I am researching the family name Glockhoff and so far it does not seem to be a very common name. My ancestor came over to the US as Glockhof with only one "f". Records state that he was born in Mecklenburg-Schwerin in 1826. It is my understanding that glock means bell in German but I am not sure what the hoff means. Would appreciate any info about the meaning and I am curious if anyone has heard of the name before. Thanks!!
