Claes Dirksz, an Anabaptist martyr, taken prisoner at Krommeniedijk, Dutch province of North Holland, was, according to van Braght (<em>Martyrs’ Mirror</em>) put to death in 1542. This is certainly wrong. In all probability it was 1534 (see  <em>Doopsgezinde Bijdragen</em> 1917), on 27 April. Claes, who had participated in the journey to  Münster in March 1534 (see Bergklooster), was beheaded.
