The family ultimately removing into the Palatinate (a region in S/W Germany now the Rhineland), on account of confiscation of estates and titles because of alleged participation in the Bohemian Insurrection, and because of having embraced the Protestant faith.

Conclusions
For the previous 7 generations or more the Hoffman family held great wealth from holdings of gold mines in Boskowitz, Moravia in eastern Bohemia (now the Czech Republic). The family from the early generations had involvement with the church but had problems with the Theology. It appears this conflict caused the family to prefer to live in Austria or Germany where they may have had more religious freedom but access to their investments in Bohemia. It appears that Palus was the last in the lineage to hold this great wealth.
