The oldest mention of Schouwenburg dates from 1333. Whether there was already a house at that time is unknown. Two centuries later in 1544 Otto van Haisjes sold Schouwenburg to Aert van Arler. We know from a sort of old tax register that a substantial house existed in 1623.

The oldest parts, the marble floor in the hall and the beams on the floor of the current house, date from that time. The estate remained the property of the descendants of Aert van Arler until 1761. By inheritance in the female line, the noble names of the owners changed regularly: Sageman, Heeck, van Zuylen van Nijevelt and van Dedem. The last Frederik Hendrik van Dedem lived beyond his means, so that after his death in 1761, Schouwenburg had to be sold to pay off his debts. The next owner-occupier was John Mcleod. After the death of his wife, he sold Schouwenburg in 1777 to the Baron Adolph Pieter Carel van Spaen.
