Cornelis Evertsz, an Anabaptist martyr, a shoemaker by trade, was born at Deventer, Dutch province of Overijssel. He had been baptized by Obbe Philips at Delft, province of South Holland, in the fall of 1534. When a persecution arose in Delft in March 1535 Cornelis left this town and settled in England. He was beheaded at Utrecht on 11 June 1539 because he had been (re)baptized. He was likely a brother of the martyr Jan Evertsz.
