Jacob Theunisz (Teunis), born ca. 1569 at Leer, died 1625 at Emden, was a cloth merchant at Amsterdam and about 1620 a deacon of the Amsterdam Waterlander Mennonite church. He was married to Pietertgen Lubbertsdochter, the daughter of Elder Lubbert Gerritsz and was a loyal and liberal member of the church. All of his children were important leaders: Anthoni Jacobsz, surnamed Roscius, a physician and preacher at Hoorn; Lambert Jacobsz, a noted painter and preacher at Leeuwarden; Isaak Jacobsz Rooleeuw, a silk merchant at Amsterdam; and Jacob (Jacobus) Rooleeuw, a dyer and preacher at Amsterdam. The noted Dutch painter Abraham van den Tempel was his grandson, a son of Lambert Jacobsz.
