AD 1370?-1730?

Van Rijswijk (younger branch)

For younger generations of ancestors who are descended from this family:
see page on Verhagen

The family name refers to a place called Rijswijk, of which there are a number in the Netherlands. This Rijswijk is the one in "het Land van Altena", see map. Much new information on this family was kindly provided by Dave Pol, visit his homepage. An earlier member of the Van Rijswijk family, who is also one of our ancestors must have been ? van Rijswijk, the wife of Gerrit Dircks de Borchgraeff, married around 1440. There are more possible links between the Van Rijswijk family and other families in our tree: Maria Schellaert, born around 1593, married Jacob van Rijswijk, born around 1575 (occupation heer van der Hille), son of Joost Joostzn van Rijswijk (occupation "schout" and "schepen" of Gorinchem) and Anna Jacobs Snoeck. We do not yet know the missing pieces in this puzzle.

Glimmer Jansz. "van Rijswijk"
(2 times our ancestor, blood-relationship 0,0031 %)
* 1395 (Veen) x Elisabeth Gheryt Jansdr. van Rijswijk (1427?)) + 1440? (Veen)
The title of heer Van Rijswijk was transferred to Glimmer Jansz. from his wife's family, the older branch of Van Rijswijk, which probably did not have any male heirs.
