The life of the celebrated Renaissance poet Petar Hektorović is mostly associated with Stari Grad and its Tvrdalj, fortified mansion, and Hvar, which in its time created vigorous discussion; however, documents from the Hektorović archives show that his estates, like most of the landed estates of the gentry, were scattered over the area of the entire commune. It is little known that the poet had a highly organised large estate on the island of Vis, which he inherited from his father, Marin Hektorović. The Hektorovićes had been a presence on Vis right from their progenitor, Hektor Golubinić. The last Hektorovićes too were recorded on Vis. During his lifetime, the poet leased out his Vis estate. In 1558 he leased a house, a hut with a cellar, garden and several items of land in Luka, Vis, to Nikola Šoltić. He contracted a similar lease with Ivan Balci in 1552. Petar Hektorović mentioned the Vis estate in several places in his will in 1559, without any precise descriptions of the real estate. He stipulated that the land and houses be leased out, as he had himself been accustomed to do, and that the revenues be deposited in the Hvar commune chancellery. The revenues were to be applied to the execution of his bequests, above all to the completion of Tvrdalj. One provision of the will was particularly important, that touching the combining of the lands and houses into a fidei commissum, or entail, an inalienable and inseparable whole that was to be inherited by the legitimate male members of the Hektorović family. The Hektorović fidei commissum, that is, the matter of his estate, led to what was probably the longest civil suit in the history of the commune of Hvar, and lasted, in various forms, from the first split of 1595 until the mid-19th century. At the beginning of the 17th century, the Vis summer residence and the house and garden at Cojno polje mainly belonged to the Korcula family of the Arneris. In the mid-17th century the Hvar Benedictines had an ongoing suit against the Arneris to do with boundary rights, while Matij and his sun Marcantun Hektorović had a suit against the Arneris concerning the inheritance of the poet's fidei commissum on Vis from the end of the 17th century to the middle of the 18th. The documents relating to these disputes are kept in the Croatian Academy Historical Science institute in Dubrovnik, in the Hektorović Archives. Among these documents, particular importance must be attached to the drawing of the poet's complex in Vis of 1647, the description of the complex with measurements of 1704, and a letter of 1752 in which the poet's ownership over the house and garden in the area of Cojno polje in the interior of the island is definitely borne out. The same set of documents also includes drawings from the mid-18th century of the lands belonging to the poet Petar Hektorović, giving the precise location of the lands, with the names of the surrounding proprietors and the year in which the Hektorović family acquired them.
