    • Jan Peeck is described as part Indian Trader, part broker between the English and the Dutch merchants, and part general speculator. Maria continued with her second husband to operate the tavern, but Jan Peeck's trading expeditions made it necessary for him to be away from home for long intervals, at which time his very capable wife managed the tavern business. It was in 1664, while thus engaged, that the authorities at New Amsterdam accused her of the serious offense of selling liquor to the Indians. That she must have been guilty of "bootlegging" is evident, as she was fined 500 guilders, and banished from New Amsterdam.

      Maria is said, at this time, to have taken up her residence in the settlement of Schenectady, for a short period; but the English took control of New Amsterdam the following year, and Maria soon returned to New York and took up her residence in a house on Hough Street.
