Jan van Delft, of Amsterdam, a fuller, was one of the first Anabaptists in the Netherlands. With nine others he was arrested and sentenced to death be­cause of heresy and rebaptism. Like most of this group, Jan recanted. He was beheaded at The Hague on 5 December 1531. The other victims were Jan Volkertsz (Trypmaker); Evert Jansz, a cobbler from Coesfeld in the territory of Münster, Germany; Frans Willems; Gerrit (Geryt) Meynerts, a goldsmith; Jan Hermansz (Lange Jan Houtstapelaer), born at Haarlem; Jan Gouweszn, a fuller; Thomas Janszn; Jan Thomaszn; and Vranck Willemszn.)
