The Huguenot monument in Franschhoek.
Huguenot refugees from France brought their wine-making skills to Franschhoek, which still has a French feel to it and attracts dozens of French tourists (possibly because of its many excellent restaurants).
The museum lists the names of all the Huguenots who emigrated to South Africa in the 17th and 18th centuries. No Lances among them – apparently the Huguenot Lances mostly went to England or America.
