Hi Carol,

I don't know much about 1700-mid-1800's.    These seem like  good 
resource pages
http://www.safrika.org/index.html

http://genforum.genealogy.com/southafrica/all.html

It is a difficult subject to research because the Bremen outbound lists 
were destroyed and the Hamburg outbound lists don't begin until 1850.

There is also this, on Ancestry, but I don't know how many emigrants to 
South Africa there were / or when.
