FrederikJ aarsma was a Dutch Mennonite preacher, serving the Waterlander congregation at Leeuwarden ca. 1710-1726; here he became involved in a quarrel with some members of the church who insisted on baptism by immersion. In 1726 he moved to Vlissingen, where he served until about 1752 (he did not die in 1726 as is stated in Doopsgezinde Bijdragen 1874, 73). His son Hermannus Jaarsma, after studying at the University of Franeker and the Amsterdam Theological Seminary, served as minister in the Mennonite congregations of Gouda 1740-1744 and Emmerich, Germany, 1744-1783.
