Aert Jansz (d. 1538)
Aert Jansz, a Dutch martyr and joiner by trade, of "Osche" (Oss in Brabant?), was decapitated and "the head placed on a stake" at Delft in the Dutch province of South Holland on 7 January 1538, together with ten others, because they had been rebaptized. Probably they were followers of David Joris.
