Jan Tade (16th century)
Jan Tade (Jan Taet, also Jan Hermenss or Jan de Buidelmaker) was called "one of the principal Anabaptist leaders" by van Batenburg during his trial at Vilvoorde in 1538. Tade, born at Kampen, Dutch province of Overijssel, and living at Alkmaar, Dutch province of North Holland, was arrested at Utrecht in 1539, together with a number of Anabaptists, including Derckgen, the wife of David Joris. By his persistent denial that he was ever rebaptized or belonged to the Anabaptists he was set free. A number of places are known in which he was active.
