Tymen Claesz Honich, born about 1550, died between 1605 and 1612, was a follower of Robert Robbertsz. He may have been a sailor. He apparently lived at Amsterdam as a member of the Frisian congregation, from which he was banned because of marrying a nonmember of the group. He published some pamphlets: Eene grondelijckye verklaringhe van den echtelijcken staet (about 1591), in which he defended intermarriage; in his Gedeeltheyt der Tongen int leeren vant Ampt der Overheyt (1596) he defends his view that no church is the true Christian church; his Christalijnen Bril (1602, repr. 1612) sharply attacks the Calvinist ministers Geldorp and Bogerman, who had insisted that the government persecute the Mennonites.
