Around 1450 lived here Gecke Eysinga.  He had a daughter, Hack, who married twice.  First with Aede Keimpes Jongema from Rauwerd (Jongema State) and then with Tjalling Bolta.  This Tjalling took the name of his wife and called sight now Tjalling of Eysinga.  From this second marriage was born a son, Feye of Eysinga who resided under the Beneficial from 1543 to Rinsumageest.  He was married to a Hermana from Minnertsga and from this marriage was born a daughter again Hack, who married Botte Wilco van Holdinga the Holdinga State to Anjum.  Their daughter Doedt married Georg Baron Wolfgang rectangular Schwarzenberg and Hohenlansberg of Great Terhorne to Beetgum.  So Eysinga State came into the hands of the already wealthy family Thoe Schwarzenberg and Hohenlansberg.  Successively have Johan Onuphrius, Georg and Wilco Wilco Holdinga rectangular Schwarzenberg and Hohenlansberg lived in Eysinga State.  Even in the 18th century continued this family live in Rinsumageest.  Three brothers have lived in the state.  First Georg Wolfgang who was grietman of Dantumadeel and later Menaldumadeel and died in 1739. After John Sicco, General of Infantry and Governor of Namur, deceased in Rinsumageest in 1757. Finally, the youngest of the three, Michael Onuphrius, who from 1725 to 1758 was grietman.  The son of Michael, Wilco, died in 1788 as the last male descendant of this branch of the family Thoe Schwarzenberg and Hohenlansberg. 
At the time that this Wilco owner was there disappeared largely ban the forest around the state.  Wumkes reports in his "City and village chronicle of Friesland":

July 3, 1769: Sale of 500 oak in the forest of grietman Schwartzenberg to Rinsumageest. 
October 19, 1787: Auction of 200 to 300 beech logs on Eysinga State under Rinsumageest. 
After the death of Wilco is a "Boel Good furniture, porcelain, copper, tin, hunting and vischgerei, four guns at the home of the late grietman Schwartzenberg to Rinsumageest" on October 13, 1788 and on September 17, 1789 "Used the country estate of grietman Schwartzberg in Rinsumageest ". 
"The Present State" (. Book II, p 243) describes as follows the house around 1785, "Rinsumageast ... ... Veele adorned by beautiful houses, especially the old Adelyke State Eysinga equipped with a very clean house, it raised from the water, surrounded by a heavy graft, and is built on two zwaare vaulted cellars. Outside the graft, on the north side of the house is a large square, and a horse stable. In the East "is at its end a spacious garden, which is outlined with a second graft, and return to 't round has a nice outside cingulum ". 
In 1789 a son of Spin Onno van Haren, the great state sold to JP Andrae Haren was, that in 1793 a coach house, a barn and a coachman at home had built.  However, in 1798 Squire Van Haren had enough of the house.  The time was therefore not favorable to the nobility and certainly not for the House of Orange.  Eysinga State was sold to the carpenter Oberman, who sold it to Johannes Jacobus Loensma who sold back however again Oberman, who sold it again etc., etc. A few years was the proud home from hand to hand, in whole or in installments.  The pastor / merchant Cahais has bought a part of the gardens and courtyards.  In March 1805, it offers out of hand for sale to "the English park of Eisinga-State".  Who had the house all those years of ownership I do not know, but at least there was not a penny more spent on maintenance and everything is demolished in 1805.  The only 12-year-old coach house, stable and coach-house remained standing and were arranged as workhouse in 1820.  The workhouse was called "Square House".  In 1909 is demolished this last remnant of Eysinga State.
