Seli, an Anabaptistmartyr, who is reported by van Braght to have been burned at the stake at Amsterdam in 1542. Van Braght calls her the wife of Jacob van Wormer. It seems, however, that van Braght is in error; no martyr by this name is found in the official records. Seli is probably identical with Cecilia Jheronimusd, wife of Jacob Claesz van Landsmeer, who was burned at the stake at Amsterdam on 9 November 1549, together with her husband.
