In 1566 a shoemaker, Wolf Pils, resided in the house and three years later was replaced by a furrier, Tomáš Hösslinger or Hesslhover. During 1581 - 1587 the house belonged to a shoemaker, Ambrož Pils. Another owner of the house was a tailor, Jiří Schön, who owned it until 1638. During the next four years, Juliana Freislová took care of the house.
