Hendrik van (Hinrich or Heyndrick van Goch) Maeren (Maren), a former Catholic priest who became an active Sacramentist preacher at Warendorf, Westphalia, Germany, in the summer of 1533. On 5 January 1534, he joined the Anabaptists by baptism at Münster together with Rothmann, Rol, Stapraet, and other Münster preachers. Then he again was active at Warendorf, baptizing a number of persons, with whom he went to Münster on 17 February 1534. In October he was one of the apostles sent out to convert the world, but a few days after leaving Münster he was arrested at Soest, Westphalia, and beheaded there on 23 October, together with Dusentschuer, Slachtscaep, and five others.
