Devonbosch is a small suburb nestled within Stellenbosch which was established in 1679 by Simon van der Stel, the Governor of the Cape Colony. Its name, derived from "Stellenbosch," meaning "(van der) Stel's Bush," pays homage to its founder. Positioned along the banks of the Eerste River, named as such due to van der Stel's exploration, Koelenhof AH flourished rapidly. By 1682, it had attained autonomy as a local authority, showcasing its swift growth. It became the seat of a magistrate, exercising jurisdiction over a vast expanse of 25,000 square kilometres by 1685. This historical progression underscores Devonbosch's pivotal role in the region's development, epitomising the blend of colonial heritage and natural allure that characterises Stellenbosch.
