Bergsig developed out of the farm Niepothsdale – in 1894 the property was sold to Koos Stander, mayor of George from 1926 to 1932. In those days it was a big apple and cattle farm on the Eastern edge of George. The homestead was named Fairview and the house stayed in the Stander family from 1894 to 1974. By 1936 the farm still supported a substantial apple orchard, but was already surrounded by a number of subdivided smallholdings. When it was finally decided to develop the suburb of Bergsig there was much debate whether to call the suburb Appelboord or Bergsig.
