Gosen Heymans, an Anabaptist martyr, native of Bunschoten, Dutch province of North Holland, had attended a Mennonite meeting in the home of Steven Pietersz  at Amersfoort. Later he was also at a meeting in the house of Reyer Rutgersz at Bunschoten. For this he was arrested with his brother Jacob on 20 September 1568, and beheaded at Utrecht on 5 July 1569. Whether he was a member of the church cannot be ascertained.
