The grandfather of Sweelinck (called Swibbert van Keysersweert) and his brother (Gerrit Swybberts) were organist here. The father of Jan Pieterszoon moved to Amsterdam with his family when Jan Pieterszoon was still young. They are mentioned on a memorial tablet under the organ, which lists the organists of the church.
