Lulofs was a Mennonite family, living at Leer, East Friesland, Germany, since the 17th century. A branch of this family in the early 18th century moved to Amsterdam, where Warner Lulofs became a deacon of the Lamist congregation in 1735. A descendant of this family was Sicco Lulofs (b. 1849 at Amsterdam, d. 1927 at The Hague), who 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 only a number of sermons. His colleague G. Wuite Jz of The Hague wrote his obituary in Doopsgezind ]aarboekje of 1929.
