History

The village was first mentioned in the 13th century as Terdenghe, and means "settlement of the people of Teerd". [4] Tirns is a little terp (artificial living hill) village near the former Middelzee. It was connected to Franeker via a canal. [5]

The church was built in 1699 as a replacement of the medieval church. The cemetery was used both by the Protestant and Catholics. The monastery Thabor was located about one kilometre south of Tirns and was a priory of the Augustinians founded in 1406. [5] The monks of the priory constructed several dikes in the area. [6] The monastery was destroyed in 1572 by the Geuzen. [5]

Tirns was home to 290 people in 1840. [6] Before 2011, the village was part of the Wymbritseradiel municipality. [6]
