Louwerens Willemszen (Lourens Willems, L. W. van Akkmaer), a deacon of the Rotterdam Old Flemish congregation, was vigorously opposed to the conciliatory Olyftack confession (1626) inasmuch as this confession was intended to unite several branches of Dutch Mennonites, and also to the merger of the Flemish and Old Flemish branches in 1632. Willemszen and a few other conservatives tried, but in vain, to retain the Rotterdam Old Flemish meetinghouse for their small group, which did not share in the merger. During these quarrels Willemszen published some booklets: Een korte onderscheydelycke vertooninghe aan onze Mede-ghenoten des Gheloofs (Rotterdam, 1629), Aarons Roede Vertoond . . . aan onze Medeghenooten des Gheloofs   (Amsterdam, 1630, 3d ed. Rotterdam, 1633), Ezelinnen Zoon (Rotterdam, 1633), and Kakeben of Ezels Kinnebakken (Rotterdam, 1636).
