Willem de Kistemaker (Wilhelm Kistenmacker), an Anabaptist martyr, executed in 1551 at Kleve in the Rhineland, Germany, together with Wendel Ravens. Van Braght gives the information that Willem had left his native country, probably Hol­land, and was living at Weess(?) near Kleve. He is said to have written some letters from prison, concerning which there is, however, no further information.
