Mennonite Early History

Heubuden Mennonite Church
In 1565 there were in the area of Heubuden some Mennonite renters who were making their payments to the Koczelitzki. Until the middle of the 17th century the congregation apparently had no preacher. In 1662 Herrenhagen was settled.
Heubuden was a village in the former Free City of Danzig, three miles northwest of Marienburg, the seat of the former Mennonite congregation Heubuden-Marienburg, which was the largest rural congregation of East Germany.[1]

Mennonite's in the 18th Century

The king of Poland reinvigorated the collection of a "protection tax" for Jews and Mennonites in 1750.[2] This drove many into financial ruin,[2] adding to the difficulties of their social environment. They struggled to maintain their religious identity, and continue to honor their traditions (such as adult only baptisms).[2] Although the Mennonites were allowed to be free from military service once Prussia assumed rule;[3] it was tied to the right to own land.[2] Many Prussian Mennonites left to settle in southern Russia, where they could own land.[2]
