Houttuyn was a Dutch Mennonite family, originally found at Hoorn, Dutch province of North Holland, of which some members were preachers in their native town and also at Amsterdam. Pieter Adriaensz Houttuyn (1683-1736) and Willem Houttuyn (1692-1756), a physician, were elders of the Frisian congregation of Hoorn (Willem serving 1721-1756), while Adriaan Houttuyn (ca. 1700-1777) was a preacher of the Waterlander congregation at Hoorn 1732-1777.

This Adriaan Houttuyn was an adherent of Collegiant principles, and of baptism by immersion. He published Eenige redenen om de in- of onderdompeling te verkiezen boven de besprenging (Hoorn, 1752). He preached a sermon, Redevoering over Handelingen XVI:30-34, at Rijnsburg on 2 June 1770, when he baptized by immersion (published Rotterdam, 1770).

When the Frisian and the Waterlander congregations of Hoorn had merged in 1747 Willem Houttuyn and Adriaan Houttuyn were its preachers, and also Jacob Houttuyn, a son of Pieter Adriaensz, born 1711 at Hoorn, died there 1789, serving in 1746-1789. A Frans Houttuyn of Hoorn (year of birth unknown), who may have belonged to this same family, settled in Amsterdam as a book printer and was a lay preacher of the Amsterdam Frisian ("Arke Noach") congregation 1750-1752, and after this congregation had merged with the Zonist congregation (1752) until his death in 1765. His son Martinus Houttuyn was a physician at Hoorn.

In Hoorn and Amsterdam a number of members of this family were deacons. The grandmother of J. G. de Hoop Scheffer, noted Mennonite minister, historian, and professor of the Seminary and the Amsterdam University, was Aagtje Houttuyn of Hoorn (1752-1818), a daughter of Preacher Jacob Houttuyn. Pieter Houttuyn of Hoorn was an ardent Patriot, who in 1787 together with P. Bel, another member of the congregation of Hoorn, fled from Hoorn to Brussels because of their anti-Orange principles. He was chorister (voorlezer en voorzanger) of the Hoorn congregation.
