Personal life[edit]

He was born in Trondenes as the son of bailiff Jens Holmboe (1752–1804) and his wife Anna Margrethe Irgens (1766–1851). He had several brothers and sisters.[1] His brothers Hans and Leonhard Christian became involved in politics, so did his nephew Jens Holmboe.

In 1823 he married Maren Johanne Rønning, who hailed from Lofoten. The couple had five sons and five daughters.[2]


He was elected to the Norwegian Parliament in 1839, representing the constituency of Finmarkens Amt (which at that time included Finnmark and Troms). He served only one term.[3]

He worked as a merchant and vice consul.[3]
