History of the House Residents:
The first known owner of the house, at the beginning of the 16th century, was a cutter named Vaněk. After a few unknown owners, in 1581 the house was acquired by a shoemaker, Leonard Tenk. In 1588 a gun maker Šebestián Posser or Prosser lived there until he was replaced by a can maker, Jan Jiří Dicizinger, who also worked for the Český Krumlov castle. In 1633 ownership of the house was taken over by a butcher, Melichar Faber. From 1683 - 1722 the house belonged to a draper, Matyáš Weigl. Hereafter, the house belonged to a hewer, a grenadier, a furrier, and, in 1929, a tinsmith.
