Where is Höfe?

In 1700's I have ancestors that lived in Höfe, according to the Evangelische Kirche records in Borgholzhausen. However I am unable to find Höfe on any maps in or around the Borgholzhausen area. Can someone help me find the locality?
Best Regards,

Hello Ralph.

„Höfe“ or „in den Höfen“ in the church registers of Borgholzhausen is a historic / ancient name for Winkelshütten. [Winkelshuetten]

It‘s located north-east of the historic center of Borgholzhausen, being more a name for an area than a place.


From the beginning of the 20th Century onwards you‘ll no longer find this term being used in the Borgholzhausen church registers.

...in adition.... when you have a look at the map

....the direction included is intended to outline the region which was called "Höfe" / "in den Höfen" in the 18. Century

Today near the border of the German states Northrhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony
