Dirk Andriesz (Dierick Andriessen), an Anabaptist martyr, was beheaded at Zierikzee, Dutch province of Zeeland, on 22 October 1569. He was a native of Oorschot in de Kempen, Belgium, and is said to have been a Mennonite. By trade he may have been an itinerant merchant or hawker, for his peddler's pack was publicly sold for two guilders and six pennies.
