Lieven van de Walle, an Anabaptist martyr, was beheaded on 5 June 1536 in front of the Gravensteen Castle at Ghent, Belgium. In the records of the bailiff he is called a "Lutheran," but this is merely the general indication of heresy. In fact he was an Anabaptist, having received (re-) baptism on his faith. By trade he was a barber. Willem van de Walle (a brother of Lieven?) had already on 4 August 1535 been banished from Ghent because of his Anabaptist opinions. Many members of the van de Walle family were Mennonites, some of whom died as martyrs.
