy eers op 28 Julie 1695. He was married to Maria DE GRAVES about 1677.

149 Became a member of the Dutch Reformed Chudh in Cape Town in 1687 as a widow. It seems then that Pieter died at sea. She remarried on 16 May 1688 to Guilaume du Toit. The 3 children from her first marriage were born in Holland and were married in S.Africa.

Sara COCHET was born about 1655 in East Souburg On Walcheren, Nederland. She died before 9 Apr 1714 in Stellenbosch, Wes-Kaap. Ten tye van haar dood besit sy die volgende eiendom: 'Een huijs met desselvs Erf Leggende en Staande in 't vlek of dorp Stelllenbosch, In de opgaande Stellenbosch Straat, groot volgens de grond Erfbrief ........In dato 21 Octobr. 1710, verleend. ... Een Custing brief of Obligatie ten Lasten van Jan Eggertsz van flensburgh groot f 1200 spruijtende Uijt koop van een plaats gelegen Onder 't district van drakenstein'. Daar verskyn in die 'Generale Kassarekening' van die kerkraad van Stellenbosch vir Februarie 'n inskrywing vir die begrafnis van 'Sara Couchet in alles als booven' vir f 15 en weer op 31 Desember 1714 'n inskrywing vir f 6. Sara Cochet se ma is Jannetie Joosse van Vooren.

Sara Cochet het besluit om met haar drie jong kinders na die Kaap van Goeie Hoop te emigreer en op 29 Januarie 1688 het hulle aan boord van die Oosterland Nederland verlaat en op 26 April 1688 in die Kaap aangekom. Sy het op 16 Mei 1688 in Tafelvallei (later Kaapstad) met 'n mede-Hugenoot, Guillaume du Toit, hertrou nadat hulle blykbaar in Nederland, nog voor Du Toit se koms na die Kaap, verloof geraak het. Sy en haar drie kinders het saam met Guillaume du Toit op sy plaas Aan't Pad in Stellenbosch geboer. Sy was die weduwee van Pieter de Clercq van die eiland Walcheren.

Sara Cochet was 'n merkwaardige vrou wat haar nie sommer van stryk af laat bring het nie, soos blyk uit haar optrede tydens die koloniste se stryd teen die korrupte heerskappy van goewerneur WA van der Stel. Guillaume du Toit het saam met agt mede-vryburgers geweier om hom op 3 Junie 1706 by die Kasteel aan te meld om sekere vrae te beantwoord.

Hulle is in hul afwesigheid skuldig bevind aan insubordinasie en tot vyf jaar verbanning na Mauritius en 'n boete van 200 riksdaalders elk gevonnis. Die nege burgers het geskuil waar die Kompanjie se amptenare hulle nie kon vind nie. Teen Desember 1707 het Guillaume du Toit, siek aan graweel (veroorsaak deur nier- of blaasstene), by sy huis gelê. Vyftien soldate is na sy huis gestuur om hom te gaan vang, maar Sara Cochet wou hulle nie toelaat om in die huis te kom nie. In die nag van 3 - 4 Maart 1707 het die soldate meer sukses gehad toe hulle die deur afgebreek het, Sara Cochet se arms pimpel en pers geknyp het, haar vir 'n heks uitgeskel het en gedreig het om haar kop met 'n roer in te slaan as sy nie gou lig verskaf nie. Sy het toegegee en Guillaume du Toit is in hegtenis geneem.

Sara Cochet het as weduwee op 21 Oktober 1710 vir haar 'n huis op die dorp Stellenbosch gekoop en daar gaan woon tot haar afsterwe.

Volgens die testament van Sara Cochet, opgestel op 4 Januarie 1711, was haar kinders, Abraham de Klerk, Jannetje de Klerk, Joost de Klerk en Helena du Toit haar erfgename Toe Sara twee jaar later oorlede is, was Joost de Klerk en Helenadu Toit al oorlede en het Helena du Toit se kinders, Guilliam, Johannes en Johanna (Barbara) Oberholster hul ma se deel van hul ouma geërf (MOOC 13/1/1 110.721)

Sara married Pieter DE CLERQ, son of Pieter DE CLERQ and Clasyna CORDIE, about 1670 in Nederland. (Pieter DE CLERQ was born on 4 Oct 1634 in Serooskerke, , Zeeland, Netherlands.)

Sara next married Guillaume DU TOIT, son of Pierre DU TOIT and Marie ROUSELLE, on 16 May 1688 in Kaap de Goede Hoop, Zuid-Afrika. (Guillaume DU TOIT was born about 1655 in Rijssel, , Oost-Vlaanderen, Belgium and died about 1710.)
