Herman Broese van Groenou, b. 19 February 1822 at Kampen, was a son of Jacobus Adolf Broese and Geertruide van Groenou. He studied at the University of Utrecht and the Amsterdam Mennonite Seminary and in 1847 became preacher at Medemblik; in 1852 he went to Aardenburg. On 19 August 1883 he preached his farewell sermon in Aardenburg and retired to Leiden, where he died 12 July 1894. The Doopsgezinde Bijdragen published his historical studies on the Aardenburg congregation under the title, "Uit het verleden der Doopsgezinde gemeente te Aardenburg," (1876-1884) and "Verklaring van een ouden scheldnaam der Doopsgezinden" (1882).
