My mother is Glenys Hynes (nee Hoffe.unfortunately, there are no brothers to carry the name on on our branch).
Her father was Wilfred "Billly" Hoffe.
His father was Alfred John Hoffe.
His father was Philip Hoffe (had siblings: John, Jeremiah, Lucy, David, Eli)
His father was Joseph Hoffe.
Our family bible stated: "Joseph Hoffe arrived from England to the firm of Garland Brothers, Greenspond, Bonavista Bay later left and came to Gander Bay and carried out an extensive salmon business at Salt Island at the mouth of the Gander River."
I also correspond with descendents of Philip Hoffe's siblings.
If this is the family of Hoffes you are writing about, please do not hesitate to write.
