Title: Genealogical and personal history of western Pennsylvania, Vol. 3
Author: Jordan, John W. (John Woolf), 1840-1921
Pg. 1351
The name of HOFFMAN is of German origin, and is probably derived from “Hoff” or “Hof,” meaning “court,” and “Mann,” meaning man.” This would indicate that the earlier bearers of it were courtiers or people of importance at a court.
