Schumacher, Hans (d. 1539)
Hans Schumacher of Wynstägen (erroneously called Wünistern by van Braght), Safenwyl, in the Swiss canton of Aargau, an Anabaptist martyr who was executed in Bern on 3 June 1539. After his execution his family and relatives fled to the canton of Basel. Kaspar Schuhmacher of Safenwyl, who was an Anabaptist preacher in Basel early in the 17th century, no doubt belonged to this family.
