Tadema, a Dutch family name, originally of the province of Friesland, both Mennonite and non-Mennonite. A Mennonite branch is found in the 18th-19th centuries, members of which were public notaries, among whom was P. Tadema of Akkrum in the early 19th century, who was a deacon of the local congregation. Descendants of this family are Jelte Karel Tadema (Nijkerk in Friesland, 1842-Haarlem, 1899), who was a partner of the F. Bohn printing and publishing company at Haarlem, serving the Haarlem Mennonite congregation as a deacon 1871-99. Both his sons, Jan Cornelis Tadema (Haarlem, 1870-) and Johannes Leendert Tadema (Haarlem, 1874-1949), were partners of the Bohn publishing company. Both joined the Haarlem Mennonite Church and Johannes Leendert served as deacon 1904-49.
