Naeldemansvolk were the followers of Hendrik Naeldernan at Franeker, Friesland. Here in 1556 a group of moderate Dutch Mennonites, who opposed the practice of strict marital avoidance, disagreed with Menno Simons, Dirk Philips, Leenaert Bouwens, and other conservative leaders. They were also called "de nieuwe gemeente" (new congregation) or Franekeraars (Franickers). Soon they joined or merged with the Waterlanders. At other places mention is also made of the "Hendrik-Naeldemansvolk," for example at Vlissingen, where Cornelis de Compasmaker was said to have been their leader.
