Grobelaar, Vrouw. Vrouw Grobelaar was created by Perceval Gibbon (Miss Gregory) and appeared in seventeen stories which were collected in Vrouw Grobelaar and Her Leading Cases (1906).

Vrouw Grobelaar is an elderly and amply-proportioned Boer grandmother who has lived on the veldt all her life and seen and experienced much, from were-baboons to murder cases. She has little but scorn for the natives, seeing them as savages, but she has a healthy respect for the local version of witchcraft, because she has seen it work.
