.For more information on Lijsbet van Wijk and her descendants, see the excellent article by Margaret Cairns - Elizabeth van Wyk, 1685-1720, in Familia vol 12., no.3, 1975, p.55-59.
This daughter of Lijsbet's is not mentioned in Cairns's article. She presumably died before 1718 when, according to Cairns, the joint will of Lijsbeth van Wijk and Nikolaas von Wieligh mentions only Christina and Willem as 'voorkinderen' of Lijsbet van Wijk.
