Cornelis Ballincx (Balling, Baílings, Ballinghsz), a weaver at Rotterdam, Holland, at first a member of the Waterlander Mennonites, then a member and elder of the High German Mennonites, finally joining the Flemish church of Rotterdam, where he was an elder 1639-1644. In 1644 he moved to Haarlem, where he also was an elder, at least until 1648. He was a very quarrelsome man, who was opposed by leaders like Eduard Nabels and Hans de Ries. During his High German period he was an influential man; he was the first after Jan Cents to sign the Jan Cents confession of 1630.
