Topic: Brandybuck clan


  
 The Barrow-Downs
Meriadoc ‘Merry’ Brandybuck was one of the three hobbits to accompany Frodo Baggins on his big journey to destroy the One Ring.
An offspring of the wealthy Brandybuck clan from Buckland, he was especially close friends with Peregrin Took, with whom his name in the Ring War is closely associated.
The Brandybuck clan was well-off and well established in Brandy Hall, but they were often considered as a bit peculiar by other hobbits for living so near to a river and other strange lands.

 Rogorn - Meriadoc Brandybuck ( Kalimac Brandagamba )
One of the most distinguished Hobbits of history, remembered in the Annals of the Shire not only for his deeds in the year of the War of the Ring, but for his deep interest in the origins of the Hobbits themselves, as shown by his many contributions to the sum of Hobbit-scholarship.

A descendant of Gorhendad the founder of Buckland, and in turn an important ancestor of the Brandybuck family, Gormadoc is listed at the head of the genealogical table given in The Lord of the Rings.

Merry knew he was not an intruder, and for the moment, he was no Brandybuck either, but was just Merry, sitting on the floor of Uncle Paladin’s study, in front of the fire as he had a hundred times before.

When the Hobbits first came to the shores of the Baranduin river in Eriador, they were a semi nomadic people with a tribal social structure strongly tied to clan relationships.

But the Bolo messengers served only a small portion of the East Farthing, and soon their rates became too much to bear, for they charged whatever they thought they could get from the customer for the delivery of letters and parcels.
