Thielman Naeberchs (Naebrechts), an Anabaptist martyr drowned on 27 January 1560, at Antwerp, Belgium, with three other brethren. In the hymn "Aenhoort God, hemelsche Vader," found in Offer des Heeren, this martyr is simply called Thielman. Van Braght's Martyrs' Mirror does not name him. Some particulars have been published by P. Génard: Thielman Naeberchs was a native of Milleghen (?) and a tailor by trade. He lived at Antwerp; his furniture was confiscated.
Dit Boec wort genoemt: Het Offer des Herren, om het inhout van sommighe opgheofferde kinderen Godts . . . N.p., 1570: 567, No. 62.
