    Hey, my surname is Du Plessis. We are very numerous in South Africa, and I always wonder what Plessis means as Du means “of” right? Does anyone know? I know Richelue was one, but he didn’t have children, so he wasn’t our founding father. I heard once that it was a bush/forest? The treehouses does seem to point to something like that.
