Chevalier Jacob LETTERSTEDT1

M, #631, b. 1796, d. 18 March 1862

Biography

Chevalier Jacob LETTERSTEDT was born in 1796 in Lallerstedt, ?stergtland, Sweden.2,3 He married Maria Barendina BECKER on 14 Aug 1822 in Evangelsche Luther Kirke, Cape Town.4,5 He married Lydia BOYS, daughter of William Hooper BOYS and Sarah MEREDYTH, on 8 Oct 1851 in St Martin in the Fields, London, EnglandG.6,7,8 Chevalier Jacob LETTERSTEDT died on 18 Mar 1862, at age ~66, in Paris, FranceG.9
Chevalier Jacob Letterstedt was a Swedish businessman who settled in South Africa (Cape Colony). He arrived at Cape Town in 1820, where he made his fortune in grain trade. Later he founded the company that became South African Breweries. He was Consul of Sweden-Norway in 1841. He was living at Mariandahl, Newlands, Cape of Good Hope, South Africa in 1845. The farm at Mariandahl is now Newlands Cricket Ground.
The Cape Town Historical Society has published the following details about Jacob Letterstedt:
BRIEF HISTORY OF THE JOSEPHINE MILL, Home of the Cape Town Historical Society
In 1975, the Josephine Mill was given as a ruin to this Society by Myra East. The Historical Society [of Cape Town] was instrumental in gaining generous support from corporate bodies and the University of Cape Town, who together recreated a working water mill.
The Mill was founded in 1840 by Jacob Letterstedt, a Swede, who named it in honour of Crown Princess Josephine of Sweden who had granted him an official audience in 1837. Jacob arrived in Cape Town almost penniless in a party of 1820 Settlers, but he had the good fortune of finding favour with a widow, Maria Dreyer, owner of two farms in Newlands, Louwvliet and Questenberg. Maria, though 18 years his senior, offered Jacob marriage, which he accepted, and they married on 14 August 1822. Jacob unified the farms as Mariendahl, named after his wife. Though the mill stood alongside the Liesbeek River, Jacob led the water to the mill race along an aquaduct from the Newlands Spring near Newlands Avenue. At present, the huge cast-iron wheel uses water pumped out of the river.
The building housing the milling machinery is the bulk of Jacob's original mill. The five-storey section attached, with the free-standing chimney, was added when the mill was converted to steam operation some time between 1860 and 1880. After Jacob died in 1862, his estate passed to his daughter, Lydia, by a second marriage. The estate was managed as J. Letterstedt & Co.3,4,10,11

The details of the Will and Bequests, published in the Illustrated London News are as follows: "The will (dated October 25, 1880) of Mr. Edmund Henry Turton, J.P., D.L., of Upsall Castle, Thirsk, Yorkshire, who died on July 30 last, was proved on December 21 by Edmund Russborough Turton, the son and sole executor, the value of the personal estate being D18,903. The testator gives £200 and his jewels to his wife, and she is to have the use during widowhood of Larpool Hall, together with the furniture and contents thereof, and £100 to his son Robert Bell Turton, he having been already provided for by the will of his great-grandfather Robert Bell Livesey. He charges certain lands and premises at Roxby, Yorkshire, with the payment of £1000 to his son Ralph Douglas Turton, £4000 to his daughter Barbara Josephine Turton, and £3000 to his daughter Cecilia Marianne Turton. On the death or remarriage of his wife he gives Larpool Hall, upon trust, for his son Ralph Douglas Turton, but should his son succeed to certain property under the will of his cousin, Mrs. Jane Sanders, this gift is not to take effect, and Larpool Hall is to pass to his eldest son, Edmund Russborough Turton. He devises Upsall Castle and other hereditaments and premises to the use of his eldest son, Edmund Russborough for life, with remainder to his first and other sons, according to seniority in tail male; the picture ‘The Gipsy Fortune-teller,’ the Sevres china clock presented by Richard Brinsley Sheridan to Dr. Turton, the gold vase given by the Duke of Northumberland to Dr. Turton, and other articles are to go and be held therewith as heirlooms. With the exception of certain closes of land at Roxby and Lythe, he leaves the residue of his real and personal estate to his son Edmund."
