Hoffbauer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient and distinguished surname Hoffbauer is of German origin. It is made up of two Middle High German elements, "hof," meaning "farm," and "bur," meaning "farmer"; it is therefore likely that the surname was originally borne by a farmer. The Middle High German origins indicate that the name first emerged in Southern Germany.

Early Origins of the Hoffbauer family


The surname Hoffbauer was first found in Swabia, where it is believed to have first emerged. It was a common practice of the time to identify someone by the kind of work he did; thus, it is likely that the name Hoffbauer was bestowed on the original bearer as an indication of his profession. The young Hoffbauer family declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending its influence in struggles for power and status within the region. It branched into many houses, and its contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
