Jan Hubrechts, a sheriff of Amsterdam, was in sympathy with the Anabaptists and obstructed the policy of the government concerning their persecution. When the representatives of the Court of Holland came to Amsterdam (November 1531) to arrest a number of Anabaptists, Jan Hubrechts sent them a warning by his maidservant so that they could escape. Jan Hubrechts was dismissed on 25 February 1534. Though an opponent of Roman Catholic practices, he was not an Anabaptist. He is called a nieuw-gesinde, i.e., a Sacramentist.
