Winkelman, a Dutch Mennonite family stemming from Mennonites from Flanders, Belgium. Pieter Janse Wynckelman (Winkelman) was from 1625 a deacon of the Flemish congregation at Rotterdam; there were also Winkelmans at Vlissingen, where some of them were deacons in the 19th and 20th centuries. One of them, Henrik Pierre Winkelman (Vlissingen, 1813-1878), an apothecary and for many years the chairman of the local congregation, published a paper on the history of the Vlissingen congregation in Doopsgezinde Bijdragen of 1875. B. J. Winkelman was moderator of the Mennonite Kring (circle), later congregation, of Eindhoven 1928-1942.
