Adriaen Pietersz (or A. Pier Trappers), an Anabaptist martyr, lived at Winkel in the Dutch province of North Holland. He was burned at the stake in the Hague on 7 July 1558, because he had taken part in Anabaptist meetings and intended to be rebaptized. He was thus not yet a member of the congregation. Waechlink Dirks and Maerten Cornelisz died with him.
