Best I could find, maybe it'll give someone else some thoughts ...

Closest I could find was Barrus, which is a derivation of Barrows:

Barrows
English: topographic name for someone who lived by a grove or an ancient burial mound.

Possible that the name was one of these. "F" "S" & "Z" were often transcribed incorrectly.

BARRUFFI
BARRUFFO
BARUFFO

Meaning: Molto rari sono specifici del napoletano, potrebbero essere di origine iberico portoghese
