This manor was located on the land of Zasumuiza manor, near the mill of Steinhauer, next to Dzeguzkalns Hill. It was established by the pastor of St.Janis church Rötger Sehdens. He sold it to the widow of former wholesaler Fromhold Franzen and she owned this manor at the moment when J.C.Brotze depicted it - in 1794.
