Henrik Willemsz Brand, born about 1555 at Delft, died 1627 at Zierikzee, was one of the first Reformed preachers in the Dutch province of Zeeland. He conducted a disputation in November 1608 at Colijnsplaat on Noord-Beveland with the Mennonite preacher Frans de Knuyt. This disputation was published by the Reformed congregation in 1609 and then reprinted in 1620 in Middelburg and in 1646 in Dordrecht.
