Gerrit (Gheryt) Claesz, from Oude-Niedorp, Dutch province of North Holland, an Anabaptist martyr, was beheaded at Amsterdam on 15 May 1535, together with Adriaen Cornelis and Jan Jacobsz. He had been (re)baptized at "de Rijp binnen Oude Nyerop" in March 1534 but did not know the man who baptized him. The sentence is found in van Braght, Martyrs' Mirror.
