Physical Description
Adalgrim Took was the only son and child of Hildigrim Took and Rosa Baggins, being born in S.R. 1280. Through both his mother's and his father's sides of the family he was related to both Bilbo and Frodo, in particular, he was Bilbo's first cousin.

Adalgrim had five children - of which four were daughters - with an unknown wife. We only know the names of the youngest two of his children: Paladin and Esmeralda, who were born in 1333 and 1336 respectively. As such, Adalgrim was also the grandfather of both Pippin and Merry.

Adalgrim never became Thain himself, but his heirs were to become succeed to the Thainship starting with Paladin. Paladin II became Thain in 1415 after his second cousin Thain Ferumbras died without heir, thirty-three years after Adalgrim's death. Adalgrim died in 1382 at the age of 102.
