Excerpt from Records for the Early History of South Africa

Governor, and in some smaller places by a Commander. Each one in, succession was subservient to the authority of the official immediately above him. At first the. Cape communicated. With the Seventeen through the governor-general in Batavia, butlater on, owing to its geographical situation, it corresponded direct with the former, keeping, however, in touch with Batavia. In 1795 uthe Cape capitulated to the British forces, and remained an English colony until handed over to the Batavian Republic in 1803 in terms of the Treaty of Amiens, signed in the previous year. In one of its early proclamations, issued in 1803 by the new-comers, the people Of the Cape were informed that' it is the will Of the Batavian people that this settlement be no longer dependent on the High Regency at Batavia nor upon any commercial body whatsoever; the constitution has abolished all particular privileges of that nature, and the in habitants Of' the Colony of the Cape will know in future no other government but that which. The Batavian people have appointed over themselves.' The Cape remained under this government only three years, -for in January, 1806, it was once more taken by British forces. The English remained in military occupation until 1814, when bylthe Treaty of London it was irrevocably handed over to. Great Britain. In 1806 the colony comprised the greater portion Of what is now the Cape Province, and was divided into six magisterial districts - namely,' the Cape, Stellen bosch, Swellendam, Tulbagh, Graaff - Reinet, and Uitenhage. The first three were the Oldest, and at each town or village Of those names there was a church and a court of law.
