Fennema was a Dutch Mennonite family, living at Sneek, Friesland, one of whom was Enno ten Cate Fennema (1849-1929), a notary public at Sneek and a pillar of the Mennonite congregation in this town; he was also a member of the First Chamber of the Dutch States-General. In 1898, when the law for compulsory military service was passed in the Netherlands, abolishing the system of substitution which has since 1796 made it possible for the Mennonites (and others) to avoid military service, Fennema voted against this law, because many Mennonites still had objections to military service.
