De Vos, a common Dutch family name. Mennonites by this name were formerly found at Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Haarlem, and Hamburg-Altona. The relationship between these families could not be ascertained. At Rotterdam Anthoni de Vos was a deacon of the Flemish congregation in 1688-1690. Aplonie de Vos was a preacher of the Lamist congregation of Amsterdam in 1687-1695.
