Lulofs was a Dutch Mennonite family who lived in Emden and in Leer, East Friesland, Germany, since the 17th century. The first known Mennonite Lulofs was Warner Lulofs (1627-1699) from Emden, where he served as a deacon in the church. He had at least nine children.
Another son of Warner, Sr., was Berent Lulofs (1674-d. between 1720-1726). Berent had at least two children. One of them was also named Warner (ca. 1700-1756). This Warner, his children and most of his grandchildren lived in Leer. Two of his grandchildren--Warner and Jan Doekes--went to Amsterdam, where they started a grain trade. Sicco Lulofs (1849-1927), a descendant of Warner, Sr., was a Mennonite pastor for more than 55 years, serving at Broek op Langendijk 1872-1875, Winterswijk 1875-77, Koog-Zaandijk 1877-1889, Deventer 1889-1901, and The Hague 1901-1927. For many years he was a trustee of the Algemene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit (Dutch General Mennonite Conference) and a curator of the Amsterdam Mennonite Seminary. He published a number of sermons. His colleague G. Wuite Jz of The Hague wrote his obituary in Doopsgezind ]aarboekje of 1929.
