Kloosterburen (Groningen, Netherlands)

Jump to: navigation, search

Kloosterburen was a hamlet in the Dutch province of Groningen, formerly the seat of a Mennonite congregation which also included the neighboring hamlets of Leens and Vliedorp. (It was also called the Marne congregation, after the district in which these hamlets are situated.) This congregation belonged to the Old Flemish branch. The congregation is mentioned in 1616 and still existed in 1683, but had died out before 1731, for it does not appear in the first Naamlijst of that year.
