Jacob (Jacques) Schot (Jacob de Goudsmid, i.e., Goldsmith) was drowned in a tub in the Steen castle prison at Antwerp, Belgium on 1 February 1560, with Gomer de Clercq (Gomer de Metselaer) and Pedro de Soza (Pieter van Spagnien). The names of these martyrs are celebrated in a hymn "Aenhoort Godt, hemelsche Vader" (Hear, 0 God, heavenly Father), No. 16 of the Lietboecxken van den Offer des Heeren, where they are called Gommer Metser, Peter van Spaengen, and Jacob Goutsmit.
