Govert Aertsz, a cobbler, was beheaded at Utrecht in the Netherlands on 13 March 1535 because "he had kept the company of Anabaptists, rejected Purgatory, did not believe in the Holy Sacrament of the Mass, and thought that rebaptism was right." It is not clear that he was rebaptized. Probably he was not.
