Dirk Pieters Lenige was a Mennonite merchant at Makkum, Dutch province of Friesland, a friend of the Mennonite ministers J. Stijl and Matthias van Geuns, and had a keen interest in Mennonite church matters. In 1778-1792 he wrote a number of poems in the Frisian language, some of which were published by G. A. Wumkes in the periodical Yn ús eigen Tael (1915), 61-74. His daughter Cynthia (Kynke) Lenige (1755-1780) was an artist; she did some remarkably good drawings. A volume of her poems in the Dutch language entitled Mengeldichten was published in Amsterdam in 1782 after her death.
