Jan Munter, b. 1570, d. about 1620, and his wife, Sara van Tongerloo, b. 1578, d. after 1639, were members of the Waterlander congregation at Amsterdam. As owner of the former bakery of the East India Company, he placed this building at the disposal of a group of English Brownists in 1608, who under the leadership of John Smyth had separated from the main body. In 1615 this group, then led by Thomas Pigott—Smyth had died in 1612—merged with the Mennonite Waterlander congregation. The English, using their own language in the meetings, continued to hold services in the "Jan Munter's bakhuis" until 1639, the year of Pigott's death.
