major = Meierhof in German; according to Hungarian Pallas Lexicon, the difference between a "major" -ranch- and "puszta" -also a ranch- was of location: a large landowner established "major's" to handle the work on outlying areas. So, major is like a farmstead or grange. "Meierhof" was a very big farm (with many workers and lots of land) owned by a nobleman or by a monastery. "Hof" is to be translated as "farm" or "estate"; the German word "Meier" developed from the Latin word "major"; from the English words "Major" and "Mayor" you will guess that the "Meier" was the man in charge of the farm. Often a "Meierhof" became a regular village in the course of time.
