(Van) Oudenaerde (Oudenaarden) is a Dutch Mennonite family, probably emigrants from the Belgian town of Oudenaarden, was from the 17th century found at Rotterdam, Netherlands. Willem van Oudenaerde, d. 27 October 1726 at Rotterdam at a very advanced age, a grocer and a linen merchant, married to Wilhelmina van Eyse, was in 1682 appointed preacher of the Rotterdam Flemish congregation and in 1691 elder; in 1694 he moved to Middelburg, and thereupon to Dordrecht, but in 1696 he was back in Rotterdam as a preacher in the Waterlander congregation. After the Flemish and the Waterlander congregations merged in 1700 Willem van Oudenaerde was preacher of the united congregation 1701-1705. Some of his descendants served in Rotterdam as deacons. Marinus Oudenaarden published a pamphlet, Korte Aanmerkingen (Rotterdam: 1718), against Jan Suderman and Aelbert van Meurs, who had protested against the appointment of David van Heyst as preacher. The van Oudenaerde family has died out.
