Jan Echtwerken (d. 1534)

Jump to: navigation, search

Jan Echtwerken (Egtwerken, Egtwarken), from "Krommeniersdijk in Waterlandt" (Dutch province of North Holland), was an Anabaptist martyr, who was burned at the stake at The Hague in April 1534 (van Braght erroneously gives the date as 1542). K. Vos suggests that Jan Echtwerken is identical with Jan Walen, who is the same person as Jan Dirksz, burned at the stake at The Hague on 15 April 1534.
