He was born in Tofte as a son of landowner Mads Trulsen Tofte (1750–1823) and Elisabeth Borch (1749–1826). In November 1819 in Drammen he married Christine Søeberg (1797–1848). His daughter married businessman Thorvald Meyer, who inherited his enterprises, and he was also an ancestor of Erling Christophersen and Christian Schweigaard Stang.

He was elected as the first mayor of Cristiania in 1837, and also served on the executive committee in 1838, 1841 and 1842. Tofte was a board member of Enerhaugen Asylum and founded Piperviken Asylum, and also financed the children's hospital Tofte's Gift in Munkedamsveien. The latter moved to Helgøya in 1896.
