GOFF Family History

This surname is of Olde English, French, and Celtic origins. Recorded in several forms as shown below it has several possible origins. The first is that it derives from the pre 7th century word gobha, or the Cornish gov or the Breton gof, all meaning a blacksmith. As such it was originally to be found in the East Anglian region where it was introduced from Brittany by followers of Duke William of Normandy, in or after the famous Conquest of 1066. The second possible origin is a derivation from the Welsh word coch meaning red, and originally given as a nickname to a person with red hair or a ruddy complexion.
