Stijl, a Mennonite family formerly found at Harlingen, Dutch province of Friesland. Its members, most of whom were engaged in trade and manu­facture, were related by marriage to other Mennon­ite families of Harlingen like Hannema, Hanekuik, and Oosterbaan. Johannes Stijl, born 1758 at Harlin­gen, died there 15 June 1802, studied at the University of Franeker and the Amsterdam Mennonite semi­nary and served as pastor in the Mennonite congre­gations of Emmerich 1786-1788 and Makkum 1788-1792. The most prominent member of this family was Simon Stijl (1731-1804), a practicing physician at Harlingen, and the author of some important liter­ary and historical works; he did not join the Mennonite Church.
