Evert Jans, a cobbler of Coesfeld in the district of Münster, Westphalia, Germany, who was living in Amsterdam, was one of the first Anabaptists of the Netherlands. He was arrested in Amsterdam and on 5 December 1531 beheaded at The Hague together with nine other Anabaptists, including Jan Volkertsz Trypmaker. They all renounced their faith and for this reason were not included in the Dutch martyrbooks.
