Daele, van, family
Van Daele (van Daelle, van Dale, van Dalen) was a family name rather common among the Flemish-Dutch Anabaptists and Mennonites. Four martyrs bearing this name were executed in Belgium: Lyntgen (Linken) van Dale and Heynderick van Dale, both executed at Antwerp in 1562, and Guillaume van Dale and Maurissus van Dale, both executed at Ghent, in 1562 and 1573 respectively. In the early seventeenth century members of the van Daele family were numerous in Aardenburg and Cadzand in the Dutch province of Zeeland. They were engaged in farming, and some of them were deacons of the church. Bardiolomeus van Daele (van Dale), a farmer, moved from Etichinenear Oudenaerden in Flanders, Belgium, to Cadzand, where he became a preacher about 1629. This family name was also found in Rotterdam and Haarlem, Holland. In Haarlem some of the van Dale (van Dalen) family were deacons, while Anton van Dale (1638-1708) was a preacher mere, as also was Mathys van Dalen (d. 1707), for whom his colleague D. Voorhelm held a funeral sermon, Lyck-Reden (Haarlem, 1707). Jacob Cornelisz van Dalen (1608-1664) was a preacher in Amsterdam. It could not be determined whether the bearers of this name were related or not.
