Plovier (Plouvier, Plovyer, Pleviers), a Mennonite family found in the 16th-17th centuries at Haarlem, Holland. They were weavers or tailors, natives of Meenen (Menin) in Flanders, who fled to Haarlem because of persecution. By marriage they were re­lated to other Mennonite families such as van Heuvel, van Robaix, Verschoten, and Alderwerelt. Very likely the martyr Lenaert Plovier, executed in 1560 at Antwerp, Belgium, was a member of this family.
