Bruyn, a Mennonite family of Amsterdam, related by marriage to many well-known Mennonite families, such as Centen, Cramer, Heiliger, Hulshoff, Kops, van Oosterwijk, Schellinger, van Vollenhoven. They were members of the Lamist congregation of Amsterdam. Some of the family served as deacons: Willem B., 1669-1674; Ysbrand B., 1702-1707 and 1716-1721; Abraham B., 1779-1784. Three ministers of the Bruyn family were C. C. Bruyn, who published Vijf en twintig predicatien (Leeuwarden, 1692) (the congregation which he served is unknown), Kornelis Bruyn, who served Sneek in 1746-1772 and Nijmegen in 1772-1783, and Pieter Bruyn (1830-2897), who was pastor of the congregation of Rottevalle-Witveen 1854-1855, and Alkmaar 1855-1862. In 1862 he resigned, because his extreme modernistic theological views were not accepted by his congregation.

The C. C. Bruyn mentioned here was Cornelis Claesz Bruyn (Bruin), a preacher in the Amsterdam Old Frisian Bloemstraat congregation, the father of Claas Bruin. Kornelis Bruyn served at Sneek 1746-1757, Aardenburg 1757-1763, Sneek 1763-1772, and Nijmegen 1772-1783. Probably neither belonged to this patrician Amsterdam family.
