Kramer was a Mennonite family in Hamburg, Germany, but is now extinct. They were a wealthy mercantile family, probably originally from Holland. Lourens Kramer (d. 1714), married to Adriana de Vos (Vosz), and his brother Lucas Kramer (d. 1719), married to Sara de Vos (Vosz), were important Greenland whalers. Lucas Kramer and Elisabeth and Susanna Kramer supported the building of a new meetinghouse at Altona in 1796. Pieter Kramer (d. 1796), three times a deacon of the church, bequeathed it 1,000 Marks.
