Bolger Family

Revision as of 20:33, 3 February 2007 by The Lord Rhys (Talk | contribs)

A Hobbit family of Fallohidish origin, associated with the village of Budgeford, on The Water in the Eastfarthing of the Shire. In common with the Brandybucks and the Tooks, the Bolgers had a penchant for heroic names, and so as well as Fredegar (the most important Bolger in Tolkien's work), we find such noble names as Fastolph, Gundabald and Odovacar.
