The Baggins family lives in [[the Shire]], mostly in or near the town of [[Hobbiton]]. They were seen as respectable until [[Bilbo Baggins]] set out on the quest for [[Erebor]] with [[Gandalf]] the Grey and thirteen [[Dwarves]]: when he returned he was seen as odd or queer, but also extremely rich.
+
 
+
Bilbo adopted his "nephew" [[Frodo Baggins]], who inherited the ''smial'' of [[Bag End]] after Bilbo left. Frodo himself was involved in the quest of [[the Lord of the Rings]], which ended the [[War of the Ring]].

+
The Baggins clan traces their origin to the first recorded Baggins, one ''Balbo Baggins'', who was born in or near Hobbiton in 1167 of the Shire reckoning (2767 [[Third Age]]). Bilbo is a great-grandson of Balbo, as was Frodo's father Drogo.
+
 
+
After Bilbo and Frodo left the only recorded Bagginses are the descendants of Bilbo's great-nephew ''Posco Baggins'', although many other descendants of Balbo Baggins are also recorded, under the ''Sackville-Bagginses'', as well as [[Peregrin Took]] and [[Meriadoc Brandybuck]] (through various interfamiliary marriages).

+
The name Baggins is a translation in [[English language|English]] of the actual [[Westron]] name ''Labingi'', which was believed to be related to the Westron word ''labin'', "bag".
+
 
+

*In the German translation the family name is Beutlin,

*In the French translation it is Sacquet,
