Cornelis Dircxs was an otherwise unknown Dutch Anabaptist martyr, whose name is found in a list of martyrs and who was burned at the stake on 22 December 1568. Place of execution was likely The Hague. According to the charge made against him, he had attended a wedding at Brielle, performed by Jan Willems "in accord with the teaching of Menno."
