Elsgen Heynderic Schenckelberghsdochter, of Clever Ham (near Cleve, Germany?), an Anabaptist martyr, was put into a sack and drowned on 23 January 1539, at Delft, Dutch province of South Holland, because she had been rebaptized. Three other women were executed with her. She was probably a follower of David Joris.
