Hans van Leeuwarden, an Anabaptist preacher at Amsterdam 1534-35, who performed baptism in the house of the deacon Jan Paeuw. He was a locksmith or a maker of bags by occupation. Mellink supposes that he is identical with Hans Scheerder; but it is also possible that he is the same person as Jan van Geelen (a Jan van Leeuwarden is named at the same time in Amsterdam, whose wife was Fenne, which was also the name of Jan van Geelen's wife). At any rate he was a rather influential leader of the revolutionary wing of Anabaptism, who was also active in the Dutch province of Groningen.
