Richard Blount, a preacher of the Brownist-Anabaptist group of Edward Barber in Amsterdam, was baptized by immersion in 1643 by the Collegiant Jan Batten, at the Collegiant center at Rijnsburg near Leiden, Holland. This was the beginning of baptism by immersion as the only acceptable method among the group now called Baptists.
