Bedford’s History

The origin of Bedford:
Andries Stockenström, the senior magistrate of Graaff-Reinet, was killed in one of the early struggles with the Xhosas who attacked the farmers and stole their cattle.  Lieut. Andries Stockenström, his son, succeeded him and was given the right to choose a farm at the Eastern frontier.  He selected a 4 500 morgan farm at the foot of the Kaga Mountains and called it Maasström named it after his wife (maiden name Maasdorp) and himself.  In 1853 he decided to sell one third of his farm for a township.  He named the town after his friend, Lord Russel, the Duke of Bedford. Bedford was founded in 1854. In 1856 the Free Church was founded and the first priest was Rev. Edward Soloman.  It was under the leadership of Rev. Soloman that the first public school was founded 10 years later. (Enslin, 1965)
