Verloove (Verlove), a Dutch family of Mennonite refugees, moving from Flanders, Belgium, to Rotterdam and Haarlem, Holland, in the early 17th century or even earlier. An outstanding member of this family was Karel (Carel) Verloove, b. 1633 at Haarlem, d. ca. 1700 at Amsterdam, who was a poet, whose verse was highly esteemed during his life time. One of his publications was Uytbreyding over de heylige Lofzangen (Amsterdam, 1686), a song- book containing some 200 hymns with psalm tunes. He belonged to a group of liberal poets, usually called the circle of Jan Zoet, all of whom favored Collegiant views. Karel Verloove was a friend of Jan Luyken, who dedicated one of his poems to Verloove, and was well acquainted with Johannes Antonides van der Goes and Pieter Cornelisz Plockhoy. His brother Pieter Verloove also wrote verse. Members of this Verlo(o)ve family are still found in the Rotterdam congregation.
