Heynrick Cornelisz (d. 1535)
Heynrick Cornelisz, an otherwise unknown Anabaptist martyr, was arrested at Leiden, Dutch province of South Holland, on the night of 24 January 1535 and beheaded on 3, 4, or 5 February of that year at Leiden. Together with a number of other martyrs Heynrick died singing. He was probably an adherent of Münsterite principles, though this fact is not evident from the sentence.
