Members of only three families, Joubert, Stephenson and Cloete made the wagon road over the mountain between Lady Grey and the farms situated in the New England portion of the Lady Grey sub-district.
The stone tablet on the top of the pass credits the people who made Joubert’s Pass. They are the Jouberts, Gideon Sr. and his sons Daniel Francois (Danie), Christiaan de Wet (Chris), Gideon Jr. (Giel) and Johannes Marthinus (Martiens). The others were George Friedrich Stephenson and Cornelius Willem Cloete. The initials at the bottom are those of Moos Pieterse, who also carved many of the headstones found in the old cemetery in Lady Grey.
