De Jager is a family name borne by a number of Dutch Mennonite ministers. Besides Hendrik de Jager and his son Jan de Jager, both of whom served at Hamburg, Germany, there were Pieter de Jager, serving at Vlissingen 1663-1671, Leiden 1671-1679, and later at Schiedam 1692-? (concerning this man and the troubles he caused at Leiden and Rotterdam, see items in Bibliography). Henrik Teunis (Hendrik Theunis de Jager) was a preacher at Harlingen, Holland, in the last decades of the 17th century, and Wigger Thomas de Jager served at South Giethoorn 1749-ca. 1798.
