Anton Rupert (4 October 1916 – 18 January 2006) and his wife Huberte Rupert (3 December 1919 – 28 October 2005) moved to a home in Thibault Street on the northern banks of the Eerste River in the 1950s. His two brothers, Jan and Koos, with their respective wives Ina and Rona also settled in Thibault Street a few years after their arrival.
Anton and Huberte had three children: Johann, Antonij and Hanneli. The boys attended Paul Roos Gymnasium, while Hanneli went to Bloemhof Girl's High. In the early years Huberte would deliver the children to school and perform secretarial duties at the Rembrandt office which was situated in Bird Street.
Anton and Huberte were considered philanthropists, supporting a number of projects for the preservation of the arts.
