The House of Soiron was built in 1785 on a plot at Grote Gracht where the House of Cumberland had stood until then. Cumberland was one of the leading field men in the battle of Lafelt (near Maastricht) during the War of the Austrian Succession in 1747. He probably occupied the house at that time.
In October 1785 the dilapidated property was purchased by the wealthy Andreas Joseph Soiron (André) and his brother Wilhelmus Martinus (Guillaume), both canons of the Saint Servatius Chapter. They commissioned their brother Mathias Soiron, city architect of Maastricht, to design a city palace to replace the old house.
The late-classic facade and sumptuous interior showcase the wealth and prestige of the two brothers.
