Tongerloo, Van, family

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Tongerloo, Van, a Dutch Mennonite family found at Amsterdam from the 16th until the 18th century, when it died out. They were nearly all members of the Flemish, from 1664 of the Lamist church. Jasper van Tongerloo was a deacon in the early 17th century and Evert van Tongerloo from 1709. Clara van Tongerloo was married in 1605 to Jacob Haesbaert, who also later was a deacon. Clara was the daughter of a neighbor of Joost van den Vondel, the famous Dutch poet, who was at this time still a Mennonite and who celebrated her marriage in one of his first poems. The Tongerloo family was related to H. H. van Warendorp, and from 1632 Jasper van Tongerloo was one of the managers of his estate which included the present Singel Church until 1740. There were at times difficulties between members of the Tongerloo family and the deacons of the Flemish congregation concerning this heritage.
