Huybert op der Straaten (16th/17th century)

Jump to: navigation, search

Huybert op der Straaten, together with his wife Trijnken, Pieter ten Hove, and Lijsken te Linschoten, was beaten, robbed of his possessions, and banished from Homburg in 1601 because of his Anabaptist faith, at the instigation of Count Johann of Witgenstein. They were obviously of Dutch descent.
