A [[Hobbit]] of the [[Bolger Family|Bolger]] clan, whose marriage to [[Poppy Chubb-Baggins]] meant that she was the last of the [[Chubb-Bagginses]] to bear that family name. Filibert belonged to the same family as the better known [[Fredegar Bolger|Fredegar 'Fatty' Bolger]], but while these two were clearly related in some way, no detailed family record for the [[Bolger Family|Bolgers]] exists, at least in the canonical works. However, there are records in volume 12 of [[The History of Middle-earth]] suggesting that they were distant cousins, both descended through several generations from one [[Adalgar Bolger]].
