Louis Johannes Tregardt (10 Augustus  1783 – 25 Oktober 1838), was een van die vroegste Voortrekker leiers, en verlaat hy en sy trekgeselskap die Kaapkolonie in 1836, met die doel om na Delagoabaai aan die Portugese Oos-Afrika kus te trek.

Tydens sy reis skryf hy gereeld in sy dagboek, en word dit deur akademici (beide geskiedenis & taalkundig) gesien as van onskatbare waarde vanweë die breedvoerige informasie wat verskaf word rakende die dag-tot-dag lewens van die Voortrekkers asook van die vroeë dae van Afrikaans.

Alhoewel dit bespiegel word dat sy voorsate vanuit Frankryk na Swede verhuis het, is die mees konrete bewyse dat Louis se voorsate oorspronklik afkomstig was van Uddavalla, Swede.  Sommige bronne vermeld dat sy van afgelei is van die Sweedse woord “trädgård” wat ‘tuin’ beteken –vandaar, Tregardt.

Dit wil voorkom of Louis se seun, Carolus , in 1882 die Franse vorm van die van (“Trichardt”) begin gebruik het, wat toe ook gebruik is tydens die benaming van ‘Trichardtsdorp’ in 1899 (wat later die dorp Louis Trichardt sou word).

______________________________________________________________

Louis Johannes Tregardt (10 August 1783 – 25 October 1838), was one of the earliest Voortrekker leaders, leaving the Cape Colony with his trek party in 1836, with the aim of settling near Delagoa Bay on the Portuguese East-Africa coast.

During his travels, he frequently made entries into his diary, which is seen as an important document by historians & linguists alike, seeing that provides an in-depth account of day-to-day life while on trek, as well as information regarding the early days of the Afrikaans language.

His ancestors were from Uddavalla in Sweden, and some sources believe that his surname was derived from the Swedish word for garden (trädgård).

His son, Carolus, started using the French form of the surname (Trichardt) in 1882, which was also used in the naming of the town ‘Trichardtsdorp’ in 1899, what would later become ‘Louis Trichardt’ as it is known today.
