Gijsbert Boomkamp, (born 1696, died 11 July 1755 at Alkmaar), son of the Cornelis Jansz Boomkamp, rendered valuable service to the historiography of Holland, both local and national. He wrote many books, most of which are found in the library at Amsterdam. Of these works we mention especially Stefanus de Diakon en Eerste Martelaar, ten voorbeelde in Rijm gebracht (Alkmaar, 1743), in which he defended the view that alms collected from believers in church should be used exclusively for the poor.
