History of the House Residents :
A record from the second oldest civic market book of Český Krumlov informs us that in 1572 "Anna kanclířka", the wife of the Rosenberg chancellor Václav Albín z Helfenburka, sold this newly built house to Hans Strohschneider, known in Czech as Řezáč. In 1589 Hans Řezáč sold this house to a draper named Hans Andres. The surname of the new owner, who lived here until the year 1619, sounded like André. The next owner of the house, Jiří Pitsch, was also a draper. In 1654 the ownership was transferred to Jiří Köpfhamer, after whom Mariana Köpfhamer took over the house.

In 1687 the bricklayer Řehoř Gutschl resided in the house. His family lived here until 1696. From 1696 - 1758 a bakery trade was conducted in the house. At that time Matyáš Springinsfeldt, a baker, resided there. From 1717 Jan Forko also resided there. The house belonged to his family until 1805, at which time František and Mariana Herberger assumed ownership. In 1836, Ondřej and Anna Zwifelhofer assumed ownership of the house.
