Sint Maartensdijk is a town on the island of Tholen, Dutch province of Zeeland. Mennonites living in Tholen in the early days met in a private house at Sint Maartensdijk; in 1647 Elder Jacques van Maldeghem of Aardenburg performed a marriage here. This troubled the Reformed church board of Sint Maartensdijk and caused the board in 1633-1648 to make repeated complaints to the magistrates, which, however, seem to have been without result. It is not clear whether there was a Mennonite congregation at Sint Maartensdijk. At any rate nothing is known about this congregation.
