Aminoffs were introduced to Swedish House of Nobility in 1650 with the number of 446, and to Finnish House of Nobility in 1836 with the number of 36.
Aminoffs are offspring of Russian boyar Teuvo Aminev (c1560-1628) (died 1628) who was knighted in 1618. Aminev was the castle commander in Novgorod, which was conquered by the King of Sweden Gustav II Adolf in 1612.

Aminoff's is a traditional military family but in 1900s and 2000's they have been involved more in business and industry and as public servants. The Aminoff noble family is still active, and it has plenty of family members in Sweden and in Finland.
