Claes-Wolters-Volk, was a designation for the followers of Claes Wolters Cops (see Kops), a Mennonite preacher in the Dutch town of Haarlem, United High German and Frisian congregation. Cops and his followers in 1611 separated from this congregation, whose leader was Leenaert Clock. As late as 1635 the name of Claes-Wolters-Volk was still common for a group of High German Mennonites at Leiden, Holland.
