Many members of this family were deacons of the various congregations found at Aalsmeer. A member of this family was Jan Maarse, b. 1886 at Amsterdam. He earned his doctorate in chemistry at the University of Amsterdam in 1913, served as a professor of chemistry 1914-1930. During this time he began the study of theology at the University and the Mennonite Seminary of Amsterdam. Becoming a ministerial candidate in 1932, he served the congregations of Krommenie-Wormer-Jisp 1932-1947 and Edam-Monnikendam 1947-1951. In this year he retired. In 1936 he obtained his Th.D. degree (thesis: Een psychologische en zedekundige studie over de begrippen eer en eergevoel). Besides this and a number of papers in chemical and theological periodicals, he edited in 1939 and 1947, together with N. Westendorp Boerma, two posthumous works of I. J. de Bussy and in 1955 a psychological-ethical study, Toom, haat en zelfbeheersing (Anger, Hatred, and Self-control).
