Martha Baerts, an Anabaptist martyr, was secretly beheaded on 20 November 1560 in the Gravensteen castle at Ghent, Belgium, with Soetken van den Houtte and Lynken Pieters. Martha was a native of Oudenaerde in Flanders. Van Braght's Martyrs Mirror gives her name simply as Martha, and erroneously gives 27 November as the date of her death.
