About Jacob Victorian Leisler

Nur der Abzug der Spanier 1632 brachte eine kurze Atempause, und noch 1632 berief die wallonische Gemeinde mit Jacques Victorien Leisler aus Genf nochmals einen eigenen Pfarrer, der aber 1636, wie die anderen reformierten Pfarrer und Schulmeister, von den zurückgekehrten Spaniern ausgewiesen wurde.

From: http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/Jacob_Leisler.aspx

(Jacob) Leisler’s grandfather, Dr. Jacob Leisler, employed his Calvinistic zealotry as legal council to Prince Christian of Anhalt. Dr. Leisler sent his son Jacob Victorian Leisler to the University of Altdorf and later to Geneva University where he came under the powerful influence of Calvinist reformer Theodore Beza, author of the Right of Magistrates (1574). The younger Leisler became a reformed Calvinist pastor to many Huguenot exiles, a ministry that gained him considerable note.
