ABO (Burger J.C. Esterhuizen). City Coins, December 2013.

Jan Christoffel Esterhuizen was a Cape rebel from Zaksdrift, Griekwastad (Griquatown). He was in the Griekwastad Kommando from 1 August 1901 until 30 May 1902, active in the following skirmishes: Doornfontein, Groenvlei and around Griekwastad.The following appears in Shearing (2004): “J.J. van Broekhuizen from the Winburg Commando stated later that the Free State forces were invited to come into the Hay district by Ockert Jacobus van Rensburg (Griquatown), Frans Badenhorst, (Badenhorstfontein), Jan Christoff el Esterhuizen (Zaksdrift), Philip Snyman (Nek) and some others. Jacobus Andries Jooste of Matsap was elected commandant All rebels bore arms with the Free Staters and Transvalers of their own free will, said Broekhuizen Esterhuizen joined the Boer forces under P.J. de Yilliers in August 1901.

“Among the 2.000 rebels raised in Griqualand West, Petrus Jacobus de Villiers (Ou Hartjie) of Egmont, Herbert, later promoted to General, became the foremost fighter” (Shearing).

Esterhuizen was awarded the ABO in February 1939.
