Paulus Dirckszen Hoff was born in 1620 at Hoven, Gelderland, Netherlands to Paulus Dircke Hoff and Jannettee Jejanes Hoff. He came to America in 1645 and lived on Long Island until late in his life when he possibly moved to Lawrenceville, New Jersey. He married Geertje Jannetse Willemse and their children were: Derrick and Lysbeth. After the death of Geertje, Paulus married Annetje Hermanse and they were the parents of Geertruyd. Paulus adopted the name Hoff late in life. His will was made March 29, 1688. He died May 24, 1692 in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York and is presumed buried in that area.
