Cecilia Jheronimusd, an Anabaptist martyr, the wife of Jacob Claesz of Landsmeer, was burned at the stake at Amsterdam, 9 November 1549, together with her husband. This Cecilia, who was a native of the village of Wormer, is the same person as the martyr Seli listed by van Braght, whose martyrdom he places in 1542.
