Houbraken was a Dutch Mennonite family of artists living at Dordrecht in the province of South Holland. In the records of the "Lam and Toren" Mennonite congregation of Amsterdam, there are also found some van Houbrakens who were members of this congregation. Arnoldus Houbraken, born 1660 at Dordrecht, moved to Amsterdam 1708, died there 1719, wrote Groote Schouwburgh der Nederlandsche Konstschilders (1718, reprinted 1758 and 1943). He also painted a number of portraits. His son Jacob Houbraken (1698-1780), who is well known for his engraved portraits, was Reformed.
