AD 1270?-1560?

Van Uitwijk (also Van Uijtwijck)

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

The earliest Van Uitwijk mentioned is Hubertus van Utwic (or Hubert van Uitwijk) in 1108. The Van Uitwijk family, which was once numerous and often appears in the ancient records, has become extinct long ago. The small village of Uitwijk near Woudrichem in "het Land van Altena", (see map) is however beautifully preserved. The original settlement and its surroundings were the personal possessions ("allodiaal bezit") of the heren van Uitwijk. In the 11th century Uitwijk was probably the centre of a group of small settlements, forming a network of pioneers in this swampy area who were all related to the Van Uitwijk family. The "motte" (or "hill", this one only a few meters high) on which the family's original fortification stood is still visible between the village and the "Alm", a small river. A monumental farm has been built in its place centuries ago.
