Jan Boelaart, d. June 1762 at Harlingen, Dutch province of Friesland, author of the book, De voorzigtige leidsman om de H. Schriften met nut te lezen (Hoorn, 1770), was educated in Leiden and Amsterdam, where he studied at the Mennonite Seminary, and in 1744 became a ministerial candidate (proponent), and accepted the pulpit of the Mennonite church in Harlingen. Here he was very active when his colleague Johannes Stinstra was suspended by the Frisian government. In December 1760 he retired for reasons of health. He translated two of Samuel Clarke's books into Dutch, and also wrote: IV Godgeleerte Brieven over 't onderzoek der H. Schriften (Haarlingen, 1763).
