It seems that most Fourie's in South Africa are descendents of Louis Fourie who arrived as a French Hugenot in the Cape in 1688.

De Villiers and Pama also mention a Thomas Fourie, who married Maria Leset and had one son, Johannes, baptised 1671.05.23. Thomas Fourie thus arrived at the Cape before Louis Fourie, but nothing more is presently known about Thomas Fourie and his descendents.

The present information thus focus on Louis Fourie.
