Cornelis Luytsz (or Luytgensz), an Anabaptist martyr of "Krommenieerdijk in Waterlandt," Dutch province of North Holland, was put to death in The Hague on 15 April 1534 with unusual brutality, along with Jan Dirksz (also called Jan Walen) and Dirk Gerritsz. These three brethren had traveled together to Bergklooster en route to Münster, but were arrested on their way. This execution is placed erroneously by van Braght (Martyrs’ Mirror) in the year 1542 and also in another place in 1527, without mentioning the place of execution.
