Notes: Identification uncertain. This is the nearest Höfen to Neuchâtel. Correspondence lacks precise data, but as correspondent is a papetier, he is probably relatively local. Other Höfens are in Schaffhouse, Zug, Aargau, Thurgau, St Gallen, and there is even two further small Bernese settlemens of the same name at Reichenbach and Ursenbach. Only this Höfen, Höfen in Thurgau and Hofen [sic] in Schaffhouse are featured in the DHS, and the latter were both smaller settlements. The others were presumably tiny hamlets, if they existed at all, as they don't feature. Although the correspondent locates his settlement 'pres de Schoffen le Ggris' no place of this or similar names to Schoffen exists in Dictionnaire Historique de la Suisse.
