The first known owner of the house was, at the beginning of the sixteenth century, a soap boiler named Wolf who in 1538 in his last will gave it to his wife. She sold it in the 1550s to cloth-maker Prokeš. After his death, his daughter Anna (known as Bohnuška) who also was a soap boiler, inherited the house. In 1581, Šimon Ryneš moved into the house and by the end of the 1580s sold it to the Rosenbergs. In 1593, Petr Wok von Rosenberg gave the house to laundress Anička Malá as a compensation for her house, which was to be torn down in order to make room for a new Rosenberg armory.
