Dirk Danielsz. van Noortich, born in or around 1466 and dcpicted on the 'Epitaphium van wingacrden ons Heren aent cruis', now in the Catharijneconvent Museum, Utrecht, was appointed chaplain in Den Burg on the island of Texel in 1495. From 1497/ 98 until his death in 1504 he was the pastor of Sabbinge in the province of Zeeland. The Texcl post was probably due to the influence of the Leeuwenhorst sisters and members of his family, all of whom were connected with the instance which had the giving of the capelry in Den Burg the Hague court chapel. Dirk van Noortich presented a window to the Leeuwenhorst convent near Noordwijk(erhout), with which his family was closely linked. The family of another donor of the epitaph, Ticlman Jacobsz Oem van Wijngaarden, also had close ties with the Cistercian convent of Leeuwenhorst.
