Personal details
Diedc. 18 September 1322

Van Oudshoorn descended from a noble Hollandic house; he was the son of Willem and brother of Dirk van Oudshoorn (1301–1327), lords of Oudshoorn and Aarlanderveen.[1] Van Oudshoorn was deacon in Utrecht before he was elected bishop. He was consecrated by the archbishop of Cologne, Hendrik II van Virnenburg, but pope John XXII only accepted his nomination after the payment of a large amount of money, which ruined his family. Shortly after this he died, according to his own suspicions, from poison. He was called brave, learned and pious.
