Olivier ancestry in South Africa

Classification: Query
Surnames: Olivier
I am trying to find out where and when the Oliviers came to South Africa.
My grandfather was Cornelius Johannes and his father was Gert Cornelius. I think my grandparents lived in Sutherland and moved to Oudtshoorn many years ago, where both of my grandparents died.
My grandmother was nee Vermeulen and she spoke
a Le Roux in the family as well (a lady).
My grandparents were well known in Oudtshoorn as my grandfather's one brother owned the bakery in town and my grandfather owned a little corner shop at some stage.
There were 12 brothers and sisters on my grandfather's side and 14 on my grandmother's side.
I wish to find out the arrival of two Olivier brothers in the 1700 if I remember correctly as they were my ancestors.
Thanks
