History of the House Residents:
We do not know much about the first residents of the house in the 16th century. We only know that the house was occupied by a weaver. From 1617 - 1621 the house belonged to Petr Puma or Pauma. A grinder Štefan Pierpauer resided in the house until the middle of the 1620's. In 1679, after a line of other owners came via a princely hunter, František Jakub Janovský, who lived in the house until the beginning of the 18th century. In the first three decades of this century a drapery trade was conducted in the house. In the house resided drapers Jan Karel Salussa, František Rehberger, and, in 1734, Vincenc Tukh. Future owners of the house included a disabled person, an imperial army member, a teacher, a clerk, and a hewer. In 1929 a tailor lived there, along with a locksmith, and later a shop was in the house.
