The ancient and distinguished German surname Hofheinz is composed of two elements: "Hof," meaning "farm, estate, or court," and "Heinz," a diminutive of "Heinrich." Thus, it is likely that the progenitor of the surname was someone who lived on the estate or farm of a man known as Heinz.

Hofheinz Early Origins



The surname Hofheinz was first found in Hessen, where the ancestral home of the family is thought to be located. The young Hofheinz family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Hessian society.
