de Rijk family of Hilversum, Noord Holland

Boo-hoo !!
It's awfully lonely on this forum.
My latest research indicates that before Laren, my de Rijks came from nearby Hilversum (Noord-Holland). Jacob de Rijk, married to Elisabeth Groen, was a soldier from Hilversum and he and Elisabeth are recorded as both having died there sometime before their grandson's marriage in 1813. As their son Willem Jacobszen de Rijk is mentioned in local records as having moved from Hilversum to Laren in 1764 (presumably as a young man looking for work - he was not yet married) I am sticking my neck out and estimating a birth date for him in the late 1740s. So could Jacob and Elisabeth have been born in the late 1720s? That's just a rough guide. Being a Catholic family, the LDS have no information on them as many Catholic records are denied to the LDS for microfilming. My next plan is to contact the Catholic archive in Haarlem to see if they would look up some names for me. But if anyone out there has extra info I'd love to know.
All the best,
Peter de Ryk
