Van Sintern (Sinteren), a family found in the Mennonite congregation of Hamburg-Altona, Germany, in the 16th-19th centuries. Pieter van Sinteren, whose daughter Elisabeth (1533-1624) was married to Geerlinck Roosen of Steinrade, Holstein, Germany, in 1565 or 1566, was a Mennonite and had probably moved from Holland or Flanders to Holstein about 1555. Heinrich van Sintern, a grandson of Pieter, was a tailor at Altona about 1600. Another Heinrich van Sintern was baptized at Lübeck in 1710. A Hinrich van (von) Sintern and Isaac van Sintern with his wife Neeltje Claesen and their children emigrated from Altona to Pennsylvania in the spring of 1700, where they joined the Germantown Mennonite congregation.
