Halewijn (French, Halluin), a town (pop. 13,000) just across the Belgian border in northern France, which in the 16th century belonged to the Southern Netherlands, was the scene of Anabaptist activity in the middle of that century.  In 1561 there seems to have been a congregation here, several members of which were executed in 1563.
