Jerónimo de Ayanz y Beaumont (1553 – 23 March 1613) was a Spanish soldier, painter, musician and inventor.

He was born in Guendulain (Navarre). He is best remembered for the invention of a steam-powered water pump for draining mines,[1] for which he was granted a patent by the Spanish monarchy in 1606. He died from a serious illness in Madrid, in 1613.[2]
