Vogel, de, family
De Vogel, a Dutch Mennonite family, died out at the end of the 18th century. Members of this family were found at Leiden until 1710 and particularly in the Amsterdam Lamist church; as early as 1622 Salomon de Vogel was a member of this church. He was one of the deacons of six Dutch Mennonite congregations, who on 20 May 1661, petitioned the magistrates of Bern in behalf of their Swiss coreligionists, who were being persecuted.
They were loyal members of the church. Some of them left property to the church. Many of them served as deacons at Leiden, Jan de Vogel serving in the Flemish congregation until 1664; his son Willem de Vogel 1679-1684. A Thomas de Vogel was a deacon of the Leiden Waterlander congregation until 1672 and Willem de Vogel from 1676 in the same church. Deacons at Amsterdam were Jan de Vogel Thomasz 1709-1715 and 1721-1726, and his son Thomas de Vogel 1731-1737, 1741-1747, and 1755-1760. Cornelis de Vogel Leonardsz at Danzig and Leonard Thomas de Vogel belonged to this family.
