- 1653, Dec 1; Teunissen had a second law suit on December 1, 1653 when Jan Hendricksen demanded to get his boat which was in the hands of Teunissen. The boat had been lost by Hendricksen.

Deft denies..."
- 1657-1658; Teunissen was accused of having relations with his step daughter Tryntie Cornelis. This case went on from April 1657 through Mar 1658. Apparently, the case against Dirck and Tryntie was not further pursued...In fact there is some evidence that the charge against him was unfounded. First the mother's implicit belief in the daughter's innocence. Secondly, that Teunissen was not severely punished, if at all, for on December 22, 1658, he acted as sponsor at the baptism of Christian Pieterszen and Tryntie Pieters.
