Voogt (Voogd, Voocht), a Dutch family name. Jacob Jansen Voogt was a preacher of the Waterlander Mennonites at Leeuwarden in Friesland; in 1687 he was banished from the town under suspi­cion of Socinianism, but this sentence was mitigated and Voogt was allowed to preach again on condition that his sermons be examined by a Reformed pastor before he preached them. This man is probably identical with the Jacob Janse Voocht who was a weaver at Amsterdam 1671-ca. 1682 and was a leader of the "College" (see Collegiants) there.

The West Prussian Mennonite Vogt family is apparently not related to the Dutch Voogt family. Nor is there any connection between the Swiss, South German, and American Vogt family name and this Dutch name.
