Messages from the family of Wulffen


The gender of house-Wulff'sche Neindorf in Halberstadt derives its name from the predator “Wulf and Wolf” from. Accordingly, it called itself Schlechtweg Wulf or Wolf without the preposition “of”. At the time of Leopold Kaisof (1658-1705) It was custom, the name of the old nobility in general, the preposition “of” vorzusetzen. The sons of Heinrich Christoff added to the name nor the ending “science” and then the race was called henceforth “Wulffen”.
