Ruysch Jansz (Ruysch Jan Beths) was a burgomaster of Amsterdam, who was in sympathy with the Anabaptists in 1531-35, like some other magistrates of Amsterdam, such as Jan Hubrechts, Pieter Colijn, and Heyman Jacobsz. He protected them against persecution and was accused of permitting a large number of them to set sail from Amsterdam enroute to Münster. Ruysch was, however, not an Anabaptist.
