Pieter (Pierre) van Maldeghem, an Anabaptist mar­tyr, a native of Nevele, Flanders, was burned at the stake with three others on the Vrijdagsmarkt at Ghent, Belgium, on 16 July 1562. Van Braght's Martyrs' Mirror only gives the year of execution, not the exact date. These martyrs are commemorated in the hymn "Alsmen schreef duyst vijfhondert jaer ende twee en tsestich mede," found in the 1578 and following editions of the Lietboecxken.
