Claes Gerbrandsz, an Anabaptist martyr, was burned at the stake on 6 August 1552, at Amsterdam with five brethren, because he attended the meetings of the Mennonites. He came from Wormer, in the Dutch province of North Holland, and was a weaver by trade. At the time of his trial, he declared that he had heard Menno Simons preach more than 10 years before. He had not yet been baptized on the confession of his faith, although he would gladly have done so if he had had the opportunity. This case is again an indication that those who desired to be baptized sometimes had to wait for years before the elder considered them worthy. Claes and the other brethren endured the grim ordeal with all steadfastness.
