      (2) Purple, Edwin R., "Contributions to the History of the Ancient Families of New York: Varleth-Varlet-Varleet-Verlet-Verleth," New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol. 9 (1878), pp. 113-125:

      MARIA DE PEYSTER, dau. of Jan (or Johannes) and Cornelia (Lubberts) de Peyster. She was born Sept. 5, bap. Sept. 7, 1659, and became a communicant of the Dutch Church, June 10, 1682, This lady, whom we regard, by reason of her birth and alliances, as one of the most remarkable women born in New Amsterdam, was thrice married, and it is hazarding little of historical accuracy to say that a complete account of her family connections, by birth and marriage, would include a fuller history of the civil and military affairs of colonial times than the same account of any other person, born during the Dutch possession of Manhattan Island.

      PAULUS SCHRICK, her first husband, died Oct. 11, 1685 [1686?], just five months from the day of his marriage?an event which Dominie Selyns doubtless deemed sufficiently noteworthy, from the high social position of the young couple, to place in the church records. Their dwelling during their brief married life was on the east side of the Heeren Gracht (Broad Street.) They had no issue.

      She married, second, Aug. 26, 1687, JOHN SPRATT, of Wigton, in Galloway, Scotland, and had three daughters and one son baptized in the Dutch Church, in New York.

      She married, third, January 28, 1698-9, DAVID PROVOOST, JR., Mayor of New York in 1699, by whom she had no issue. . . .
