Cornelis de Vogel (Cornelis Leonardsz), a member of the Lamist Mennonite congregation at Amster­dam, Holland, who moved to Danzig, Prussia, in 1726 for his banking business. He presented a letter of membership to the Danzig Mennonite Schladall congregation, but he was refused in 1727 because he wore a periwig. Thereupon de Vogel asked admis­sion to the Markushof congregation in 1728, but was rejected there too. These refusals, which were particularly due to the conservatism of the Danzig elder Hendrik (Heinrich) van Dühren, caused much trouble in the Danzig congregation. In 1735 de Vogel had not yet been admitted as a member.

Cornelis de Vogel Leonardsz, as well as his father-in-law Jan van Hoek and his brother-in-law Jan van Hoek, both of whom were Danzig bankers, served as mediators between the Prussian Mennon­ites and the Dutch Mennonite Committee for For­eign Needs.
