Jurjen-Thomas-volk was a branch of Dutch Mennonites, followers of Jurjen Thomas, who in 1637 was excommunicated by the Groningen Old Flemish Mennonites, because of his conflict with Jan Luies and Uko Walles. The small group of Jurjen Thomas' followers, which was found only in the province of Groningen, and was still in existence in 1681, may soon thereafter have merged either with the original Groningen Old Flemish from which they had separated, or with some other group.
