Eveleens, a Dutch Mennonite family, found at Aalsmeer, North Holland, since about 1600, whose numerous members through more than three centuries belonged to the Mennonite church, and of whom a large number are still found among the Mennonites of the Aalsmeer congregation, where the name is very common. Dirk Eveleens was a preacher and elder of the Oude vermaning (Old Frisian congregation) on the Uiterweg, until this congregation merged in 1866 with the Zijdweg congregation.
