Maeyken de Hont (Hondt), an Anabaptist martyr, drowned in a tub or wine-cask on 3 April 1560 within the Steen castle at Antwerp, Belgium, with Janneken Eghels (Janneken van Aken) and Lenaert Plovier. She was a daughter of Jan de Hont. In the Dutch martyrbooks, where no exact date of the execution is given, she is called Maeyken (Mayken) van Aken. Her name is found in the hymn "Aenhoort, Godt, hemelsche Vader" (Hear, O God, heavenly Father) of the Lietboecxken van den Offer des Heeren (hymn No. 16).
