Guert Jansdochter (d. 1538)
Guert Jansdochter (also called Guert Jan Mickersdochter) of Alkmaar, Dutch province of North Holland, was put to death because she had been (re) baptized and did not believe in the sacrament of the Mass. She was drowned at Alkmaar on 6 February 1538. She is thought to have been a follower of Batenburg, as was her mother, Stijntgen, Jan Mickers' widow, who was drowned at Alkmaar on 16 April 1540.
Doopsgezinde Bijdragen (1909): 24, where the name of Guert and the date of her death is incorrect.
