The Greyling family in SA is very large, there are a lot of different stems, the family originated in England, Egan is a very Irish surname.
To research back your will have to follow the paper trail, you need their parents names.
You have enough information to apply to Home Affairs for their birth certificates, I believe that Johannes father was also Johannes Jacobus latin for XXXXX XXXXX. He died 1956
As far as I know, this family clan came from German ancestry, from Bremen.
My father, Johannes Jacobus Greyling, did not die in 1956.
His dates are 1927-1999
There is an estate record for a Johannes Jacobus 1956, it may be his father.
Possible birth record for his father:
Johannes Jacobus Greyling, "South Africa, Free State Dutch Reformed Church Records, 1848-1956"Name: Johannes Jacobus Greyling Event Type: Baptism Event Date: 05 Oct 1902 Event Place: Bloemfontein, Free State, South Africa Residence Place: Age: Marital Status: Birth Date: Record Type: Birth Year (Estimated): Father's Name: Petrus Hendrik Kemp Greyling Mother's Name: Anna Catharina Beetge Spouse's Name: Spouse's Residence Place: Spouse's Age: Spouse's Marital Status: Spouse's Birth Year (Estimated): Entry Number: 6905 Page: 249 GS Film number:(NNN) NNN-NNNN Digital Folder Number:NNN-NN-NNNN Image Number: 00591
My grandfather was Abraham Gerhardus Wilhelmus Greyling, ?1899-?1989
I have checked all the online records, nothing for Abraham, he may be related to Abraham Carel, he had a brother Johannes Gerhardus.
Civil registration started in South Africa 1890, I would think there was only one A.G.W. Greyling born 1898 / 1900.
Apply to Home Affairs for his birth certificate, it is a nice document to have.
