The title of heer Van Rijswijk was transferred to Glimmer Jansz. from his wife Elisabeth's family, because there were probably no other heirs. Glimmer Jansz. ("van Rijswijk") thus became the founder of the younger branch.
For Elisabeth's and Glimmer's descendants see the page on Van Rijswijk (younger branch).
