Pierson (erroneously Piseron), Pierken, a Mennonite from Antwerp, Belgium, who had fled to the Netherlands to escape persecution and settled at Harlingen, Friesland, where he played a part in the Flemish-Frisian strife in 1566. He sided with the Flemish, but in 1574 he is said to have been chosen preacher by the Frisians (stated in a letter by Hans Busschaert); he then had some trouble because he refused to "avoid" his former Flemish friends. By trade he was a maker of buttons.
