After the union in 1591 of many High German and Frisian Mennonite congregations in the Netherlands and the Rhineland on the basis of the Concept of Cologne,  many Waterlanders also joined them in 1601. This group was known as the Bevredigde Broederschap (United Brotherhood). In 1613, however, another split took place. Leenaert Clock left this union with most of the High Germans and Frisians; Clock's group was called Afgedeelden (they united with the Flemish in 1639).
