Tiete Popkes (1695-1770), in 1721 became a lay preacher and in 1732 an elder of the Groningen Old Flemish congregation in Humsterland in the Dutch province of Groningen. He was a farmer, living near Oldehove. By order of the Groningen Old Flemish Mennonite conference he drew up a confession of faith, Een beknopt ontwerp of schets van de Geloofsbelydenisse der Mennonyten onder de benaminge van oude Vlaamingen, published at Groningen in 1749. His son Jacob Tietes (1734-1821), a farmer at Ter Horne near 't Zandt in the province of Groningen, who was a preacher of the Leermens Mennonite congregation after 1763, took the family name of Huizinga. The grandson of Tiete Popkes, also called Tiete Popkes (1772-18?), took the family name of Gaaikema.
