Dirck Houtstapeler (d. 1534)
Dirck Houtstapeler was an Anabaptists martyr executed at Zwolle, in the Dutch province of Overijssel, in March 1534. He was one of the three thousand Anabaptists who had sailed from Amsterdam to Bergklooster enroute to Münster, and seems to have been a principal leader on this journey. He was the husband of the martyr Baef Claesdochter.
