Griet (Griete) Pieter Mollendochter, an Anabaptist martyr, was drowned at Amsterdam on 21 May (van Braght, Martyrs' Mirror, 15 May), 1535, together with ten other women. She was a native of Amsterdam. She confessed that she had been (re) baptized by Jan Matthysz of Middelburg in the home of Trijn Jans de Bacxter at Amsterdam in November 1534. Griete said that she did not repent her baptism and died willingly.
