Burrowes - C



Shire hobbits who may have been wealthy. Tolkien chose the name for its similarity to 'chubby', but the actual English surname refers to a type of river fish.


A collateral branch of the Baggins family of Shire hobbits.


This family of Shire hobbits is mentioned only in one of Tolkien's letters.


Shire hobbits found primarily in Bywater. The name derives not from the plant, but from 'cottage-town', which may have been an earlier name for Bywater. The Westron form of the name was Hlothran, of the same meaning.
