Pauls (Pauels, Pauwels, Paulsen), a family name common among Mennonites of Prusso-Russian back ground which was found in the Danzig and Prussian Mennonite churches as early as 1621; e.g., Thiensdorf, Orloff, Danzig, Elbing, Konigsberg, Montau-Gruppe, Kazun, and Heubuden. The origin of the name is Paulsen (son). Heinrich Pauls was a minister of the Mennonite Church in Galicia. In the late 1950s, Jacob M. Pauls was co-elder of the Bergthal Mennonite Church of Manitoba and Wilhelm Pauls, founder of the Didsbury Bible School, Alberta, was a minister.
