In the 15th century Káranice belonged to the estates of the Přestavlky fortress , the owners were Unka from Přestavlk, Dobřan from Kochovice and Vaněk from Kovalec. In the middle of the 16th century, the Lords of Pernstein acquired the desert fortress Přestavlky with the associated villages and added them to the Chlumetz rule . Johann von Pernstein , who had acquired the dominions in 1533, sold them to King Ferdinand I , who united them in 1547 to form a chamberlain for Chlumetz. In 1611, King Matthias signed the Chlumetz Chamber of Commerce to Wenzel Graf Kinsky von Wchinitz and Tettau for loyal services in obtaining the Bohemian Crown. After Count Wenzel Kinsky invaded the parish church of St. Ursula in Chlumetz in 1620 to stop Hussite services, an uprising broke out in the area. During the Thirty Years War the village became deserted. In the berní rula from 1654 only eight people are listed for Káranice. In 1775 a great peasant uprising broke out in the manor. In 1790 part of the property was parceled out for the settlement of immigrants.
