surname Toff #germany


Margaret Fullarton and David Mark <fullmark@...>
 

Well, my ignorance has been lightened somewhat by you good people who have
assisted me both privately and through the list. I am now going to
investigate further but it does seem, as you say, that Toff may well have
come >from Tov. In fact a Dutch Toff told me that his name comes >from
brothers who arrived in Holland, made some money and distributed it
charitably and thus earned the name Tov/Toff. He has reverted to Tov since
moving to Israel. So like you all, I shall search on. Many thanks.
