History of Bedfordview:
Although the area around Bedfordview had been inhabited by black natives for thousands of years, the written history of the area commenced with the arrival of white settlers in the 19th Century. The site of Bedfordview was largely taken up by the farm Elandsfontein, and was administered as part of the District of Potchefstroom in the South African Republic. The coat-of-arms of Bedfordview features an Eland holding a fountain as a tribute to the early rural history of the town. In 1853, the farm “Elands Vontyn” was inspected and remained the property of the government until it was granted to GPL van der Linden on the 17th June 1867. The farm remained in the family for a number of years although it was subdivided. The Witwatersrand Gold Reef had a huge impact on the area. Elandsfontein was purchased for the mineral rights, and was later divided into smaller farms and small-holdings, many of which were settled by retired miners. The entire area became known as Geldenhuys Estate.
