Willem van Haverbeke (Guillaume van Hamerbele), an Anabaptist martyr, was burned at the stake on 20 November 1561, at Kortrijk, Belgium, together with Absolon de Zanger. Willem, who was born at Gulleghem, a weaver by trade, lived at Meenen, Flanders. His property was confiscated. He is said to have been a preacher; in his home were found a number of heretical books and letters by Anabaptist leaders. (Van Braght's <em>Martyrs' Mirror</em> states wrongly that he was executed in 1558.)
