In 1683, the Keizersgracht 456-462 residences were constructed on the site of the carillon bell foundry of Francois (1609-1667) and Pieter Hemony (1619-1662), the most renowned bell founders of 17th Century Netherlands.

Frederick Coyett (1615-1687, born in Stockholm) retired here with his family as the first tenants, in 1685.

In 1647 and 1652, Coyett (揆一) served as chief of staff in Deshima, the Dutch VOC-trading post in Japan, and in 1656-1662 as the last governor of Dutch Formosa (Taiwan).
