Rouveroy, Johannes van
(1670-1720), Dutch pastor

Johannes van Rouveroy (Roeveroy) was born in 1670 in an ancient family of Leiden. He immatriculated at the university of Leiden in 1685, where he graduated in 1694. From 1697 he was a pastor in Langeraar (Zuid-Holland), from 1700 a preacher in Leiden. In 1709, after the death of the regent of the Staten-College Petrus Hollebeek (1646-1709) he was appointed subregent; at the same time Robertus Aemilius (1663-1729), his later son-in-law, was promoted regent. Rouveroy died in February 1720 in Leiden. His work is: Disputatio theologica de carnium esu ante diluvium licito … praes. F. Spanheim. Leiden, 1693.

Robertus Aemilius, regent of the Staten-College, son-in-law of Rouveroy, also wrote in the album of Pápai Páriz (p. 227).
