Barend Rusburg (ca. 1767-9 May 1856), a son of Jan Rusburg of Haarlem, and Maria Tirion, was a Dutch Mennonite minister. At first he was employed in the office of his uncle Tirion, a noted bookseller of Amsterdam. Then he decided to study theology. He was a student in the Amsterdam Mennonite Seminary 1801-1804, and thereupon served the congregations of Aalsmeer 1805-1807, Hengelo 1807-1828, and Kampen 1828-1851; in 1851, at the age of eighty-five, he retired. Rusburg published a translation of the prophecies of Micah from the Hebrew (Amsterdam, 1832) and a short biography of two Mennonite industrialists in Hengelo, Iets over W(olter) and J(ohannes) ten Cate als oprigters der fabrijken (n.p., n.d.).
