Jan Pieters Hogenhouck (-1651) got it by decree from Dirck Jacobs van Houten in 1634. He paid the 1585-1648 huizenprotocol OAD inv. 731 fol. 264r1d and the 1620-1632 verponding 475r3. Jan Pieters Hogenhouck, Pieter Jans Hogenhouck, and Pieter Molijn, deurwaerder, are all listed as paying the 1632-1654 verponding 485r1, 485r2. Jan Pieters sold it to Pieter Molijn 4d127v for 2650gl. His widow sold it in 1663 to Maerten Abrahams Hogenhouck (1617-1673) 4n239v 2225gl. Hugo d'Gravesande (x Margareta Maertens Hogenhouck) had it later. See Achter de Gevels, which notes (my translation):

In 1663 the house was the property of the brewer Maerten Hogenhouck. He paid 6000 guilders for it. He later bought two small houses on the former cloister grounds behind it.

In 1673 his daughter Margaretha inherited the house. She was married to Huge 's Gravesande. They did not live there because in 1674 Cornelis Bogaert seemed to be the main resident.

Hugo was a brewer at De Dubbele Sleutel on the Oude Delft (now number 93), where he also lived. He was also a city manager, among others a magistrate and six-time mayor. After Bogaert, regent Anthony Weveringh was the tenant. He was also several times a mayor. At the time apparently the small houses were broken off and a horse stable and carriage house built on the grounds.

In 1697 Hugo ’s Gravensande sold the house to gunpowder maker Salomon van der Heul for 15,000 guilders. Apparently the house was further extended in the following years, including the carriage house and stable. Salomon had his gunpowder factory with five powder mills on the Buitenwatersloot, a safe distance from the city. He also lived there. The house on the Oude Delft was for his daughter Debora. She was married to the clergyman Petrus Gribius, who announced Leeuwenhoek's death to the Royal Society in a letter
