Carl "Nibs" Cotton was the youngest child of Tolman Cotton.

[edit] History

Born in S.R. 1389,[1] Carl and his siblings spent much time in Bywater, and used to swim in the Bywater Pool with the Gamgee children often.[2] He had not yet come of age when the Ruffians entered the Shire, so his father ordered him to guard the house with a pitch fork while his father and brothers fought in the Battle of Bywater.[3]

[edit] Etymology

Carl was probably named after his ancestor, Carl, son of Cottar. The nickname "Nibs" has been a term of mock respect in historical English.[4]
