Jan Evertsz was a preacher of the United Mennonite congregation at Haarlem, Holland, meeting at den Blok on the Klein Heiligland. In 1670, when this congregation was divided into a Lamist and a more conservative Zonist group, Evertsz joined the latter. In 1680 a schism arose in this Zonist group between Jan Evertsz and Thomas Snep. In 1685 Thomas Snep left the Zonist group with the majority of the members, leaving behind a small number, of whom Jan Evertsz was the leader. Evertsz, who is said in his youth to have been a Catholic, was very conservative, and a violent antagonist of marriages outside of the congregation, and of audible prayer, which he rejected as an undesirable innovation. In 1658 he published Kort en bondig Bewijs, dat Dr Galenus Abrahamsz ende David Spruyt hebben een verheert en verleydelijck Verstaut, . . . (n.p.).
