Scottburgh is known to many as one of the most attractive and popular holiday destinations on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast, but to the average person little is known about the history of the town of Scottburgh and areas surrounding Scottburgh in which Seeff Mid South Coast have its base in Central Scottburgh in Scott Street.
Scottburgh is situated 58km South of Durban and is laid out on the banks of the Pambinyoni River and is the oldest town on the South Coast. In 1860 Scottburgh was surveyed as a township and named in honor of the Lt Governor, John Scott the then governor of Natal. Shaka, King of the Zulus and his entourage were among some of the early visitors to the now Scottburgh area . Stopping to rest and drink from the nearby spring, he was distracted by the myriad of birds at the mouth of the river beside which Scottburgh was later built. He wondered how on earth each bird would know to which nest it should return and named the river “Mpanbonyoni” which translates to “Confuser of Birds”.
At the turn of the century , this shallow river bay was home to a fleet of fishing vessels and was, for a time a promising harbor. This was cause for much excitement among the local sugar pioneers eager to transport their harvest to Durban. These pioneers were part of the contingent of Byrne Settlers who arrived in 1850 from Liverpool on board the Henrietta. These settlers included the Crookes brothers, Charles and Samuel who began to establish sugar farms and ultimately sugar mills-this was the start of an industry that is still one of the economic cornerstones of the South Coast. Scottburgh did eventually boast a port in 1874 with mooring buoys anchored outside the surf line and coasters chartered from ship to shore. Shipping companies emerged but folded a few years later due to transport rates dropping with the coming of the railway line to the South Coast that also passed Scottburgh.
The township of 'Scottburg'(no spelling error) was a grid of streets on a map in 1861 and and to this day the initial stands that was surveyed is found in Scottburgh Central. In 1923 the real development of Scottburgh commenced. This was the year when property owners formed a voluntary Township Association. This association were instrumental in approaching the Surveyor General, persuading him to relax the “conditions with regard to the building materials for the construction of houses in Scottburgh”. This was due to the scarcity of brickmaking clay in the Scottburgh area and in so doing heralded the era of lightly constructed houses, with a minimum cost of 250 pounds per house to be built within two years of anyone acquiring a stand in Scottburgh. Some of these houses are still standing in Scottburgh today.
