  In the town of:


In 1846 Herbert Vigne, son of a London Merchant, who had fled to England purchased the farm Weltevreden from Hendrik Cloete. Herbert Vigne was related to Lady Anne Barnard and Sir George Grey, Governor of the Cape. In 1854 he subdivided this farm into plots and called this new village Greyton, after Sir George Grey. The plots were long and narrow, with access to irrigation channels.

Many of the original buildings, such as the Post House have been restored to retain their character. The village of Greyton enjoys restaurants, cafes, galleries shops and three schools.
