||Moolman...and Maritze by Malin Swe
Are you sure about a French origin for Moolman? I know that French Huguenots made a big contribution to the Afrikaaner gene pool but this name doesn't look French, and I can't find a similar French name.
Maritze - German you say. A version of Mauritz, Maurice? I looked up Pietermaritzburg on wikipedia, but they reckon it's called after Piet Retief, aka Pieter Maritz Retief, who was of French origin (Rétif?).
Afrikaaner families are usually very keen on genealogy, so there's probably information on the Moolman family somewhere out there.
