A Mennonite family name in West Prussia, Fröse appeared in rural Frisian congregations and in Danzig. It was first mentioned 1655. In its earlier forms this family name cannot clearly be distinguished from the name Friesen; possibly both names developed from the same root. In 1776, 59 families of this name were counted in West Prussia (without Danzig), 254 persons in 1910, and 195 persons in 1935. Peter Fröse of West Prussia was a Mennonite writer and elder.

At least 11 Mennonite ministers with the name Froese were serving churches in 1953. Six of these were in Manitoba, two in Brazil, one in British Columbia, one in Saskatchewan, and one in Ontario. In the United States, at least 17 Froese families were living in the Buhler-Inman, Kansas area in 1949.
