Pott, Nicolaas (d. 1872)
Nicolaas Pott (d. 7 May 1872), was a Dutch Mennonite minister, about whose training little is known; he studied at the Amsterdam Mennonite Seminary 1812-1813, and was appointed ministerial candidate in 1816 by the trustees of the Mennonite conference in Friesland. He served as Mennonite pastor at Warns 1821-1824 and at Hippolytushoef on the island of Wieringen 1824-1868. He married a Catholic wife, which seems to have been well accepted by the congregation. At Hippolytushoef, even after her marriage, she kept a vegetable shop, in which she also sold liquors. She gave up the sale of liquors when the church board censured this business.
