Zuidland, a hamlet on the island of Putten, Dutch province of South Holland, where there was a small Flemish Mennonite church, which in the 17th century was more or less united with the Geervliet and Spijkenisse congregation. It died out before 1700. It is uncertain when this congregation was founded; it may have existed in the middle of the 16th century. Jan Jansz Brant, of Zuidland, a Mennonite martyr, was executed at Geervliet in 1559.
