" The honorable officer, plaintiff, against Engeltjen Cornelissen, defendant. The plaintiff says that the defendant on the 14th of September went into the house of Wynant, the cabinet maker (kistemaecker), and without any cause insulted and beat said Wynant's wife, named Tryntie Melgers, for which assault, committed against the law, he demands reparation and justice. The defendant admits having committed such and assault, not in the house, but on the door sill, thereof, having first been attacked by Tryntie Melgerts and offers to prove this on the next court day. The court, having heard the parties, orders the defendant to prove her assertion by sufficient witnesses." (Year 1657) 
"Court' Minutes, 1680-1685 pg. 308-9 Ordinary session held in Albany, January 2, 1682/3 Wynant Gerritse, plaintiff, against Jan Buys, defendant. The defendant was ordered at the last session of the court to produce evidence in connection with his suit about the board money, whereupon Ands. Carstense, being sworn, declares that he accidentally happened to come to Wynant Gerritse’s house, where the defendant had some dispute with the plaintiff, the plaintiff claiming from him some days’ work. The defendant said: “Render me an account and I shall pay you. I owe you no work.” The deponent says that the defendant duly offered to pay, whereupon Tryntie Melgerse said: “Get out of the house; what have you got to do with it?” The plaintiff says that some months after the date when Andries Carstense was at his house he made an agreement with the defendant. Jan Cornelise Vyselaer also declares that about a year ago he heard that the plaintiff and the defendant quarreled with each other and that Wynant demanded money for board, whereupon Jan Buys said: “I shall pay you in money or work.”  The defendant requests that he may be paid for his expenses and the time he has lost now, considering that he paid the plaintiff 6 gl. too much, to wit, for 24 days’ board, at 2 gl. per day according to agreement, there was due 48 gl., for which he worked 5 j/2 days in the harvest, amounting to fl.44, and sailed 2 days, at fl.10, making together fl.54."
