Christoph Lenert and his wife Anna [?] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 21 September 1766.

Christoph Lenert is recorded on a list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Christoph Lenert (age 20) and his brother Christoph (age 9) are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Beauregard in Household No. 32 along with their stepfather Johann Joachim Eimknecht [Jungknecht]. [It appears that the 9-year-old Christoph is probably Christian, the son of Johann Joachim Jungknecht rather than the brother of Christoph Lenert.]

It is not known in which colony they settled.

The 1767 census does not record from where the Lenert brothers came.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Lenert family among the Volga German colonies.
