Pieter van Dokkumburg (Dokkenburg), a son of S. P. van Dokkumburg, who was born on 22 January 1737 at Venhuizen, and died 2 May 1811 at Koog aan de Zaan, was a Mennonite minister. He served the congregations of Oudesluis, 1758-1763; Twisk, 1763-1770; and Koog-Zaandijk, 1770-1811. He trained a large number of young men for the ministry, for (like his father) he followed the principles of the Zonists and opposed the (Lamist) Amsterdam Theological Seminary. He wrote: Verhandelingen over wysgerige onderwerpen; De Wederleggende Godgeleerdheid; Het Stelzel van de Godgeleerdheid, all of which are found in manuscript in the [[Amsterdam Mennonite Library (Bibliotheek en Archief van de Vereenigde Doopsgezinde Gemeente te Amsterdam)|Amsterdam Mennonite Library]]. These treatises may have been composed for his theological students.
