Marne Brotherhood, a name given to one of several congregations which formed a certain union found in the northeast part of the Dutch province of Groningen, commonly called "De Marne." In this region (according to G. E. Frerichs) Menno Simons may have found shelter after he had left the Roman Catholic Church in 1536. About 1640 Jan Luies is said to have been the elder of the Marne Brotherhood; soon afterward this congregation was divided into five congregations, Houwerzijl, Ulrum, Leens, Kloosterburen, and Vliedorp, all belonging to the Groningen Old Flemish branch. In 1816 the remnants of these congregations were united into one congregation, viz., Mensingeweer. Repeatedly, but very severely in 1717, the Marne region was struck by floods.
